Open WI.DE v’s Open U.P.

The WI.DE. dials up Open’s off-road credentials. We have many clients who use their Open UPPER as a defacto fast-bunch race-bike as well as potential gravel interloper. In contrast the WI.DE. is for those clients (me actually) who want to give little away in terms of lightness/stiffness/speed, but also want geometry and clearances to facilitate more fun and control on those occasions when gravel gives way to rocks and tree-roots.

I only ever rode my Open UP in a 650bx2.1 MTB set-up. I tolerated a slightly cumbersome road experience for the pure fun of more technical single-track and more vertiginous gradients. My only reservations at the time was that the original U.P. geometry was a little aggressive for both my troublesome back and rapidly declining trail-skills. They read my mind, or at least my review, and the WI.DE. resolves all of the above with a couple of strokes of Gerard and Andy’s draftsmen’s pens.
The WI.DE. has clearances for up to a 650bx2.4 MTB tyre – that is enough for even me. I sense that most people will default spec their WI.DE. with a 650b MTB set-up in the same way as Gravel+ and UPPER owners naturally migrate to a 700x35ish mixed-use tyre.
I sense that the WI.DE. has a different geometry – the size L feels perfect for me - I suspect but don’t know for sure that the WI.DE. has a lower bottom-bracket, and/or a longer headtube? This information is not in the public domain at the time of writing – please check back here and I will update as soon as we know more. Update Seot 2019 - WI.DE. geometry is in fact different
The other big difference between the Gravel + UP and UPPER and WI.DE. is that the latter is wired only for 1 x 11 or 12 configuration - i.e. there is no 2 x option. This makes sense to me – I only ever used my UP with 1x11 SRAM Force and it was perfect for predominantly off-road use.
