Why We Like The Ibis HD6 XT Mountain Bike

Bombing technical descents, hitting the jump lines, or racing in an enduro series, the HD6 is one of our top choices when we need an aggressive enduro bike that can do just about anything. Coming a long way from its older sibling, the HD5, the HD6 received many improvements, including 15mm of added rear suspension travel and 10mm more fork travel to make it more capable. In addition, the HD6 takes things up a notch and brings us a mixed-wheel setup for the best of both worlds, with a fast-rolling, 29-inch wheel up front and an agile 27.5-inch wheel in the rear. 165mm of DW-Link suspension allows the HD6 to eat up technical trails with ease, climb like a trail bike, and have a plush yet supportive ride. Designed for railing big mountain descents and enduro racing, the HD6 has a 64-degree headtube angle for maximum stability when descending and a size-specific seat tube angle averaging at 76.5-degrees to put us in an efficient position when climbing back to the top for another lap. Short and agile chainstays across all sizes ensure an agile bike that allows us to move the back end around corners easier and aids in getting the wheels off the ground. A new link design gives the HD6 a progressive leverage ratio and a coil-compatible shock, while the lower link has been rotated 90 degrees, allowing us to access it without having to remove our cranks. Integrated chainstay and downtube protectors keep our frame looking new, and a shuttle guard allows us to throw our bike into the back of our truck bed so we can drive to the trailhead worry-free. Room for a bottle mount in the front triangle allows us to take along a water bottle, and internal cable routing with internally guided tubes makes for effortless cable management and a silent bike.

The XT build of the Ibis HD6 is a high-end build that features Shimano XT components. To start, Ibis's carbon frame is made with premium carbon fiber for a strong and lightweight frame weighing just 5.5 pounds. Shimano's XT 12-speed drivetrain sports a 10-51-tooth cassette range for getting us up steep climbs and has reliable and precise shifting for many miles to come. Fox's Float Factory X2 rear shock soaks up every bump on the trail, is super adjustable for a customized ride, and is smoother than butter. The Fox Float Factory 38, 180mm fork handles all trails with complete authority and helps to erase our mistakes as we race to the bottom. The Shimano XT 4-piston brakes throw down tons of stopping power, and premium Maxxis Assegai and DHRII tires give us all the traction we need for riding steep technical lines.

*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.
