Ibis Releases the New Mojo V4
Ibis' Mojo has gone through a number of iterations and V4 sees a number of improvements, including advanced geometry, clearance for longer droppers, internally molded cable tunnels, a Ripmo style lower link for reduced maintenance and added frame protection. Read on after the break for a full rundown, including specs and pricing.
The word Mojo refers to a magic spell or charm, and - more broadly - a magical power. Since its introduction in 1994, the Mojo has delivered a wicked combination of fun and all-mountain prowess. When Ibis was reborn in 2005, we conjured the first Mojo Carbon.
Carbon in a time of aluminum, 5 inches in a time of 3 to 4, unheard of efficiency, all with the uncanny ability to flutter over roots, undisturbed. It was magic. That iconic form and the do it all performance laid the parameters for the modern trail bike. Now the Mojo V4 materializes with advanced geometry and features proven across our product line.
The newest Mojo has 140mm of travel up front, 130mm of cloudlike dw-link efficiency outback, and is every bit the all-rounder it’s always been. But we’ve added Traction Tune to keep the instantaneous, ever-recovering flow of an enduro bike, along with the explosive acceleration of an XC bike. Magic has evolved.

Since 2005, we’ve partnered with suspension guru Dave Weagle on the dw-link suspension platform. It provides an unparalleled combination of climbing efficiency and downhill performance, which has been proven repeatedly at the highest levels of racing.
Add to that evolved geometry: A 76.6-degree, get-you-up-that-hill seat tube angle, our shortest chainstays, and a spacious reach with a 65.4-degree headtube angle. This enchanting combination rolls on 27.5” wheels, to deliver that hoverbike feel with on-trail confidence.
Pick Your Size
Available in four sizes now with lower standover heights and shortened seat tubes for longer dropper posts. Now you can choose your frame based on reach—riders 5-feet tall easily fit on a small and still enjoy a 125mm dropper, while most medium and up riders can enjoy a 185mm. All sizes fit a water bottle, and those looking to go packless can run our aftermarket Pork Chop bag.
Protect Your Investment
We couldn’t forget our big-mountain education, so we added a rock guard to the lower link plus a metal guard on the upper link pivot, to keep that Roxy Lo frame design beautiful for years to come. Speaking of which, the Mojo 4 carries our same 7-year warranty. And with a new bushing lower link, we’ve ensured the right combination of bearings and bushings to make this renowned linkage go the distance, reducing maintenance intervals while increasing stiffness. A removable ISCG mount is there if you want it, not if you don't.
