OPEN call it "GravelPlus", we call it More Than Road, whatever
you call it, the U.P. is a bike built to tackle an exceptionally
wide variety of conditions.
Ultegra Di2 2x shifting offers speed on road and the ability to
deal happily with off-road climbs. The Roval CLX 32 carbon wheelset
is properly aero but also incredibly tough (and boasts ceramic
bearings for the ultimate grit resistance). Shod with grippy WTB
Venture TCS 47mm tyres this is a bike that can go wherever you
point it - fast.
3T's SuperGhiaia bars are particularly interesting, with a
unique profile that keeps the hoods vertical, for maximum comfort
and efficiency, but then flares the lower section of the drops
dramatically, giving a wider stance for more control. It's a shape
that's been specifically designed for mixed surface riding, and as
such is the perfect match for the U.P.
We can build you your very own custom U.P. and ensure the
perfect fit. Check out some of the many options available in our
