New Yeti-inspired gravel bike for the turquoise fanboys

Yeti and Open are very different brands, yet both boutique brands share a design philosophy focused on creating bikes the owners and staff want to ride.

To celebrate their shared vision, Open is releasing a limited edition Open U.P. frameset in Yeti’s signature turquoise.

“The beauty of working with Open is while we create radically different products, we do it with the same uncompromised focus and for the consumer who demands the best,” said Yeti CEO Chris Conroy.

“It was an easy choice to work with Open because we knew the product would meet our standards and the standards of our Yeti Freaks," Conroy added.

This Yeti-inspired gravel frameset is available for pre-order from Open dealers and directly from Open. Pricing is set at $3,200 / £2,900 / AU$ TBC. Open expects to begin shipping these frames at the end of December.

If you’re a Yeti fanboy, or just appreciate turquoise bikes, you’d better act fast; only 50 of these limited edition framesets are available.
