OPEN U. P.

Classic U.P.  vs  New U.P.  vs  U.P.P.E.R.

The 3 members of the U.P. (Unbeaten Path) family all combine a road riding position with clearance for mountain bike tires. Get out of town on asphalt, hit the gravel roads or switch to singletrack. Your position gets you there fast; the big tires make you unstoppable.

The frame is available in three versions:

The Classic U.P. with 3T Luteus II fork and post-mount disc brakes

The New U.P. with OPEN U-Turn fork and flat-mount disc brakes

The superlight U.P.P.E.R. with OPEN U-turn fork and flat-mount disc brakes

Every U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. shares the same shape, geometry, intended use and most importantly: tire clearance. But they differ in layup, weight, fork, disc brake mounts, thru-axles and colour.

“The Open U.P. will change where you ride. A long-term review of this gravel/’cross/road bike proves that it really is as versatile as it promises.

It feels natural on pavement and somehow still takes to the dirt like it was designed for it—a blend I’ve yet to experience with other bikes.”

“The compact build and the weight of barely 8kg give the bike an agility you don’t expect with these big tires.

This bike exceeded my already high expectations.

An incredible bike. Despite the mountain bike tires, you feel like you’re riding a road bike.

Innovative frame concept, smart details, light. With this versatility, the U.P. will likely offer an important push to the development of all gravel bikes.”
