AXS on an UP? OMG!

The OPEN U.P. is one of our most popular "multi purpose" bikes, capable of effortless mile-munching on road and in its element on the rough stuff.

Andy from OPEN's latest build is this U.P. with the latest SRAM AXS wireless electronic 12-speed groupset. For this one he's chosen to focus on road performance first, whilst retaining decent off-road capability for bridleways and those linking gravel sections.

A 2x12 drivetrain and large-volume, fairly slick René Herse tyres make for a fast road bike that won't be shy at hitting the trails.

Check out the build on YouTube, below, and build your own custom OPEN U.P. (with AXS or any other groupset) in our online Bike Builder:
