Another variation on the OPEN WI.DE. theme, and this one is
sporting Shimano's new GRX gravel-focused groupset - here in 1x
configuration with Di2 electronic shifting.
The clean lines of the new GRX cranks really suit the OPEN's
sleek frameset, and together with a classic ENVE seatpost and
cockpit make for a very well integrated whole.
One of the standouts on this build is the wheelset, another
relative newcomer to the gravel scene... DT Swiss bring aero to the
world of gravel/adventure wheels with the 42mm deep, carbon GRC
1400 SPLINE. Despite their aero profile they weigh in at just 1611g
per pair in this 700c size, and they use DT's 240-series hubs for
reassuring strength and durability. Naturally they're tubeless
ready, and we've set these up tubeless with Panaracer's trusty
Gravelking SKs in a 35mm width.
There's so much you can do with a WI.DE. and we love finding new
combinations to suit each individual rider's fit and requirements.
