The reputation of the OPEN W.I.D.E frameset takes no prisoners. When it comes to fast riding across unpredictable off-road terrain, there aren't many that can hold a candle to it. The challenge on this build was to pick out a suitable collection of parts to match up to the frame's performance and resilience.
Velocity and ENVE parts also toe the perfect line between keeping things light and standing up to some punishment.
