WHAT MAKES OIZ UNIQUE?

TECHNOLOGIES

ORBEA MONOCOQUE CARBON

We use the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible – A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate in the saddle.

LIGHTNESS

Optimized layups and fewer frame pieces reduces weight. Optimum carbon compaction allows us to use less material.

STIFFNESS

Single uniform structures are better optimized to resist deflection. Carbon structures are tuned to deliver maximum stiffness without adding weight.

RIDE QUALITY

Running continuous fibers through and around intersections allows fine-tuning of structures for the best blend of comfort and rigidity.

RELIABILITY

Eliminating bonded areas increases strength. The lifetime warranty assures your Orbea will be a long-time companion.

FULL CARBON

Engineering a frame that uses as much carbon as possible of course saves weight but it also contributes to the sophistication and refinement of each Orbea.

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.

An aluminum version of the link is also available on some models, adding grams but not sacrificing stiffness or looks.

KEY POINTS

OMX Carbon front and rear

430mm Chainstay

Flat mount

OMR

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

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.

In addition to the aesthetic improvement, there is also an important functional advantage to working and smoothing the welds since these junctions are the highest stress points of the frame. The extra time associated with producing these frames means that only our most exclusive Oiz and Occam hydroformed frames are manufactured this way. Hours of additional hand work and bead blasting ensure a premium product that looks and performs like no other.

DESIGN INTEGRATION

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.

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.

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.

SQUIDLOCK

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

INSIDE LINE

It’s the quickest way around the competition – and the optimal route for control cables racing to your fingertips. The proprietary rear shock lockout is completely invisible, hiding from mud and staying out of your way as you grab a water bottle. Controls are accessible and easy to use, creating the smoothest and sexiest shock mounting on the market. It’s a small detail, but when your bike is optimized, customized and weaponized, obsession over details can’t be trivialized.

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.

XC SUSPENSIONS

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

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.

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.

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 precision 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.

• HEAD ANGLE – 68º • SEAT ANGLE – 74.5º • REACH – 435mm MEDIUM

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.

SPECIFICATIONS

OIZ FEATURES

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 senap, as more and more bikes adopt this simple technology.

PF92

A wide press-fit shell ensure optimal stiffness and larger bearings with better seals offer increased durability.

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:

WHO IS OIZ FOR?

Oiz is designed for fast, experienced riders who demand a superlight, efficient and reliable suspension bike for technical XC courses and high performance cross country riding.

The TR version is perfect for XC Marathon and fast Trail riders who love the weight and efficiency of a pure XC bike and don’t see themselves riding the longer-travel Occam.

THE BEST XC PLATFORM

What makes up the DNA of a top Cross Country machine? It’s a combination of chassis, suspension and geometry that are adapted to aggressive riding at top speed and full exertion. None of these things by itself makes the best bike, it’s only by checking ALL these boxes that we are satisfied, and the only way you can fall in love with your bike when it helps you cross the line first, top a rooted climb ahead of your friends, saves you from a gruesome get-off, or garners a wolf whistle in the parking lot after a ride. Oiz does these things every day.

THE ORBEA XC FAMILY

COMPLEMENTARY USES
Few companies offer a more complete range of cross country weapons than Orbea’s XC Family, with Alma hardtail and Oiz full suspension models for World Cup racers, enthusiasts and first-timers alike. Fully rigid, front suspension or full suspension in 100 or 120mm configurations mean there is an exceptional Orbea XC bike for precisely every rider and every trail.
