Exie SLX Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Ibis Exie SLX Mountain Bike
The Ibis Exie is built for crushing singletrack and crushing the competition out there on the local XC race course. This bike features a hand-laid carbon frame that strikes the perfect balance between stiffness and compliance for a responsive feel that really allows us to drop the hammer for a sprint to the finish without feeling like we spent a few rounds in the ring after a full day of trail riding. 100mm of DW-Link rear travel provides us with an extremely supportive pedaling platform, and tons of rear wheel traction for smashing slippery climbs and sending dusty descents. The geometry on the new Exie just screams efficiency with a 67.2-degree headtube angle for razor-sharp handling and a steep, size-specific seat tube angle to get us into a powerful climbing position no matter what our inseam length is.
The Ibis Exie SLX kit is a smartly spec'd high-performance build ready to make a splash on the XC race scene. This specific Exie is still constructed with pristine hand-laid carbon, but it clocks in at just about 250g heavier than its World Cup-winning counterpart. The smooth-shifting Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain handles shifting duties with precision, and a wide-range cassette allows us to keep the pedals turning up even the steepest climbs. A Fox Performance 34 Step Cast fork with 120mm of travel shaves precious grams and helps soak up trail chatter so we can stay locked in on our line, while a pair of nearly indestructible 29-inch Ibis 933 rims get laced up to their in-house hubs to keep us rolling over just about any type of terrain we find out on the course. Whether we're looking for our next single-track slayer to leave our crew in the dust on group rides or our next cross-country speed machine for racing and training, the Ibis Exie SLX Mountain Bike is built to pin it right out of the gate.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
