The OPEN WI.DE. complete bike is back featuring a SRAM Force / Eagle AXS drivetrain. Last year they sold out quickly and this batch is expected to go rather fast as well.
Check out some of the OPEN WI.DE. details below.
- The drivetrain is a Force/Eagle AXS combo. Light, reliable, 12-speed, electronic, what’s not to like? The maximum range with a 10-50 cassette is perfect for all the crazy trails you can take the WIDE onto, and the Force parts are very close to their Red siblings and a fair chunk less expensive. Some of you may know that I actually prefer a slightly tighter range (SRAM 11-50 or the ROTOR 11-46 cassette). But since you will replace the cassette eventually anyway (and if you love the WIDE as much as we do, you’ll rake up the miles quickly), you can always adjust down the line.
- For the wheels, We went with DT Swiss again but more importantly, we will now offer both 700c (29″) and 650b (27.5″) options.
- Stem, handlebar and seatpost all come from Easton. Nice parts, reasonably priced and not unimportant, the grey graphics match the frame perfectly. Bars feature a standard road drop.
- Then maybe the most important part: tires! Lots of options here, but now that Schwalbe has good availability of the new range of Schwalbe G-One Allround tires, it was a pretty easy choice for us. The 700c wheels get the 700x45c version, while the 650b gets the 27.5×2.25″ treads.
