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'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."

    New Cyclist

  • "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

  • "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"

    Hannah Barnes

    National Champion / Professional Bike Rider

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."

  • "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!"
