The OPEN MIN.D California is an updated version of an already highly-touted frame. It is lighter and stiffer than ever, coming in at just 775 grams including the seatpost. The frame comes completely raw and if you choose to finish it, it will add about 30 grams or more. OPEN went all out with the MIN.D California to squeeze out every bit of performance possible.
To improve the overall performance of the OPEN MIN.D, the entire carbon layup process was changed. They used higher modulus carbon in targeted areas, used different production tools, and ran it through stiffness tests. In addition to an improvement in headtube and bottom bracket stiffness, this frame has a distributed stiffness increase throughout the frame, resulting in outstanding handling. With this new technology, the OPEN MIN.D California climbs and corners better than any of its predecessors.
When it comes to comfortable performance, no one does it better than OPEN. The OPEN MIN.D California has an unchanged geometry from the original. The integrated Seattube has a diameter of just 25mm, creating one of the most comfortable saddle experiences available. The tube and post blend uninterrupted, removing overlap between the two, making the compliance of the frame more effective. The seat to bar reach combines comfort and speed while also blending solid stability with quick agility. As one would expect from an OPEN bike, the MIN.D has the ability to veer off the road. With room for 32mm tires, there is no challenge too big for the OPEN MIN.D.
An evolution of the OPEN U-Turn Fork, this bike utilizes the R-Turn Fork. This fork takes away any need for an adapter when switching between 140mm and 160mm rotors, taking away unnecessary weight and adding to the control of the bike. The OPEN MIN.D also allows for internal cable routing, adding some extra aerodynamics and maintaining the sleek look of the frame. The OPEN MIN.D was already a high-level road bike, but OPEN decided to take its elite build to the next level with this California version. Incredibly low weight, excellent power, and unmatched comfort are all an option with the OPEN MIN.D California Frameset.
