The Exie is a World-Cup capable cross-country race bike that flat out shreds. With a sub 2,000g frame weight and dw-link suspension, it offers a stunning combination of pedaling efficiency and downhill performance. Ibis designed, built, and tested it in their Santa Cruz factory, which is powered by the warm California sunshine.
Ibis builds each Exie in their Northern California factory. This gives them the utmost control, which enables them to hit remarkable frame strength, stiffness, and weight targets for this frame.
Whether you’re racing short track or on a multi day epic, the Exie’s seat tube angles allows you to harness your strongest muscles, while reducing any potential knee or wrist strain. We’ve also steepened the seat tube angles as the frames get larger, to allow riders with different inseams to achieve the same riding positions.
Don’t squander a single watt. The dw-link suspension platform offers incredible climbing efficiency and traction along with plush, downhill-crushing goodness.
Ibis uses bushings where it makes sense and bearings where it doesn’t. The IGUS bushings in the lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance free. They’ve also added features like a threaded bottom bracket to help make any future maintenance easy.
Internal cable routing doesn’t have to be a pain. They have added internal tubes to their tubes, no picksets, flashlights, or swear words required.
You can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, you’re not limited by width.
The Exie has clearance for two water bottles inside the front triangle on every size frame.
