|Style||The new Mojo HD (HD3 for short) is the third act in the Mojo HD/Mojo HDR trailbike trilogy. Everything is new from the ground-up, notably featuring the latest and greatest refinement of the famed dw-link suspension. Geometry is fully modern: longer, lower and slacker, with 6" of plush rear wheel travel. We've built in versatile internal routing and updated the frame design, allowing us to put a water bottle on top of the downtube. We also achieve a drop in weight and pedaling performance on par with the Ripley, so the bike is very fast going up, and scary fast going down.
This is the Werks model and has Ibis super wide Carbon rims and a fox 36 fork.
650b (27.5") wheels
The most advanced version of the dw-link suspension on the planet
6" (150mm) of rear wheel travel
Weight for the frame and shock, size large, matte finish: 5.9 lbs
67 degree head angle with a 150mm fork (66.6Âº with 160 fork)
Shock specs: Cane Creek DBinline
ISCG 05 compatible with removable adapter
Threaded bottom bracket
Super versatile internal cable routing including internal dropper routing.
Optional polycarbonate down tube cable guard
Chain stay length: 16.9"
12 x 148mm Maxle rear axle
160mm post mount left dropout, carbon fiber
Tapered Head Tube and Steerer
Up to 2.4" rear tire depending on brand and height of cornering knobs
Dual row angular contact bearings on the drive side of the lower link that have less play than standard sealed bearings. Preload adjustment is not necessary. Large 28mm x 15mm x 7mm radial bearings on the non drive side for stiffness and long wear
Bottom Bracket height 13.4"
Removable direct mount front derailleur mount for a clean 1X look
While the frame looks similar to its predecessor cousins the HD and the HDR, the geometry has been refined and modernized. All top tube lengths have jumped by 20mm from the earlier HD's. The bike is longer and lower and slacker. With the Fox 36, you can build the bike of the beast with a 66.6Âº head angle. The Pike fork with 150mm of travel delivers a 67Âº head. The upright seat angle (73Âº) and short (16.9") chainstays helps us make the bike into such a capable climber
We think 6" of travel is right for most people's riding needs, we felt it struck the best balance for a climbable enduro style bike. With a longer travel bike comes the temptation to put 180mm forks on them, thus requiring heavier frame construction and moving the bike into a different category.
Variable leverage rates and shock tunes can make a 6" bike feel it's got much more travel, or it can be the other way around. Since our dw-link bikes tend not to get stuck in the middle of their travel and have a very linear feel to them, the available travel feels consistent, predictable and more usable.
Another advantage of sitting a bit higher in its travel is that we can lower the bottom bracket height, making for a better handling bike, while not being prone to pedal strikes.
You'll notice that the HD3 shares its DNA with the Mojo HD, the Ripley and the Tranny. From the HD comes the iconic Mojo frame design, beautifully organic yet proven to be fiercely robust. We've borrowed the clevis idea from the Ripley, allowing for more clearance in the triangle, meaning you can conventionally mount a water bottle inside the triangle (and another one under the downtube on the large and XL). From the Tranny comes the latest in elegant industrial design and versatile cable routing options.
We've managed to keep the weight to less than 6 pounds with shock (5.9 with a large size).
With the help of the clevis, we've made the linkages on the HD3 lighter. There is a new bearing configuration, with both dual row angular contact bearings moving to the drive side, enhancing the stiffness.
We run tapered head tubes and steerers in all of our bikes as they deliver an exceptionally rigid front-end platform. One of the new features of the HD3 not found in our bikes previously is the ZS56 lower headset. This allows for a bigger gap between the top tube and the down tube which results in a stronger front end with no weight penalty. It's particularly effective on the small and medium.
There's a lot of versatility with the cable routing. You can run full housing or interrupted housing. Interrupted housing using our available cable stops will allow you to save about 55 grams of weight over a fully run housing. Our dropper of choice is the KS LEV Integra but a dropper line can be run though the top tube if you're not using a top pull front derailleur.
FRONT DERAILLEURS AREN'T DEAD YET
If you peek under the upper link at the back of the seat tube, you'll see a small aluminum piece bolted on. That's a cover plate that replaces our direct mount front derailleur adapter. If you're running 1X you'll use this plate, and if you want to run XTR 2X or XT 2X, there's an extremely clean derailleur mount that bolts on.
The bottom bracket is threaded 68mm with ISCG capability. Each frame will ship with an adapter, allowing you to mount a chainguide should you desire.
TIRES AND ROTORS
Depending on brand and depth of knobs, most 650b tires up to 2.4″ will fit the Mojo HD3, and you can fit up to a 200mm diameter rear rotor.
POLYCARBONATE DOWNTUBE GUARD
If you ride in rocky environments we have available an optional polycarbonate guard that bolts on under the down tube, providing an extra degree of protection.
