THE HIGHEST-CAPABILITY CARBON ADVENTURE BIKE
The new Horizon can handle any road surface — even when the road runs out. Its perfectly balanced Progressive Geometry, by Opus, delivers supreme comfort and speed on road rides. Yet supplies the stability and confidence you need on high-adventure rides over dirt and gravel. Accommodating everything from light road slicks to mud-friendly wide knobbies, and featuring rack, bottle and fenders mounts, the Horizon is truly one bike that does it all.

Shimano 105 11-speed gruppo with FSA adventure crank
Shimano Flat Mount hydraulic disc brakes
Extra-wide 42-mm tire clearance
Also available as a frameset

A mix of high modulus and high resistance carbons for the optimum balance of light weight, comfort, performance and durability.

Every bike should have an optimal gear range based on the type of terrain it’s designed for and the speeds at which it’s ridden. Unfortunately, the actual gear range you get rarely conforms to the optimal.

Too many bikes come with a one-size-fits-all gear selection. Typically, the top gears are too high for most riders, which means two things: You’re not getting the full benefit of all the gears you’ve paid for. And, because the range is unnecessarily wide, between-gear jumps are both unpleasant and inefficient.

At Opus, Optimal Gearing means tailoring each bike’s gear range to its intended use so you benefit from the maximum number of useable gears. In many cases we offer more useable gears on our drivetrains than other bikes boasting a higher number of total gears. How do we do that? By keeping the range specific to the needs of a particular bike, so gear spacing is tighter. That way, you never lose your rhythm when shifting up or down.

Wherever possible, we also use smaller front chain-rings, enabling us to specify smaller rear cogs and a shorter chain. Result? Dramatically lower bike weight at no additional cost.

Optimal Gearing from Opus. For a lighter, easier shifting, more efficient and more fun bike to ride.

At Opus, we love riding our bikes as much as you do. So we know that having the right size bike to fit your body is essential to enjoying long road rides. That’s why we’ve developped our own Progressive Geometry for Opus road endurance bikes. An even progression between sizes eliminates gaps and yields a wide range of possibilities for a custom-like fit. This means every rider can be precisely fitted, from a race-specific to a comfortable gran-fondo ready position.   

 

HANDLING

POSITIONNING

Tight clustering enables a huge range of stack choice for any given reach. Practically speaking, this means up to 8cm, so riders can choose from aggressive racer to upright endurance position and everything in between all within the same model.
