Inspired by his high school XC racing daughter, Lili Heim, Ibis Partner and CEO Hans Heim set out to build a bike that could own race day, devour singletrack, explore the backcountry, and it had to be affordable enough that she could pay for it with a summer job.
Compared to the previous Ibis hardtail, the reach on the DV9 has grown by 20-24mm depending on size. The hea tube is slackened 67.4° with a 120mm fork and 68.5° with a 100mm fork. These numbers give the bike a confident feel at speed, without compromising light, and crisp handling.
Race tape, root fest, or both. Your choice. You can line up for race day in confidence with a 100mm Fox Stepcast fork w/ remote lockout and 2.25” fast guy tires. Or, shralp past your buddies on their full suspension rigs with a 120mm Fox Rhythm 34 and physics-defying 2.6” tires.
With huge tire clearance: Whether you prefer the cushy and confident ride that 2.6” tires deliver or the blazing speed of weight-conscious 2.25” rubber, we’ve got you covered.
The DV in the name stands for development, because this is a bike you can grow with. Whether you’ve got race day aspirations or are just out there enjoying the ride.
