Familiarity: I've used it several times

Despite the 125mm of travel, this is probably one of the faster full suspension climbers we sell. Maximum Anti-squat, thanks to the DW suspension, rockets this bike up hill. I would stick with the 120mm fork as it wasn't as supple as some of the others in the category like the Pivot 429, Santa Cruz Tallboy or the Niner Rip 9 but it can still hold its own with a capable pilot. If you're looking for a race/endurance race bike that can still hold its own when things get rough, this is it. If you're looking for something smooth, playful, and fun to ride the 429, Rip or tallboy might be a better option.

First (and second) ride impressions

Fast. Very fast. Climbs much quicker than I would expect but I wish it would carve the corners just a bit better- like the Mach 6 or Nomad. All around techy trailbike? Absolutely. Full on gravity machine? If you're willing to work it. This bike definitely put Ibis in the class with the other superbikes such as the Nomad, SB6c, and Mach 6 though they all have their own pluses and minuses. Want to chat more and pick out exactly the right ride for you? Give me a call, I've tested everyone of them.

Fit: True to size

I picked these up for trail running on Icy trails and they're amazing. 9 studs and deep tread don't allow any slipping even on the iciest trail. Be careful walking on rock, tile, wood, or any other surface you don't want destroyed. It put some major gouges in granite when standing around on a rock. This is defintely an outside only shoe and the studs are similar to what you find it ice/snow car tires that are made for 1000s of miles on snow/pavement. The studs should last long past the life of the shoes.
