The Ozonys Curves, which have been tested throughout this season all over the world by top riders Guillaume Dunand, Bruno Arnold, Théau Courtès and Pablo Bravo, arrived in France a few days ago! In case you’d forgotten, here’s a little reminder of the features of this new bike at the very top of the Ozonys range... They have a number of CNC’d pieces, the headtubes and bottom brackets have been lightened, the tube thicknesses have been calculated to optimise strength and weight, and they have a CNC booster as featured on the Cannibal. The 26 also has an adjustable geometry and the new Ozonys chain tensioner fixed to the chainstay, giving optimum tension and protection. Like the Cannibals, the Curves have a super-classy paint job (blue for the 26" and red for the 20"), giving them a factory look that will make you want to get out and devour section after section! But what sets the Curve apart from the Cannibal and from the rest of the current market? The curved form from which it takes its name and which is no mere exercise in style! The two main tubes join to form a single tube at the front end, effectively making it a moncoque frame! The main tube is in fact made up of two tubes, with a section that has been laser-cut off. If you were to see a cross-section it would look like a figure of eight, although with no material in the middle. This shape optimises the stiffness and weight of the front end.

The official inauguration of the Curves took place this Saturday at Buthiers. The Tribal Zine staff were not far away, testing some bikes just a stone’s throw away. We went over to have a look at the new bikes in the afternoon... and we liked what we saw! The Curve 26 has been developed further and is now essentially a monocoque frame, which gives it an incredible stiffness and a very unusual look. PNG - 215.7 kb The 2010 Ozonys range is definitely a success - it is wide, varied, classy and consistently good! We’ve already shown you a few photos of Bruno Arnold’s Curve 26 taken at the inauguration ride (The Curves have arrived!), now Bruno has sent us some studio photos of his bike!
