Watching the open O-1.0 roll by is like seeing a Stealth Bomber fly overhead. You marvel at the visual experience, sure, but it's the knowledge that you're witnessing one of the most technologically advanced machines of its kind in action that really captivates you. Gerard Vroomen, Andy Kessler, and the team at open didn't set out to dabble in the status quo, which required unacceptable trade-offs: strength for low weight, or stiffness for ride quality. Rather, they set out to break the mold. To accomplish that goal, they challenged conventional wisdom and adopted the mantra that every aspect of the modern hardtail 29er frame could be improved. The result of this relentless pursuit is the O-1.0.
