A whole new sport demands a whole new bike. Built from the ground up to deliver a new level of smooth, fast, and durable performance, the full-carbon-fiber Oso features our first-ever upper-link suspension dw-link platform. It stacks 155mm of rear travel with 170mm up front and is powered by a Bosch Performance line CX motor.
The Oso doesn’t just lean into enduro territory. It drops in, elbows out and goggles down. The long wheelbase, roomy cockpit and slack 64-degree head angle are designed for optimal racing performance. And its size-specific seat angles allow riders of any height to bang out climbs in comfort without wasting a watt.
Size specific chainstays and wheel configuration
Large and extra large Oso frames are built around matching 29-inch wheels, while small and medium frames get the mixed-wheel treatment and shorter chainstays. That keeps the Oso from ever feeling unwieldy. In fact, it’s pretty damn wieldy.
The Bosch Performance line CX has a quiet, powerful 85 NM drive unit, which offers the most natural-feeling acceleration since the invention of gravity. On top of that, you get Bosch’s two-year warranty, a network of 2,400 dealers across the U.S., UL safety-certified batteries, and its carbon-neutral operations. So, in case you were wondering, that’s why we went with Bosch.
With a deep 750wh battery on sizes medium thru XL and a 625wh battery on the small, the Oso is built to go big and still have enough juice left to go home.
Upper link suspension
It may look a little different, but the Oso’s Upper Link suspension is still dw-link. That means it packs all the traction and efficiency you’d expect from an Ibis, but with a more supportive leverage curve to keep up with all the demands of a full-powered e-bike.
If it’s our fault, we’ll fix it. Simple as that.
