DV9 GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike

Considering the sheer number of full suspension bikes on the market these days, it can be easy to forget the fun, simplicity, and value of a good hardtail. Hardtails are great for honing your skills, or for many of us, refreshing them, especially after spending so much time on a full-squish bike. For these reasons we're happy to present the DV9 from Ibis. The DV9 is Ibis' lightweight, go-anywhere, do-anything carbon hardtail. With progressive XC geometry and massive tire clearance, you'll be able to rip technical trails one weekend and compete in a 24-hour cross-country race the next. And like other bikes in Ibis' lineup, you'll appreciate its incredibly lightweight performance, super-agile feel, and thoughtful details throughout the frame.

The inspiration for the DV9 came from Ibis' CEO Hans Heim, who wanted to create a versatile frame for his high school XC-racing daughter Lili. Lili is in high-school, an active racer, and she has to buy her own bikes, so it needed the rolling benefits of 29-inch wheels, and be affordable and versatile out of necessity as well. Ibis hooks up the DV9 with modern features, such as internal dropper post routing, a tapered head tube, Boost rear axle spacing, and an in-house favorite, a creak-free threaded bottom bracket. The big story with the DV9 is its ability to be competitive on the race course as well as a capable trail bike when you just want to have fun. This is afforded by its progressive, slack geometry and clearance for up to 29x2.6-inch tires. Of course, the carbon construction keeps things light and stiff (the frame comes in at 1210g) and since it lacks any damping at the rear end, you'll appreciate the vibration cancellation afforded by the composite lay-up as well as those high-volume tires.

Ibis gives the DV9 modern features such as internal dropper post routing, a tapered head tube, Boost rear axle spacing, and an in-house favorite, a creak-free threaded bottom bracket. The big story with the DV9, however, is its ability to be competitive on the race course as well as a capable trail bike when you just want to have fun. This is afforded by its progressive, slack geometry that Ibis appropriately refers to as "down-country." Of course, the carbon construction keeps things light and stiff (the frame comes in at 1210g) and since it lacks any damping at the rear end, you'll appreciate the vibration cancellation afforded by the composite layup.

Compared to Ibis' previous hardtail the Tranny, the reach numbers on the DV9 grew by 20 to 24mm depending on the size. The head tube also slackens from an XC dedicated 71-degrees to an all-around capable 67.4-degrees with this 120mm Fox Fork. These numbers encourage you to charge hard regardless of whether you're pushing towards the front of the pack at your local race series, or chasing your friends down some raw singletrack on a big backcountry epic. Its low bottom bracket keeps it planted when railing berms, while its 17.3-inch chainstays enhance its responsive, lively feel.

The frame's carbon construction is everything we expect from Ibis with a nod towards optimized torsional stiffness and the ability to soak up trail chatter. It receives styling cues from other frames in the lineup visually with its angular contours as well as with its tapered headtube and versatile cable ports. Out back, burly chainstays ensure crisp response under hard pedaling while the thinner seatstays impart some give so jolts aren't sent directly to your backside.

A FOX Float Rhythm suspension fork provides 120mm of smooth travel up front, thanks to its GRIP damper and air spring dissipating the trail hits. Its SRAM 1x drivetrain is made of a GX Eagle rear derailleur, cassette, and trigger shifter offering crisp, accurate shifts. Braking is performed by Shimano's Deore brakes, which are extremely reliable and powerful. The stem and carbon handlebar are sourced from Ibis. Rounding things out, the bike rolls on Ibis S35 alloy rims and hubs, wrapped in Schwalbe tires that grip tenaciously and roll quickly.

  • Ibis' versatile, fast, fun-loving carbon hardtail
  • Tackle rugged trail rides or make the podium at XC races
  • Slacker 67.4° head tube angle adds descending confidence
  • Geometry balances nimbleness and stability
  • Carbon frame is light, stiff, strong, and comfortable
  • Frame clears a 29 x 2.6in tire for cushion and traction
  • Boost axle spacing increases the stiffness of the 29-inch wheels
  • Internal cable routing lets you run a stealth dropper post in the future
