Carbon performance, aluminium price tag. The greatest gifts aren’t bought, they’re built. That’s the story behind our new lightweight carbon 29″ hardtail, the DV9.
Inspired by his high school XC racing daughter, Lili Heim, Ibis Co-Owner and CEO Hans Heim set out to build a bike that was versatile enough for her to race and shred, but affordable enough that she could pay for it with her summer job.
The DV9 delivers unprecedented versatility with slacker-than-XC (aka Downcountry) geometry and massive tire clearance. Which is why we offer it with two distinct build kits.
Line up for race day in confidence with a 100mm Fox Step-Cast fork with 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.
A frame only retails for $999. Complete builds start at $2,199 and are shipping now.
