2017 Ibis Mojo 3 Carbon XT 2x Complete Mountain Bike

As of late, it’s getting harder and harder to find a double crankset on a slacked out frame, but Ibis delivers gears and fun-factor in spades with its 2017 Mojo 3 Carbon XT 2x Complete Mountain Bike. Inspired by its enduro-king HD3 sibling, the Mojo 3 boasts the capability to handle almost any terrain and a lighter, more playfully agile chassis that gives it a versatility to manage everything from your favorite local trail systems to hard-charging park laps. Ibis gives this Mojo Shimano’s renowned XT M8000 drivetrain, hydraulic brakes, and a dropper post, making it ready to hit the trails as soon as you can set it up out of the box.

The Mojo 3’s versatility begins with the shock tune and DW-Link suspension. Ibis tuned the shock so its initial stroke rides on the “plush” side, but our firsthand experience with the bike tells us that generous small bump compliance doesn’t keep it from feeling firm off the top. It’s responsive and changes direction quickly while navigating switchbacks at climbing speeds, and the anti-squat pedaling platform maintains past the sag point. On the flip side, the ramp-up characteristics can best be described as 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.

The shock’s tune doesn’t require a high damper handicap, a fact that Ibis credits to the shock rate and DW-Link’s steady pedaling platform. Since it naturally reduces bob without too much damping from the shock, DW-Link’s ramp-up stays smooth throughout its suspension arc. It also suffers less heat build-up than heavily dampened models, so its ramp feel isn’t significantly affected during hard, fast descents where the shock is working overtime.

Ibis says that the stubby chainstays and low claimed frame weight make the bike feel “taut,” and we think that’s a wonderfully succinct way to describe the responsive aggression the Mojo 3 exhibits on the kind of climbs that would send the lumbering gravity crowd in search of a chairlift. When paired with a 140mm fork, the Mojo 3’s 66.8-degree head tube is on par with standard slack enduro standards and situates it squarely at the foremost tip of the advancing sea of all-mountain machines that drop in as well as they climb out.

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 0.4lb compared to the enduro brute. The final product is actually the seventh carbon lay-up schedule that Ibis tested—yet another indication that the Mojo 3 was carefully and meticulously developed rather than being rushed to market in order to capitalize on the 27.5+ hype.

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—which are approaching XC standards—while still leaving room for tubby tires and a front derailleur. That clearance also means that the frame is compatible with tires ranging from beefy 2.8in plus sized down to 2.3in.
