Trail. A magical word for every mountain biker – and so many possibilities. A short lap behind the house, an enduro trail in the bike park, the stairway to heaven high up in the mountains, or maybe a quick trip to the ice-cream parlor: all trails. And your bike needs to work everywhere. This requires a stiff carbon frame, an efficient but still comfortable rear end, low weight and room for a water bottle, as well as reliable components, slack angles and a dash of rowdiness.
You don’t live close to Les Gets? Your trails are not full of 15-meter gaps – but 15000 roots, natural berms and rocks that want you to come out and play? When you cross the Alps, you’re still hunting for those trail endorphins? We made a bike just for you. Yes, we did! For the design, we let ourselves be inspired by the deadly combination of beauty, efficiency and (conceptual) sharpness of the Japanese Katana sword.
For the rear end, we’ve opted for a four-link design that puts 130mm of tight and progressive travel in your greedy little hands. Less travel for more trails, more fun, and more possibilities? A trail bike with YT DNA? IZZO!
The IZZO is the first trail bike, I really get along with! It is super light and extremely playful. A true YT! The IZZO is my new daily bike choice for home trails, long tours and quick afterwork rides!
Internal Cable Routing
For optimal protection, all cables are almost completely routed through the frame. Integrated cable ports and a single cable clamp hidden under the rear linkage help create a super clean look. Uninterrupted internal tubes and the single clamp system provide for easy cable replacement.
Race-Specific Advanced Sealing Concept, Axial Lip-Seal (RASCAL)
Extra seals protect the high-quality, double-sealed full complement bearings to keep water and dirt out and help prolong the service life of your bike.
With the Flip Chip on the lower shock mount you can quickly and easily adapt the geometry to changing terrain and your riding style. In the low position you are equipped with a more aggressive steering angle and a full BB drop for fast, rough terrain. In the high position you adjust the steering and seat angle by 0. 5° steeper and lift the bottom bracket by 8 mm. The lower BB Drop gives you more ground clearance in tight quarters and you have even more fun uphill.
Made from super-tough and wear-resistant PA 66, the downtube protector is bolted on and can be easily replaced. It is designed to wrap around the bottom bracket and thus provide extra protection for the side walls of the downtube from impacts and scratches. Additionally, the rubber chain stay and seat stay guards help prevent unwanted noise from the drivetrain
Single sides hardware access
MOB-Pit approved: the suspension linkage and rear triangle hardware can be installed and removed from one single side, which makes working on the bike easier and faster and gives the bike a cleaner look.
All carbon frame
Our carbon frames are light, extremely stiff and beautifully shaped. By placing carbon fibers of different resistance in the layup we can construct imposing tube cross-sections with variable wall thickness while keeping the weight low and optimizing the frame stiffness.
