Open U.P. Your MIND To Custom Paint!

We are offering free custom paint on Open MIND and Open UP builds. And it is not too late to curate your build for a summer delivery - custom-painted MIND and UP frames are currently taking 3-6 weeks (depending on complexity of scheme).

The UP or Unbeaten Path, is the original everywhere bike that later became the gravel category. Yes, Open invented 'gravel'

The Open MIND is Open's characteristically revolutionary approach to a pure road machine. Their aim was to produce a featherweight carbon bike that rides like an Italian steel thoroughbred. They came mighty close.
