Onix is a new British brand that's only just started to offer complete bike builds. The Azzuro is the top-level bike in the line-up; it's a carbon racing frame that you can have built up as you like from a whole range of different options.
First, though, some controversy... You probably know that most carbon frames are made in the Far East: China and Taiwan. Some are made in Italy, some elsewhere, but the vast majority come from the Far East.
If you're in the market for a good bike that's had a fair dollop of R&D money spent on its development Orbea's Onix may not be the first machine you would think of, but maybe it should be.
Baby brother to Orbea's range-topping Orca model the Onix benefits from the same SSN (Size Specific Nerve) technology – basically what that means is that each frame size has been tuned in terms of wall thickness, tube profile, and geometry to deliver a standard ride ride across the range.
