Three words describe OPEN Cycle: bikes, open and simple.

 

Gerard and Andy from OPEN both live and breathe bikes. Andy’s career spans from downhill racer (back when helmets were

optional!) to CEO of a mountain & road bike company, BMC. Gerard’s career includes co-founding Cervélo, where's he's done

everything from engineering and design to sales, supply chain and marketing.

 

OPEN means open to new ideas; from the customers, retailers, vendors and OPEN ourselves. Open to show the intricacies of the OPEN products but also the company. Open even to share issues with some of our customers.

 

If open is the goal, simple is the tool.

 

“Relentless simplicity” is OPEN's guiding principle. Reduce the number of models and you simplify production, logistics, customer decision making, the website, everything. Avoid traditional advertising or sponsorships and free up precious time. Transfer logistics to third parties and you can focus on what matters most, which in OPEN's case means:

 

 

  • Designing better bikes.

  • Connecting with customers.

 

And when you put it that way, is there really anything else to do?

OPEN Wi.De. 

(Winding Detours)

The OPEN U.P. inspired a generation of gravel bikes that could fit up to 2.1” tyres. The WI.DE. (Winding Detours) can run even bigger tyres while still fitting road cranks!
The monster tyres help you conquer the most extreme terrain, the performance geometry & narrow Q-factor keep you efficient while the steering geometry keeps you nimble.

 

With 650b gravel or mountain bike tyres up to 2.4”, rutted singletrack, slippery roots and loose rocks are no match
With 700c gravel tyres up to 46mm, even the toughest gravel roads are tackled at lightning speed
With 700c road tyres (we recommend 35-40mm wide), you have the most comfortable road bike ever invented

Includes: OPEN U-Turn fork, headset and thru axles

Colour: grey, orange, RTP

Weight: 1,040g (size M, +/-3%)

Price:  AU$5,099.- (Frame and fork)

Available sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL

New OPEN U.P.

The New U.P. still offers the wide range of tire compatibility up to 2.1” and all the way down to 28mm road tires. The frame has been lightened up by 70 grams, and the new U-turn fork saves another 65 grams. The New U.P. has been further upgraded to accept flat-mount disc brakes and gets a new carbon layup, as well as new dedicated hardware including superlight Carbon-Ti axles.

 

Includes: Frame, headset, seatpost clamp

Colour: blue, green

Weight: M: 1,040g

Price: AU$4,599.-

OPEN U.P.P.E.R.

The superlight U.P.P.E.R. with OPEN U-turn fork for flat-mount disc brakes.

Overall, the U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. share the same principles of intended use, same tyre clearance, same exact shape and geometry. But they differ in layup, weight, fork, disc brake mounts, thru-axles and colour

OPEN ONE+

The ONE+ is a zero-compromise XC racing machine; our customers expect this from us and so we made absolutely no compromise here. Boost, a BB92 bottom bracket and our Thru-Thread thru axle increase drivetrain stiffness further, while new Wire-stays improve vertical compliance & traction. A dozen more tweaks and updates make the ONE+ a much, much better frame than we ever thought possible.

And then the bonus: Boost gave us enough space for 29x2.4” tires and tons of mud clearance, perfect for the ever more demanding XC courses. And similar to what we did on the U.P. the ONE+ also provides space to put in a 27.5x3.0” tire! While there are other frames that offer to fit both wheel sizes, they are usually heavy and not that much fun. Because the ONE+ has a zero-compromised XC frame that is still sub-900 gram, it’s super light not only as an XC racer but also as a 27.5+ tire go-anywhere bike. This makes it not only an interesting option for tough, fun rides but even for very demanding XC courses. More tire, more fun, more speed!
