Open Cycle teams up with Omata

Collaborating with GPS cycling chronograph brand Omata, bike brand Open has released a limited edition run of just 20 Omata x Open U.P bikes


With just two bikes in its entire collection, boutique bike brand Open already has some impressive collaborations under its belt in the form of ENVE wheels and Rapha, and now adds the quirky cycling GPS brand Omata to its lineup of exclusive partners.

Open, the Swiss-based company set up by Gerard Vroomen, co-founder of Cervélo, and Andy Kessler, former CEO of BMC who met Vroomen when he became international sales director at Cervélo, opened its doors in 2012 and makes just two models — the Open ONE+ — an XC racing mountain bike with a sub-900g frame — and the Open U.P, an innovative do-it-all machine with a 1,150g frame.
