BOTM: WI.DE. FORCE/EAGLE AXS ENVE COMPLETE BIKE - PART- 1

Andy Kessler - 20-Aug-2021
We have been asked many times if we can upgrade our best selling WI.DE. Force/Eagle complete bike with carbon wheels. Now we can! We have a new complete bike coming with full ENVE specifications and the legendary SRAM Mullet drivetrain.



This bike represents the ultimate components for building a "go anywhere" gravel/dirt/singletrack/asphalt machine.

SRAM Force AXS drivetrain, Eagle XX1 AXS rear derailleur, ENVE cockpit, seatpost and ENVE AG 25 or 28 wheels with Industry 9 hubs.

Can it get any better ? Ok, one important thing to mention: You can preorder now trough our webshop or through our good OPEN partners but shipment will be end of October.

Check out the gallery

If you want to know about specs and prices - that you can find in the "how to buy" section, which kind of makes my next blogs obsolete...but I will still do them.

How do I know what size bike I need? The medium and large both overlap my physical conformation.
Please advise; I am very interested in the bike.

Hi there! How’s that the weight of the Enve build is the same than the Easton/ DT Swiss build if just the wheels are one kg lighter? Or is it a mistake? Thanks!

Hi Franc, where you are right you are right. But the wheels are not 1kg lighter that would be a bit too much. Correct weights are 8.2 and 8.5 for this one

Hi gerrard,
I am interested in buyingg open wide
I am 183 cm
I ride a colnago c60 in a size 52s
I also have an Ibis Hakka size 53 which I find too short in the reach
I have relatively short legs compared to torso
I have a saddle height 73.2 from the middle of the crank
I have a 110mm stem

I am concerned the large in the open will leave too little seat post but have good reach
I am concerned the medium may haver too little reach

Dear James, You are a size Large for sure. Why I know that I have the exactly same measures as you. I ride with a 90 stem so probably for you 90 or 100 is fine. But Large it is. Send me a mail and I send you a picture how my bikes look

Hi There, as a gravel bike do you have any preference over the up or the wide?

Hi Peter, Its like in the plane. The choice is chicken or beef? Seriously I think it depends on the mix road/offroad. I would say if you ride more than 60% offroad then for sure the WIDE. But both are obviously great bikes...

Probably a hard question to answer, but any updates on when you might have complete bikes back in stock?
