Bike of the Year, the OPEN WI.DE. is a regular feature in the
Build Gallery. One of our favourite things about this unique
frameset is its sheer versatility, and every build is a little bit
different, tailored to the needs (and perfectly fitted to) each
This SRAM Force 1x equipped build includes something a little
bit different, in the shape of the Tailfin carbon rack. This
minimalist, elegant quick release rack is designed to be easy to
take on and off, and super secure in use, despite weighing just
275g (it can carry loads of up to 18kg).
The rack comes with its own 24L panniers, but reassuringly both
rack and panniers are compatible with other brands, so you can
easily mix and match between bikes if required.
The rest of the build uses tried and tested "more than road"
components, all carefully selected to achieve the perfect fit.
Build your own custom WI.DE. in our interactive online Bike
Builder, or get in touch to discuss the
wide range of options available.
