What makes Oiz unique?

INTEGRATION

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.

I-Line

Bike design is moving towards integrated, clean solutions. One such trend is internal cables and the benefits are significant, including quieter, better protected cables and less chance of cable rub. Of course the visual improvements are important as well, we all want cleaner looking bikes right?

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.

FLAT MOUNT

The lowest profile brake mount provides the cleanest, stiffest and lightest caliper integration available.

ICR

Internal Cable Routing is carefully guided along the best path with no rub or rattle, and is optimized for both traditional and electronic shifting systems.

OC COCKPIT

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.

CHAIN SECURITY

Even a perfectly adjusted derailleur can drop a chain over rough terrain or during a wheel change. With Chain Security, you’ll have the added peace of mind knowing your chain isn’t going to end up around your bottom bracket shell.

TWO BOTTLES

One of the simplest features of of the new Oiz was one of the most complex to accomplish - the MD, LG and XL frames are all equipped with two bottle mounts inside the front triangle. The additional room made available by the Inside Line cable routing puts extra water at your fingertips instead of in your pocket or on your back.

MATERIALS

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?

INTEGRATION

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.

2080GR (MEDIUM) WITH SHOCK

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.

HIGH POLISH

Because they share the name Oiz, the aluminum frames receive the same level of design attention as the carbon - The tubes are butted and hydroformed with smooth, polished welds to match the dramatic look of the monocoque frame.

 

FIBERLINK

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.

GEOMETRY

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.

WHEELS

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.

Well we've made wheels too – they're top quality OMR carbon with industry-leading DT hubs and superlight Sapim j-bend spokes.

Total weight: 1530gr

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.

ORBEA LIFETIME WARRANTY AND KEEP ON ROLLING PROGRAM

Our continuous and daily efforts to deliver the highest quality products allows us to offer extra complementary coverage to the legal warranty through our Keep On Rolling program.

Suspension

ADVANCED DYNAMICS

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.

DATA COLLECTION

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.

DESIGN

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.

PROTOTYPING

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 PERFORMANCE

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.

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.

The Advanced Dynamics suspension of the 100mm Oiz XC and 120mm Oiz TR delivers on both fronts.

TWO STROKE

What could possibly be as cool as the world’s most efficient, sleek and sophisticated 100mm XC bike? The same bike in 120mm. Because there are two stroke lengths offered in the same overall shock length, Oiz is available in two configurations - a 100mm travel World Cup ruler, and a 120mm TR trail slayer. The TR version uses a 120mm fork and makes a few changes to bigger tires and a slightly tougher spec. But don’t worry, this big brother gives up nothing in a race to the top of the hill.

UFO

With this innovation, we do away with the pivot near the rear axle to make a lighter, simpler bike that requires less maintenance. UFO bikes are laterally stiffer for precision and acceleration like you’ve never felt in a full suspension bike.

The secret lies in the shape and materials. When properly handled, carbon can bend for millions of cycles. We placed the fibers and shaped the seatstays in such a way that they are allowed to flex without deformation approaching a critical point. This technology, which has been long in use in F1 cars, delivers unrivaled weight-stiffness balance.

Squidlock remote lock

A three-position suspention lockout lever that is compact, lightweight and integrates a dropper post control in the bar clamp for the cleanest cockpit available.

FRAME PROTECTION

Custom co-moulded plastic protectors shield the frame from impacts and drivetrain noise.

UDH HANGER

A Universal Derailleur Hanger will eventually make finding a replacement a snap, as more and more bikes adopt this simple technology.

QUALITY BEARINGS

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:
