It’s probably the worst kept secret this year, having been raced by both Anne Caroline Chausson and Valentina Macheda on the Enduro World Series circuit, but Ibis has finally announced the latest version of its Mojo HD, known as the HD3.
The new bike has been re-designed from the ground up, sharing a lot of design influences with the Ripley.
US prices range from $2,900 for the bare frame with a Fox Kashima CTD shock, through $3,950 for a basic spec, ‘special blend’ Mojo HD with Deore and SLX bits and an X Fusion shock and fork, all the way up to $9,200 for the full XTR blingathon with Fox 36 fork and Cane Creek InLine shock. We’ve just had confirmation of UK prices too:
Here’s the press release we’ve been sent:
The new Mojo HD (HD3 for short) is the third act in the Mojo HD/Mojo HDR trailbike trilogy. Everything is new from the ground-up, notably featuring the latest and greatest refinement of the famed dw-link suspension. Geometry is fully modern: longer, lower and slacker, with 6” of plush rear wheel travel. We’ve built in versatile internal routing and updated the frame design, allowing us to put a water bottle on top of the downtube. We also achieve a drop in weight and pedaling performance on par with the Ripley, so the bike is very fast going up, and scary fast going down.
