OPEN's WI.DE. (WInding
DEtours if you want to be formal) is proving to be a
gravel/adventure best seller. It's no surprise - with the ability
to take up to 700c x 46mm or 27.5 x 2.1in tyres it's an extremely
fun bike with some serious off-road chops.
There's a slightly more upright riding position compared to its
U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. siblings, and those distinctive dropped
chainstays on both sides provide the extra tyre clearance whilst
maintaining an efficiently narrow roadie-like Q-factor, and also
allow for a seriously chunky box section behind the bottom bracket
for extra stiffness without extra weight.
Overall this is a gravelplus bike that feels very much like a
road bike on the smooth stuff, but can handle pretty much anything
you want to throw at it on the trail. We love 'em.
