The clean lines of the WI.DE. really shine in this neat, capable
build. OPEN's "tackle anything" carbon frameset is extremely
versatile, and we've been building quite a variety of WI.DE.s
recently, each uniquely tailored to their individual owner (and of
course perfectly fitted).
DT Swiss really hit the ground running with their first
gravel-focused wheels, and the carbon-rim GRC 1400, with their
tried and tested 240-series hubs, are fantastic performers without
any excess weight.
SRAM Force CX1 was one of the pioneers of the "1x" revolution,
and it still performs brilliantly, with those chunky hoods
providing plenty of grip and comfort when the going gets rough.
Panaracer's Gravelking SK tyres make an always welcome
appearance, here in 43mm width, giving the perfect blend of
traction on the trails and smooth rolling on the road for a bike
with the WI.DE.'s aims.
