The Open WI.DE is known for its ability to put down power efficiently and handle like a road bike, all while smoothing out the worst washboard gravel roads you can think of.
To give this particular WI.DE a fast and confidence inspiring feel, we opted for the wide, light and well damped Zipp 101 XPLR wheels. Zipp’s MOTO technology allow the 101 XPLR rims to give just enough to take the edge off of your local singletrack’s rocks and washboard sections to allow your tires to do their job of maintaining traction and control. As for the tires, we have spec’d the René Herse Oracle Ridge 700x48 tires which allow you to roll over most any trail obstacle while still allowing you to enjoy your paved segments as well.
The drivetrain is a Sram Force AXS Mullet one-by setup that pairs a Force 1 crank with a Sram XX1 Eagle AXS derailleur moving the Sram Eagle chain across a Sram 1275 Eagle 10-50 cassette for wireless, durable and dependable shifting no matter what the terrain. The Enve cockpit finishes things off with an Enve Carbon Road Stem paired to a gravel-friendly SES AR Road bar featuring flared drops and a semi-aero profile for increased speed, control and comfort. This bike is available today in-store and online at Above Category.
