With this "Frame Only" option, you can make your Exie to be everything you want it to be! Build options and your choice of components are available to create your dream bike.
The Exie was designed, built, and tested in Ibis' Santa Cruz manufacturing facility, powered by the warm California sunshine. This is the first carbon fiber full-suspension bike they have developed and manufactured in-house.
The Exie is the culmination of a seven-year project to rethink every aspect of the process. It is the lightest bike they have ever produced. The Exie is over a pound lighter than a Ripley, while not sacrificing pedaling efficiency or features in pursuing weight savings.
For thirty years, XC bikes have been designed around 70mm or longer stems. Ibis took a different approach: they cut 20mm off the stem and placed it back into the top tube length. This gives the Exie the confidence-inspiring balance of a trail bike, without sacrificing the immediate responsiveness you expect from a lightweight XC bike.
Whether you’re racing short track or on a multi day epic, the Exie’s seat tube angles allow you to harness your strongest muscles, while reducing any potential knee or wrist strain. They’ve also steepened the seat tube angles as the frames get larger, to allow riders with different inseams to achieve the same riding positions.
