One of our favourite bikes of all-time here at The Tri Store, the U.P. handles everything from road to off-road with ease. Buy two sets of wheels (700c and 650b) and you can forget n+1, this will just become your go-to bike for everything!
We took delivery of one of the first Unbeaten Path frames in the UK and now two of us here own them and ride them every day. We have great experience of the options for building the OPEN U.P. with different speciafications so check out our ready to ride builds or contact us for custom options.
The U.P. fits mountain bike tires up to 2.1” wide. But you can also fit a 40mm cross tire, or a 28mm road tire, or anything else in-between.
“100% hi-modulus carbon”, “aero-space grade”, etc. Useless – and hopefully false (we’ll get to that) – claims meant to impress you.
It’s not about high- or low-modulus, it’s about the right carbon in the right spot. And because the bike industry loves techie-sounding abbreviations, we’ll humor them and call it TRCinTRS™.
Fact: stiffer carbon is more brittle. Strategically placed ultra-high-modulus carbon is a good idea. Making the whole headtube out of it when you have big impact loads is not!
The best lay-up is not 100% of one modulus; it’s a blend. We use the highest modulus (stiffest) carbon of any bike manufacturer where we can, and tougher grades of carbon where we must. That’s how our frames are both light and durable.

Mine might be fluoro pink but I love my U.P. as it can be used for everything from a road ride through to proper off-road riding on the South Downs Way with two sets of wheels10/10
