Every day extreme.

While the Mojo HD3 that we've seen making the World Series rounds for the past couple of seasons was designed for the athletes operating at the tippy-top end of the enduro rankings, the Mojo 3 Carbon XT 1x Complete Mountain Bike was designed for everyone else. In the enthusiastic words of Ibis' founder, Scot Nicol, "everyone else" translates to "ME!" If you happen to clean the steppiest lines like they're paper-smooth fire roads, then you don't need us to tell you that the HD3 is probably the right ride for you, but if your ambitions and local trail furniture aren't all World Series fare, then the Mojo 3 is far more appropriate — and fun — choice. And when we write "fun," we don't mean it's for casuals only. Rather, we mean that our own hyperbolic, expletive-laden reactions of pure joy at testing this bike are unprintable here.

The Mojo 3 tempers the extremes that make the HD3 so good in apocalyptic terrain in favor of a chassis that's lighter, more agile, and still capable enough to handle everything this side of shuttled gravity loops. The 140mm Pike fork kicks the head tube out to 66.8 degrees — an angle you'll recognize from virtually every six-inch enduro bike, ever. Despite that slack front end and the bike's long, low posture, the Boost spacing allowed Ibis to slam the rear wheel up, shortening the chainstays to a stubby 16.73in while still leaving enough clearance for tires up to 2.8in in diameter. The benefits of the slack front end, Boost front and rear axles, and short stays add up to dual-threat versatility. We call it efficient climbing and line-sticking confidence whether dicing terrain or running roughshod over it; Ibis calls it "playful."

The Mojo 3's spirited kick starts with the shock tune and DW-Link suspension. Ibis tuned the shock so its initial stroke stays firm off the top but is still plush enough to keep the rear wheel glued across moderate lumps and while navigating switchbacks at climbing speeds. Ibis describes the shock's tuned ramp-up characteristics as "robust," which gives the kind of big-hit confidence that can often be the key element in determining which side of the ragged edge you find yourself on. If you swap the included 2.35in Nobby Nics for a pair of tubby 2.8in tires, the five-inch travel feels around a full inch deeper than it actually is. Regardless of the tires you choose to run, the shock tune and suspension keep the bottom bracket height at the sag point the same.

The frame itself is what you'd expect from Ibis: a full carbon monocoque affair that incorporates the construction pedigree of the HD3 but at a drastic weight savings, shedding a claimed 0.4lbs compared to the enduro brute. The tapered head tube further increases stiffness up front, which makes for yet better tracking across terrain, and the inclusion of Boost rear spacing let Ibis slam the rear wheel up for the above-mentioned stubby stays while still leaving room for tubby tires and the option of including a front derailleur. This particular build is a one-by, and we think that Shimano's redesigned XT M8000 and the broad cassette range is more than capable of handling whatever the mountain throws at us, but it's nice to know the double option is available in case the need ever arises.

Ibis does it again

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Ibis. Oh how I love you. You make bikes that ride so well. Every one is a winner. The Mojo 3 was no exception. A good little ride in the desert showed how poised and perfected this little steed was. If you dig the nimble smaller wheels- this is such a great all around bike. The DW-link is efficient and always ready to pounce. Boosted and stiff, quick on its feet, ready to pounce on the climbs, and just let it rip coming down. This reminded me of my Ripley with a very simliar- take on the world and tackle anything ride. Props Ibis. 5'11 and a Large fits like Michael Jacksons bedazzled glove.
