Ibis Mojo SLR – The new Ibis bike!

26er Pro Reviews Video

At media camp in Santa Cruz, CA, they really wowed us with the spec on this bike. They used Fox Factory Team forks and shocks that use ultra low friction Kashima stanctions. Then put on the latest Easton EC90x tubeless carbon wheels that weigh 1250 grams.  Finally, Shimano 2×10 XTR drivetrains with anti-chain slap technology finished the package.  This setup complements the SL-R perfectly and should be available from Ibis when purchasing a complete bike.

Price: $2499 for frame

Availability: June 2011

Specifications:

  • 140mm rear wheel travel, dw-link suspension
  • Carbon fiber monocoque frame and swingarm
  • Kashima coated Fox Float RP23 with Adaptive Logic Boost Valve technology comes as standard equipment

April 11 –

For weeks, Ibis has teased its disciples with a ‘new bike, coming April 14.’ Well, the enthusiasts of the the Mtbr Norcal forum have been hot on the trail and have theorizing on the bike’s form for over a week. They may have cracked the code or have they? It is still April after all.

Here is the discussion a the Ibis Forum

They grabbed a photo that was up briefly on the Ibis site.Fullscreen capture 4112011 112001 PM

It looks like a Mojo SL with some HD muscle. Common theories are:
- 140 mm travel with slacker angles than Mojo SL
- tapered headset
- HD style cable routing
- HD developed and strenthened tubes and linkages.

If it is indeed a 140 mm SL-R, how does it fit in with the Ibis Mojo HD 140mm?

Of course, this could all be a decoy and they could be taking us all for a ride. Many, many fans of course are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the Ibis first 29er bike that is not due til the end of the year.

We will learn more about this new bike in the coming days. Sea Otter of course is now prime product announcement central these days!

What are your theories on what the new bike is?
