Why does that gravel bike have mountain bike tires? Have you ever seen a brown bike before? What's the deal with airplane food - I mean is this stuff bad or what? This bike raises a lot of questions in the shop and certainly turns a lot of heads. Open continues to push the envelope on what a gravel bike can be, and this is a shining example of that. HUGE tire clearance, super lightweight (and super comfortable) carbon layup, and iconic minimalist tubing and graphics. This bike looks so much fun standing still, and can handle basically anything short of downhill mountain bike trails. The Campagnolo Ekar group provides some very smooth shifting and is, in our opinion, one of the most sensible 1x setups out there with its largest 3 cassette cogs acting essentially as "bailout gears" for those especially tough climbs. Stop by and throw a leg over this thing!
WHAT IS THE WI.DE.? -With 650b gravel or mountain bike tires up to 2.4”(61mm), rutted singletrack, slippery roots and loose rocks are no match -With 700c gravel tires up to 46mm, even the toughest gravel roads are tackled at lightning speed -With 700c road tires (we recommend 35-40mm wide), you have the most comfortable road bike ever invented
