Way back in 2009, I reviewed the original Ibis Mojo. That bike opened my eyes to the performance of the DW-Link suspension platform and carbon fiber frames. Up until that time, carbon was a bit of a wildcard, but after that season, I was sold. Since then, I’ve swung a leg over several Ibis models — including the amazing Ripley 29er. Now, Ibis is re-inventing the Mojo as the Mojo 3 and it’s got everything you’d ever want in a modern trail bike.

The Ibis Mojo 3 in Corinthian Red.

Have a look at this list of specs:

  • Carbon fiber monocoque frame and swingarm with internal cable/dropper routing
  • 27.5 or 27.5+ compatible with the same frame, fork and wheelset
  • Boost 148/Boost 110 hub spacing
  • 130mm travel mated to 140mm fork
  • 1X or 2X compatible
  • 27.5+ compatible with Schwalbe or Maxxis 2.8”
  • Large and XL sizes feature bottle cage inside front triangle
  • Fox Factory FLOAT DPS shock with EVOL Sleeve and Kashima
  • ISCG 05 compatible (optional removable adapter)
  • 68 mm BSA threaded bottom bracket
  • Optional polycarbonate down tube cable guard
  • Post mount 160mm rear brake
  • Updated DW-Link (v5) features dual row angular contact bearings on the drive side
  • BB height at sag is the same with either tire
  • Frame weight 5.5 lbs with shock

Ibis is offering a bevy of build kits to suit even the pickiest of riders and a variety of budgets from $3999 to $8899. All frames feature the Fox Factory Float DPS Kashima shock with a RockShox PIKE RCT3 featuring 130mm rear and 140mm front wheel travel. And, as mentioned, you can run standard 27.5 tires or up to a 2.8″ 27.5+ tire — all with the same frame, fork and wheelset. I think the Mojo 3 just might be your new all-duty friend.
