Description We are pleased to announce a major update to the Mojo HD3 as of March of 2016.

The Mojo HD3 is now both Boost and Plus compatible.

Boost is a new standard for axles and drivetrains that allows us to build a bike with a stiffer rear end and no weight penalty. It also allows us to increase clearance so we can run larger rubber on the bike. The HD3 now accommodates the incredible new 2.8" Plus tires from both Schwalbe and Maxxis. In the words of 'The Angry Singlespeeder" on MTBR, these tires have "Traction for Days". The level of grip with the new plus tires is just shy of Velcro.

Geometry is fully modern: longer, lower and slacker, with 6" of plush rear wheel travel and a 67 degree head-angle. Ibis resisted the move to a super slack head angle preferring to keep the bike in the ideal balance between going up as well as down.

Ibis built in versatile internal routing and updated the frame design, allowing them to put a water bottle on top of the downtime.

A drop in weight and pedaling performance on par with the Ripley has also been achieved , so the bike is very fast going up, and scary fast going down.

For his year the Frames come standard with the new Fox evol shocks as standard and the X2 as an option. The new fox shocks are fantastic and further improve the feel of this bike/frame giving better a plusher feel without sacrificing big hit performance.

Dual-row angular contact bearings on the drive side of the linkage require zero preload adjustment and dramatically reduce play compared to standard, sealed bearings, further bolstering the bike's lateral solidity and your own sense of control.


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 (66.6º with 160 fork)

Shock specs: Fox Factory X2

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 2.8" 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

GEOMETRY
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 66.6º head angle. The Pike fork with 150mm of travel delivers a 67º head. The upright seat angle (73º) and short (16.9") chainstays helps us make the bike into such a capable climber

TRAVEL
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.

THE FRAME
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).

LINKAGES
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.

HEADSET
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.

ROUTING
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.

THREADED BB
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 2.8″ 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.
