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 wanted to pass on praise for Jimmy, his knowledge, patience and ability to address problem areas I presented was exceptionally. As expected the bike fit was far superior to anything I have had in the past but most importantly I genuinely feel it’s improved my cycling in comfort and in speed."

  • "Hey Julian and Phil, I hope you are both well. I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great! Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before. All the best, Hannah"

  • "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."

    Jane B
  • "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
  • "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!"
