Ibis Mojo 3 – 2019
The Little Bike that Could
The Ibis Mojo 3 is one of those bikes that doesn’t feel like a big-full suspension, instead of going for a much smaller feel. Riding it, it honestly feels almost like a mouse. But like a mouse with a tendency to send big features, pump gnarly terrain, and blaze trail uphill.
On the downhill, the Mojo 3 is one of the most maneuverable and playful bikes in our lineup. Due to 27.5, 2.6” wheels and tires, it has the ability to absolutely cruise through turns. Turn initiation is immediate and snappy, and it's got a certain kind of spunk that hard to describe in words. We like to think of it as the Mojo HD4’s livelier, spunkier little brother. It's quite short 425mm chainstay allows all of this to be a reality, and the bike really is super quick int he corners because of it. Combine that with the 140mm front fork and 130mm rear suspension, and you get a quick, fun, poppy bike that wants to move.
Those quick attributes are maintained on the uphill side of things as well. The bike features DW-Link suspension, whose design allows the bike to really charge up the hill without any “bob” or sway. That design eats up the features on the trail, whether its small rocks or giant features you need top get over. You can hammer the pedals on the Mojo 3 up an incline, and the bike responds immediately. It wants to move with you.
Ibis Mojo 3- The Bottom Line
The Ibis Mojo 3 has the feeling of your little brother when he has a little too much sugar when you were kids; but in this case, that is a good thing. This bike is fun, lively, and enjoys to be pushed to its limits in the corners. The 27.5 tires are maneuverable, and turn initiation is snappy. You can really get speed into a turn with this bike, and leave the turn smiling because of how quickly you just railed it. For a mid-travel bike, the Mojo is surprisingly spunky. This is due to its really short chainstay at 425mm and its mid-slack head tube angle at 66.8°. This spunk translate well to the uphill as well, as this bike wants to MOVE. The DW-Link suspension keeps things stiff while pedaling, while still eating up the large and small bumps on the way up. If you are looking for a small-feeling, fun, and swift bike for tearing up the trail, the Mojo 3 has got you covered.
