Open U.P.P.E.R.

We didn't think the U.P. could get any better but the guys at Open Cycles have now created the Open U.P.P.E.R. a lighter version of the U.P. with flat mount brake mounts; and its in Matte Black.

The Open U.P.P.E.R. combines a performance-oriented cross/road geometry carbon frameset with clearance for mountain bike tires. So you can ride anywhere, and ride fast.

Frame weight: 870g (330g lighter than the U.P.)

Fork: OPEN U-turn with 12mm thru-axle (the U.P. uses the 3T Luteus fork).

Get out of town on asphalt, hit the gravel roads or switch to single track. The geometry gets you there fast; the big tires make you unstoppable.
The U.P.P.E.R. fits 27" mountain bike tyres up to 2.1" wide and road wheels with a 40mm tyre. As long as there is a 6mm clearance between tyre and frame anything is possible.

For sizing information and guidance you can speak to or email us to ensure you get a correctly sized frame.Complete builds and wheel options are available in store.

What our clients say

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"

    Bauke Mollema
  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    Ed H

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "I had my second fitness test this weekend and on the first 8 minute time trial I'd improved average power output by a whopping 41 watts over the previous test. This is almost entirely down to the new position!"

    Alan B
  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

    Matt H

    Seven Evergreen SL

  • "Thanks very much for consultation last week - since I saw you I do not have anything like the same amount of pain I was experiencing previously. I am so much more at ease with my new positioning and my posture feels right now."
