Ibis Mojo HD3 goes Boost and Plus

by 5

Ibis has launched a new back-end for its 150mm Enduro-monster the HD3, which will make it all Boosted and Plus-tyre compatible, should you so desire.

The front of the bike remains the same, but with the new arse you can (if you will) dress the gnarmonster in three appealing yet different Gowns of Shred, dependent on terrain and/or proclivity) with the very same wheels wot you have already been running. Cor!

The release suggests the following:

    • You could simply use a light pair of 2.3 tyres for a nimble trail-eaterer
    • 2.5in tyres with thick sidewalls will be good for rough and rocky conditions
    • 2.8in tyres offer ‘levels of grip (IBIS has) never seen this side of Velcro

“But (I hear you cry) what if I’ve already got a spanking Mojo HD3, and I feel bereft at my lack of sweet, sweet chubby traction?”

Well, Ibis is offering a swingarm retrofit kit for the 142mm HD3s to convert to the new swingarm.

    Well, that’s it, I’m throwing away my 2.3 DHR2s as they’re not good enough for rocky terrain.

    Even my 2.5 DHF is only ‘good enough’. Damn.

    You just wait, when the DH World Cup kicks off and they are all riding fat bikes……

    OHHH what a right proper BARGON
    Do they sell them in a Bakers Dozen or do we have to wait until they allow us to pay for their next cock/rip off???
    AND that lovely little hand (job) fist thing holding the rear brake cable was AMMMAAAAAAZZZZZZIIIINN’ so they can’t be taking us anywhere near Swiss Laundry?!?
    Could I order one with a VW Transporter badge on it?

    Or
    if I’m lucky (in a Lancia type stylee) I could buy a Maserati?

    What is happening?
