The U.P. combines road bike speed plus go-anywhere capabilities. The U.P.’s geometry lets you get out of town and reach the gravel/dirt/trails quickly (unlike a mountain bike). Space for big tires lets you tackle any route (unlike a road bike). And you can do that with one type of tire for everything.
