We love OPEN's bikes, the U.P., the U.P.P.E.R, the WI.DE. Also because of the company philosophy: We work hard to stay small, and their design claim of no gimmicks. We think with their road racing bike they have implemented these requirements more uncompromisingly than ever before: MINimal Design, or MIN.D for short:
Classic in aesthetics thanks to slim tubes, radical in implementation with integrated seatpost. Despite the low weight, the MIN.D shows an incredibly direct power transmission. But then comes the ride comfort, on the one hand thanks to up to 32mm wide tires. But mainly thanks to the most controversial feature, the integrated seatpost: the seat tube measures only 25mm in diameter. And since there is no seatpost in the seat tube, which again significantly stiffens the system, this design offers the highest possible comfort in the saddle. Incomparable!
