The Exie USA is a World Cup-capable cross-country race bike that flat-out shreds. With a sub 2,000g frame weight and dw-link suspension, it offers a stunning combination of pedaling efficiency and downhill performance. We designed, built, and tested it in our Santa Cruz factory, which is powered by the warm California sunshine.
Jenny Rissveds won the 2023 Lenzerheide XCC World Cup Cross Country Event on the Ibis Exie, a bike we quite literally made in our own backyard here in Northern California!
BUILT BY US
We build each Exie USA in our Northern California factory. This gives us the utmost control, which enables us to hit remarkable frame strength, stiffness, and weight targets for this frame.
SIZE-SPECIFIC SEAT ANGLES
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. We've also steepened the seat tube angles as the frames get larger, to allow riders with different inseams to achieve the same riding positions.
Don't squander a single watt. Our dw-link suspension platform offers incredible climbing efficiency and traction along with plush, downhill-crushing goodness.
RIDE MORE, WRENCH LESS
We use bushings where it makes sense and bearings where it doesn't. The IGUS bushings in our lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance free. We've also added features like a threaded bottom bracket to help make any future maintenance easy.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
Internal cable routing doesn't have to be a pain. We've added internal tubes to our tubes, no picksets, flashlights, or swear words are required.
2.4" TIRE CLEARANCE
You can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, you're not limited by width.
2X BOTTLE CLEARANCE
The Exie USA has clearance for two water bottles inside the front triangle on every size frame.

Drop the hammer, not your chain.
