How good is the new Ibis Mojo HD3? So good that once the review period finally wrapped up, I didn’t send the bike back – I sent Ibis my credit card number. The ‘enduro’ tagline may be agonizingly overused but the HD3 embodies the spirit of the category with far more downhill capability than its somewhat modest 150mm of travel might suggest, plus climbing performance that’s better than many dedicated XC machines.

  • Highs: Ultra-rigid chassis, fantastically versatile handling, supremely efficient-yet-supple suspension, great frame details, threaded bottom bracket
  • Lows: Sub-par saddle, narrow gear range, questionable dropper post reliability, expensive
  • Buy if: You’re after a true one-bike quiver

Ride and handling: does it all, and very well

So-called ‘quiver killer’ bikes are too often an exercise in compromises but the HD3 is a shining example of deftly shooting the gap.
