Sharp like a katana sword, agile and just plain fast. The IZZO is a true everyday mountain bike with the usual YT DNA. A short travel trail bike that doesn't want to be an all mountain but a super light tool for classic trail riding. No matter whether you're headed out for a multi-day trip or just an after-work loop. The IZZO sets the standards. It's so!
#IZZO // THE STORY BEHIND
To introduce our first short-travel trail bike, we wanted to once again present something out of left field, in typical YT fashion. No Hollywood actors this time, but still something revolutionary. The task at hand was to showcase the characteristics of the product without actually using the bike or even featuring the subject of mountain biking at all.
Since we were inspired by the Katana sword already during the development of the bike, and because we’ve always been fascinated by this era of Japanese culture, it was a logical step to arrive at the anime genre.
