Ozonys were one of the first of the large trials brands to dip their toe into the 24” wave. Bruno Arnold and his team quickly realised that 24” wasn’t just a passing craze and decided to cater for those riders who were looking for a frame that would allow them to borrow tricks from BMX but who also wanted to remain faithful to their trials roots, perhaps changing their style a bit and mixing 20” and 26” moves. Sphère Bike, Bruno’s shop, were one of the first shops to introduce 24” bikes to France, with models such as the famous Inspired 4play or the Because Street and Trial frames.

And lets not forget (although it’s been a long time coming so you’d be forgiven if you had) that Ozonys have been working for several months on their own 24” street model and also a ‘pure’ trials 24”! The street model has been developed in collaboration with the terrible twosome of French street trials, Yohan and Thomas Triboulat, who never cease to amaze us with their street videos (Reason to be II); it is currently called the “King & Dunce”, is a bike for those who prefer streets to sections and will be available in June. The second bike, currently called the “Unruly” should be out in July and previews can be seen on the Ozonys homepage.

To whet our appetites, the Triboulat brothers have sent us two teasers with some recent footage of them riding their prototype frames.




A few photos of Thomas on his prototype…
