Exie X01 Eagle Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Ibis Exie X01 Eagle Mountain Bike
From crushing the competition on the World Cup cross-country race circuit to shredding our local high-alpine trails in Park City, the Ibis Exie X01 Eagle Mountain Bike is a short-travel bike with capabilities far beyond its looks. The carbon frame is hand-built in Santa Cruz, California, and clocks in under 4.5 pounds with a Fox Factory Float DPS rear shock installed. 100mm of DW-Link rear suspension delivers confidence-inspiring rear wheel traction all over the mountain and an incredibly supportive pedaling platform to provide the freedom to drop the hammer whenever we see the opportunity. The speed-focused geometry features a 67.2-degree headtube angle for razor-sharp handling and a steep, size-specific seat tube angle so that we can get into a powerful pedaling position right over the bottom bracket, no matter what our inseam is. Plus, there's room for two full-size water bottles in the front triangle, allowing us to ditch the pack and focus on the trail ahead.
The Exie X01 Eagle kit is built with high-end, high-performance components that are going to carry us through a full season of day-in, day-out racing, and training so that we can spend more time riding and less time wrenching. SRAM's ultra-reliable X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain shifts smoothly and precisely no matter how gnarly the conditions get and gives us a 520% gear range so that we can get up and down the mountain as efficiently as possible. The Fox Factory Float DPS rear shock is paired with a 120mm Fox Factory 34 Step Cast fork to help us crush through some of the gnarly terrain we've started to see on modern XC race courses, and a pair of Shimano SLX brakes gives us the ability to modulate our speed through highly technical sections.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
