Ibis Cycles (United States) - The Ibis Oso is the 2023 Design & Innovation Award winner in the E‑Mountain Bike category!
“With the new Oso, Ibis has finally made their debut in the eMTB segment. Not only is the Oso an eye-catcher with its unusual design, but it also convinces with its versatile frame platform and the unique geometry concept ensures a balanced ride for both short and tall riders. The chainstays, seat angles, and wheel sizes all grow with the frame sizes, providing consistent handling across all sizes while also suiting a wide range of riding styles. In addition, the short seat tube paired with a long-travel dropper post gives you plenty of freedom when choosing your frame size. But that’s not all: the rear suspension kinematics were designed to work well with both air and coil shocks, and you can change the rear travel by running a different stroke length, too. On the trail, the Oso delivers an excellent riding experience, both up and downhill, while the integrated front and rear light make it suitable for touring and even commuting – a true all-rounder!”
