In a limited run of just 60 bikes worldwide, OPEN Cycles & ENVE components collaborate again on the ultimate carbon gravel bike build. Starting with the Open U.P. that kickstarted the premium GravelPlus movement, a low-key white paint job gets balanced against the raw UD carbon finish of an Enve G Series carbon stem, handlebar & seatpost.

The whole Open X Enve collaboration is all about creating a unified look for the benchmark in premium gravel bikes. Looking to its roots in the gravel roads of the Swiss Alps the bike gets a light muted gray finish to contrast against the almost black of the UD carbon components.

Open & Enve say this contrast is meant to harken back to the light-colored alpine gravel roads set against the snow-capped peaks, alternating light & dark contrast of dry & wet gravel, asphalt, rock, snow, and mountain faces.

What do you get in the OPEN x ENVE limited collabo?

The limited edition bike kit includes the latest Open U.P. flat mount, 12mm axle gravel frameset (frame, U-turn fork, headset, seat clamp & Carbon-Ti thru-axles) in this exclusive special monochrome paintjob, plus an Enve finishing kit.

That Enve kit includes a G Series carbon Gravel Handlebar, carbon Road stem, and twin-bolt 27.2mm carbon seatpost.

The $3790 / 3790€ Open x Enve UP is available to order direct from Open with only 60 bikes available globally, and no obvious way to pick your desired bar width or stem length.

The Enve cockpit has a retail price of $890, plus the standard $3200 $2900 U.P. price, actually making this limited edition a pretty solid deal a wash on price, so at least the LTD paint job doesn’t cost extra.

Now you just have to figure out how to budget at least an extra $2800 for the latest matching G Series carbon wheelset before you even think about the cost of that new SRAM Red eTap AXS wireless groupset (hint: that’s gonna set you back another $3548 / 3618€, too! Maybe Force eTap AXS will be a more reasonable choice?)

    Hi everyone,

    The Open U.P. frameset actually costs $2900 and they’re awesome. The previous Open x Enve colaboration (purple/orange paint) came with a bunch of Enve stuff but was basically priced at retail once you do the math.

    If you get this new colab bike, you’re buying it for the painted to match cockpit, which IS cool.

    Also, stem length and bar width is something your LBS figures out for you and orders with the bike. Unless the bike is in stock, then they will have hopefully ordered a stem and bar proportionately sized to the frame. However all seatposts are 0° (or 0mm) offset, as that’s what the bike was designed around.

    In short, work with your LBS and things will be fine!

    ✌️

    Gerard really is a good guy….unlike many folks in the (former) land of Cervelo (P3. P3C, P4) it seems that more folks on a ‘gravel’ bike are looking more for a great bike than a brand and or logo (or M-Dot tattoo). While I am sure that they will find 60 oral surgeons or periodontists, I do not think that (and maybe by design) the masses will be out to get this bike, or one modeled after it.

    The Tri niche was small, but, the heavy weight was a red tattoo….I guess until such time that there is a Dirty Kanza tattoo……

    Too bad they don’t do a collaboration with schmolke or MCFK. At least then your hard earned dollars get you a quality cockpit. Not the China trash that Enve is pedaling. Best way to spot a sucker is look for Enve logos.
