The new 2020 Shift i/O line is bred for pure riding performance with its longer-travel suspension platform and updated geometry. The Shift i/O models are a powerhouse on tough climbs and amazing downhill shredders.
No need to shuttle or wait in line at the chairlift to get another thrilling DH ride. Turn around at the bottom, head back up and get more riding time; The Shift i/O bikes will climb virtually anything in the "Boost" motor mode. Easily find your flow with our new geometry designed for effortless pedaling and an attack-ready position when the grade gets negative with a longer reach / wheelbase, shorter stem and slacker 65-degree head tube angle.
Featuring Shimano's power-assist E8000 mid-motor and our new internal 630Wh battery for longer rides, the Shift i/O is currently available in two models: the affordable i/O 5 and our flagship i/O 9 featuring XT Di2 electronic shifting.
The Shift i/O 7 will be available later on in 2021 with the new Shimano EP-800 motor featuring a higher torque at lower RPMs and a slightly lower noise level.
Agile and playful, the Shift i/O models are equipped with new Kenda 2.6" size tires, 1X drive trains and components sourced from the best brands on the planet including Shimano, Fox, Suntour, X-Fusion, Kenda and WTB.
