MONSTER TIRES, NIMBLE RIDE
The OPEN U.P. inspired a generation of gravel bikes that could fit up to 2.1” tires. The WI.DE. (Winding Detours) can run even bigger tires while still fitting road cranks! The monster tires help you conquer the most extreme terrain, the performance geometry & narrow Q-factor keep you efficient while the steering geometry keeps you nimble.
WHAT IS THE WI.DE.?
The U.P.’s dropped chain-stay has become our most copied frame feature ever. No wonder, as it is a great way to create more tire clearance. The WI.DE. goes one better. By dropping both chain-stays, the mono-stay just behind the bottom bracket becomes a very efficient box structure. This increases BB stiffness, reduces weight and squeezes even more tire clearance out of the frame.
Finding ways to fit the biggest possible tire into a bike with road geometry and road cranks is one of our specialties. The WI.DE. does this thanks to the double-drop chain-stays mentioned above and a dedicated 1x frame design. Since most of our customers run 1x drivetrains, we can use the inner chainring space to move the chain-stay outward and increase tire clearance.
As a result, the WI.DE. comfortably accepts up to 2.4” tires in 650b (or 46mm on 700c wheels). Actual tire width depends on tire model and rim width, so measure instead of relying on the tire label.
SPEED & HANDLING
Most riders know that with the right bike geometry, even big tires can be fast. The WI.DE. takes this to the extreme. Of course a massive tire is not as fast as a pure road tire, but the delta is small enough that it doesn’t detract from the on-road fun. And off-road, there is no comparison. The WI.DE. retains its agility with anything from massive mountain tires to road tires.
“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 down-tube 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 down-tube. The WI.DE. is also designed to take a (strapless) top-tube bag as well as saddle, handlebar and frame bags for longer high-speed adventures.
