See our first look of the Orbea Oiz OMX HERE.
While Orbea’s presence in the US is dominated by road bikes, mountain bikes make up the bulk of Orbea’s successes globally. Orbea remains a dominant force on the world cup mountain bike circuit, and the Orbea Oiz is at the front of that. Staying at the front of the pack requires evolution when possible, and this latest Orbea Oiz uses OMX that, according to Orbea, makes for the lightest full suspension cross country MTB around. This 2021 2021 Orbea Oiz M PRO TR takes full advantage of it.
Weight isn’t everything when it comes to full suspension cross country mountain bikes, but it sure makes a difference. The introduction of OMX carbon cuts 250g from the frameset to bring it to a claimed 1740g in size medium. This is thanks largely to more precise carbon layups that now feature size-specific levels of stiffness, but also partially due to 5mm shorter chainstays and use of a rear flat-mount brake caliper.
Other features include Orbea’s Squidlock, which controls the suspension between three shock settings, as well as an integrated dropper lever too. The cockpits feature a semi-integrated stem/spacer setup fit for an available computer mount. Dual bottle cage mounts remain, as does a chainstay protector – though that too is updated. Finally, it adds SRAM’s Universal Derailleur Hanger – making finding a replacement hanger easier than before.
Orbea’s MyO program makes an appearance here, offering more colors, more build options, and a number of new paint effects. Pair that to their classic XC geometry, low weight, and additional quickness, and the new Oiz promises to be faster than ever.
This Orbea mountain bike, the 2021 Orbea Oiz M PRO TR, features an OMX carbon frame and swingarm, Fox Factory DPS shock and Fox Factory 34 Stepcast suspension with 120mm travel each. A Shimano XTR/XT drivetrain with Raceface Next SL carbon cranks, OC dropper post, stem, and carbon handlebar, as well as DT Swiss XR 1650 wheels complete the package.
