The new norm.

A little over a decade ago, Ibis complete rewrote the script of trail riding with the original Mojo. With the launch of the all-new Mojo 3 Carbon XX1 Werx Complete Mountain Bike, Scot Nicol and company have once again up-ended the script. The Mojo 3 represents Ibis' take on the latest trend of mid-travel trail bikes with Boost axles, 27.5+ tire clearance, and long, low geometries that manage to maintain climbing dexterity while slacking out with the big boys. Ibis has also thrown in its own 741 wheelset, whose wide, carbon rims let 2.8in tires sit fat without making any concessions in stiffness to smaller, 26in wheels. The result is a bike that, unlike most other enduro sleds or five-inch trail bikes, we're perfectly comfortable referring to as "all-mountain." We'd race the hell out of it on an XC course, session it at a park, or even drop in where bikes with 130mm of travel normally fear to tread.

The Mojo 3 tempers the extremes that make the brand's six-inch 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. This weight loss isn't surprising, as the Mojo 3 is the seventh carbon lay-up schedule that Ibis went so far as building to test. (We have no idea how many countless designs didn't even make it off the drawing board.) A lot of the 27.5+ bikes we're seeing feel rushed as manufacturers push models out to capitalize on trend hype, but the Mojo 3's two-year development period indicates that Ibis wasn't willing to just throw the plus label on any old frame. Two hours on virtually any trail will confirm the value in the brand's meticulous approach.

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. While we haven't encountered any terrain too steep for the SRAM XX1 drivetrain's generous cassette range, it's nice to know the double option is available in case the need ever arises.

2 questions: what is the weight of the Mojo3? and does it have the Next crank like in the picture or the turbine crank like in the description? Thank you - Chuck, Hood River Oregon

Hey Charles - This specific XX1 WERX build on the Mojo 3 comes with the Race Face Next SL, 30t, 175mm Crankset. And it will weigh roughly 28 lbs. I just got back from a bike trip out to your neck of the woods! Loved riding in Post Canyon, especially Blade Runner. Feel free to contact me directly if you are interested in ordering this bike or with any additional questions.
