Open’s carbon U.P. gravel frameset introduced some new concepts to the burgeoning gravel-bike world back in 2015. For 2018, the frame received a few tweaks, including flat-mount disc brakes and a 70g weight reduction.
On the front end, the U-Turn fork saw a weight saving of 65g and a 12x100mm thru-axle.

Omata’s take on a cycling computer falls in line with Open’s thinking on technology, saying: “We’re a bit leery about ‘over-technologizing’ cycling. We don’t need a power meter, a GPS that also analyzes our hematocrit or 2×14 electro-hydraulic shifting. We just want to ride.”
