Ibis Mojo HD Hype

by 17

Here’s the schpiel from the Ibis guys in full…

Happy New Year! And we mean it when we say happy. Because we have news and answers for you.

First we’re going to give you two answers to the most asked questions of the second half of 2009.

Answer Number One: March 2010
Answer Number Two: $2,399

So there you have it, the Mojo HD is going to ship in March (of this year!) and the frame with rear shock will cost $2,399 (US MSRP).

And here’s what it’s going to look like (at least the white one will look like this):

MojoHD-SideViewL600

Yesterday we leaked a little bit of information about the “HD” via our website. You can see it here, it’s a travelogue of all the places this first production frame has gone (or is about to go).

We’ve published an extremely informational web page for the HD. Here’s the URL: http://www.ibiscycles.com/mountain/mojohd

Information about kits, specs, pricing, and photos of the final frame graphics are all loaded onto our website, so you might as well head over to the aforementioned HD page and explore the page and its links.

At this time, the production schedule looks like this: we are planning a pilot production run late this month and the first real production run in late February. This means that the first production shipments should leave Santa Cruz by mid-March. Supply will be tight in the next couple of months as we both ramp up production and fill backorders. Remember, not only do we ship to a lot of customers here in the US of A, we’re also “big in Japan”. Well, ok we’re actually not that big in Japan, but we do have distributors in about 33 countries.

There are a couple more things we’d like to leave you with today…

IBIS/MRP HD BASH GUARD

MojoHD-Chainguide300

We expect quite a few people will run their HD as a single chainring machine. To complement that, our engineering staff worked with MRP and Brian Lopes to develop a bash guard specifically for the HD. It bolts to the front of the robust Mojo lower link. The bash guard is a modified version of MRP’s popular and excellent G2 Guide. We’ll have them available in the webstore by the time the first HD’s are delivered.

NEW IBIS HD FIDDY FIVE GLOVES

Gloves300

To go along with your new Mojo HD, we’ve also got some new Ibis/Oakley/BL55 riding gloves. The graphics on the glove will go well with the your new HD. Unlike the HD though, you can buy the gloves right here in the Ibis store.
They’re super comfy, have a nice non irritating cuffless design, a one piece palm and are adorned with logos on both sides, including the Ibis head tube logo bird on the palm. They’ve also got a nice little terry nose wipe on the thumb. Oh, and they breath and stretch–in all the right places.

  1. oh dear this may lead to a divorce!!!!!!!!!!!! guess price in uk will be massive then!

  2. Blimey, even for a full suss, that’s a “right” looking frame.

  3. I think I need a lie down.

  4. I think they look nice in photos, but then look clumsy in the flesh. Just my opinion though.

  5. Graphics remind me of some lapierres

  6. I really really like that! Would be too scared to give it a good thrashing though.

  7. I really really like that! Would be too scared to give it a good thrashing though.

    why?

  8. why…..
    having seen my mates expression when he got a big ding in his canondale moto’s carbon downtube at the mega i can see what you mean but its still going strong

    if hammerschmidt takes off will they have to redesign the suspension to accept it?
    and are they just being honest where a lot of other companies whack on a hammerschmidt without telling you it will mess up the suspension

  9. got my nice new mojo SL sitting in the loft awaiting better weather before i build it up, then they drop this on the table. if lopes can throw it around the mountains i think it will be ok in my hands

  10. WHY HAVE YOU GOT AN IBIS MOJO SL IN THE LOFT! Get out and ride it fool!

  11. That looks lovely – want!

  12. Showerman – please do the SL justice & build it up sooner rather than later.

  13. Looks good…think the 140mm version is more than enough for my riding though. Bank balance too…

  14. Cracking looking bike wpuldn’t mind a demo if any of you singletrack team want to invite me down 😉
    I love my mojo .. mojo in the loft !! get out and ride.

  15. i think this is the third carbon frame ive seen which is super tough but comes with or has an available separate piece downtube protector.
