What makes Oiz unique?
ORBEA INNOVATION - ALWAYS STRIVING FOR PERFECTION
We live and breathe the bikes we make and are proud of every one of them. Innovation is the difference between participating and leading and at Orbea only excellence is good enough. Each bike that leaves our factory is the result of our passion, design skill and manufacturing expertise.
The best materials are applied to innovative designs in the hands of dedicated engineers, making the result truly exceptional
Some of this happens at a computer or in a testing lab, a lot of it on the road or mountain and during the design process prototypes are passed around, fought over and above all ridden. It’s all crucial for improvement and fundamental to the pride we take in our industry-leading bicycles.
The shock lock-out cable takes the inside line all the way to the remote lever, meaning less cable, less dirt, and less friction. It’s a small detail, but when your bike is this close to perfect, we are allowed to obsess over the details.
European and American patents, EP3587234 and US11077913, protect the "Inside Line" design and its unique and innovative characteristics.
The Orbea XC Family sports an all-new integrated look with a completely unique OC headset/spacer/stem design. The system includes an optional computer mount that is compatible with all major brands using standard adapters. OC component collaboration is a detail that completes the high-end feel of our modern XC bikes.
OMX CARBON FRAME
The new OMX frame is lighter, a bit stiffer and more nimble with 5mm shorter stays. If what you’re after is an absolute XC Race experience, OMX will deliver.
HOW DID WE ACHIEVE A 250G WEIGHT SAVINGS WHEN OIZ WAS ALREADY AMONG THE LIGHTEST FRAME/SHOCK COMBINATIONS AVAILABLE?
OMR CARBON FRAME
For riders seeking stability and a bit more comfort for longer rides or marathon XC adventures, the OMR frame is the best choice.
HYDROFORMED ALUMINUM FRAME
We manipulate the shapes and wall-thickness of our aluminum tubing to increase strength and resistance to unwanted flex. Many of the tubes are butted to save weight in the middle of the tubes, away from the stress of the joints and the weld zones. Using aluminum technologies as advanced as our carbon manufacturing ensures our aluminum bikes are never second-best.
In the quest for stiffness and clean lines, we developed the long-fiber injected Fiberlink. The perfect blend of low weight and impressive rigidity, Fiberlink integrates seamlessly with the shapes of Oiz and the seat tube.
ORBEA WORLD CUP GEOMETRY
Oiz’s World Cup Geometry is born from years of designing world-class XC bikes. The position is aggressive, comfortable and fast. Unlike trail geometry that sacrifices some precison for endurance, XC geometry is precise and intuitive for maximum power transfer. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes, maximizing power by increasing efficiency.
OMX VS OMR
OIZ OMX - 430MM CHAINSTAY
Super-short rear end for explosive acceleration, maneuverability and steep climb traction.
OIZ OMR - 435MM CHAINSTAY
Designed with high speed stability, confident handling and comfort in mind - perfect for fast XC and Marathon riding.
OC XC TEAM
Some carbon rims take design inspiration from whales and the aerodynamic skin of golf balls. Others claim to have an exotic military ballistic layer or engineering from the world of Supercross.
Check out the new OC wheels on our line of 2022 XC bikes. Our sales department would love if we had developed a secret wheel technology from satellites, but they're just light and fast.
Advanced Dynamics transforms virtual designs into real, highly-refined machines – Bikes for demanding riders that are faster, more fun to ride and far beyond ordinary.
Our large suspension “library” is updated with new designs and data obtained from our suspension partners. This is detailed stuff, not just marketing descriptions of a new damper or spring curve.
Our Advanced Dynamics software is used to optimize geometry, linkage and pivot locations to obtain the suspension characteristics we are looking for, depending on how the bike will be used.
When we start test-riding prototypes, we are working out tiny details instead of crossing our fingers and hoping the bike will largely perform as we hoped. Starting at 90% means we get closer to perfection.
XC suspension is different from that of a trail bike. Racers want suspension that is virtually unnoticed until it is needed, and no energy should be wasted when the trail turns upward. But balancing efficiency with control is a difficult task. Riders will frequently inflate their rear shock until there is very little sag for excellent support under power, but they still need a design that soaks up rough terrain and allows full travel when needed.

Custom co-moulded plastic protectors shield the frame from impacts and drivetrain noise.
A Universal Derailleur Hanger will eventually make finding a replacement a snap, as more and more bikes adopt this simple technology.
Enduro-brand sealed bearings replace shock bushings and are used throughout for ultimate suspension performance.
OIZ MODEL COMPARISON
OMX carbon joins OMR and hydroformed aluminum to offer many models across a large price spread. At the top-end we find the OMX frame paired with the svelte Fiberlink suspension linkage that yields the lowest frame weight. In the middle of the range we have combined the OMR frame with the alloy suspension link of the hydroformed Oiz. Finally we offer Hydroformed, high-polish aluminum Oiz to bring the same XC performance to even more riders. Here is a breakdown of frames and options:
DESIGN YOUR RIDE
All Oiz models offer Orbea´s MyO component options. Switching a wheelset, gearing or other components is possible through the ordering process, so your Oiz arrives at the dealer in the exact configuration you desire.
With Oiz we offer the full MyO program has allowed riders to personalize their Orbeas to an extent that is unique in the industry. Customize the paint of your Oiz for free. Say “no” to the standard Bike In A Box offered by our competitors.
