Continuing the momentum generated from the classic, the new U.P. was designed to be lighter than the original. Still the Jack of All Trades we all fell in love with, the new U.P. can be ridden with 700c or 650b/27.5" wheels, with slick road tires or knobby trail tires, and with drop handlebars or flat MTB bars.Discover The OPEN U.P.

The Open U.P. debuted just last year, and we immediately dubbed it “the multi-tool of bikes,” given its ability to do virtually anything you could want to do on two wheels. From trail exploration to criterium racing to long-distance adventure trekking, the U.P. is ready, all at a low weight and amazing strength. How could it get better? Well, Open found a way to improve upon it. Introducing the all-new Open U.P.P.E.R., an even lighter, faster, and more capable U.P.
For such a strong and capable frame, the standard U.P. already weighed a very respectable 1100g. Yet, Open’s engineers were able to remove a whopping 230g, creating the 870-gram U.P.P.E.R., by using advanced proprietary carbon construction.See the Open U.P.P.E.R.
Despite shedding all that weight, the U.P.P.E.R. makes no sacrifice in structural integrity compared to the U.P., still offering superb stiffness, responsiveness, and durability.See the Open U.P.P.E.R.
The original U.P. set a benchmark for combining performance with utility. The U.P.P.E.R. maintains that tradition, offering the same load bearing capability, disc brakes, bosses for accessory mounts, and clearance for wide tires.See the Open U.P.P.E.R.
The sleek proprietary fork on the U.P.P.E.R. is also distinct from that on the standard U.P. Lighter, and now using flat-mount disc caliper mounts for reduced weight, it’s called the U-Turn fork, and it’s standard on all U.P.P.E.R. bikes and framesets.See the Open U.P.P.E.R.
