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.
