In a 7-day race like the Absa Cape Epic 2021 the equipment is decisive in the final result, and once again in this race you can see the best mountain bikes for this modality. One of these is the Orbea Oiz OMX from Orbea Factory and in particular Ibon Zugasti's bike with the new colours for 2022.

Ibon Zugasti's Orbea Oiz OMX for the Cape Epic

The Shimano XTR groupset takes centre stage on this bike.
10-51 cassette and Shimano XTR mechanical shifter
The saddle is a fundamental component for a stage race. Ibon rides a Selle Italia SLR Superflow with anti-prostatic channel and good padding.
Orbea's Advanced Dynamics technology made it possible to design and develop a more efficient Oiz.
The bib number 13 is not very popular among cyclists and is often worn upside down, but Ibon says he likes it.
The colour mint green is always present in the Orbea Factory team.
In the new Factory design for 2022, Orbea combines green and black with white as the predominant colour.
