Izimu

In its first revision since introduction, the World Cup winning Izimu is now even more capable than ever before. Increased BB drop, slacker head angle and stiff chassis add up to what is possibly the lightest, best performing DH bike for your money. Like we have always said, less really is more.

Simple Geometry Adjustment with XPI

Simple and effective geometry adjustment

In 2011 the XPI will be offered as a standard feature on the Izimu frames and will be available as an optional after-market upgrade for the 2011 180mm freeride frames.

XPI offers riders simple and effective geometry adjustments in a lightweight, neat and compact design. Using an offset eccentric at the heart of the design, the XPI pivot allows riders to fine-tune chainstay length [wheelbase], headtube angle and bottom bracket height within a wide range of usable parameters.

These adjustments can be made quickly and easily with the need of only two allen keys. The XPI pivot cap has four settings for base-level adjustments, with a standard fork setup.

Standard setting

Slacker head angle, lower BB, longer chainstay

Standard setting, shorter chainstay

Steeper head angle, higher BB, shorter chainstay

BB Height and wheelbase can be fine-tuned across the settings above
