Open WI.DE. SRAM AXS Force 650b Complete Gravel Bike Grey
Monster Tyres, Nimble Ride The OPEN U.P. inspired a generation of gravel bikes that could fit up to 2.1” tyres. The WI.DE. (Winding Detours) can run even bigger tyres while still fitting road cranks! The monster tyres help you conquer the most extreme terrain, the performance geometry & narrow Q-factor keep you efficient while the steering geometry keeps you nimble. Nimble doesn’t just mean great geometry, nimble means keeping the weight down too with Smartmount technology mounting the calipers directly without any adapters
What Is The WI.DE.? Open’s U-Turn fork has always had massive tyre clearance, making it the perfect match for the WI.DE. With 650b gravel or mountain bike tyres up to 2.4”, rutted singletrack, slippery roots and loose rocks are no match With 700c gravel tyres up to 46mm, even the toughest gravel roads are tackled at lightning speed With 700c road tyres (we recommend 35-40mm wide), you have the most comfortable road bike ever invented
Smarter means lighter! Smartmount attaches the caliper directly onto the fork, without any adaptors. The mounts are positioned pre-set for 160mm discs (the only sensible choice for gravel bikes). Lighter, cleaner, stiffer and safer. Check the specifications for more details on how to mount each brand of caliper.
More Stuff Carrying Capability As your Wide Detours get wider, you want to take more stuff but without it getting unwieldy. So you can mount an extra bottle under the downtube and a toolbox under the BB, ideal for stability. The tool box mounts are off-center to create extra clearance to the chainring. If you don’t use a toolbox, you can mount a larger water bottle under the downtube. The WI.DE. is also designed to take a (strapless) toptube bag as well as saddle, handlebar and frame bags for longer high-speed adventures.
Wire Stays Vertically thin chainstays and seatstays provide compliance, while their lateral width and layup ensure rock-solid propulsion. Truly the best of both worlds.
Flat-out Downtube The downtube drives stiffness, connecting your steering centre to your drivetrain. The flat sides places strips of ultra-high modulus carbon where it matters most.
Zero-setback Seat Tube A zero-offset seatpost is lighter & more efficient, so we have designed our seattube angle such that most riders can use a zero-offset rather than an off-set seatpost.
Internal Routing Internal cables & hoses stay clean & protected and frankly, they look better. Our MultiStop design accepts 1x, 2x, mechanical, Di2 and eTap.
Thruthread Dropouts This design uses the same threads to hold the thru-axle and lock the derailleur hanger into the frame. Simpler, lighter, optimized for the stiffest thru-axle: Syntace X-12.
Smart-mount 160 Flatmount brake calipers attach directly onto the fork & frame, positioned for 160mm discs. No front or rear adaptors/spacers required.
