    In designing the new Mojo 3 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame, Ibis borrowed some choice features from the burlier, enduro-driven HD3, yet crafted a chassis that is lighter, more agile, and ultimately better suited for riders who demand a versatile trail bike. With a lightweight build; a long, low geometry; and notably short chainstays, the Mojo 3 is incredibly nimble yet still capable of handling the most aggressive descents.

    The Mojo 3 features the latest DW-Link suspension, making it quick and responsive on climbs and equally fit for bombing downhill. The Boost swingarm stiffens the frame and also allows you to run 2.8in tires in the rear. This is the beauty of the Mojo 3: you can run 2.3, 2.5, or 2.8in Plus tires without sacrificing performance. So whether you need to be light and fast for your next enduro race or want an all-mountain set-up with more traction, the Mojo 3 is made to handle it all with ease.

    Favorite trail bike I've ever ridden

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Setup: Fox factory, 34 fork, xo1 eagle, Guide RSC brakes, i9 Backcountry 360 wheels, Maxxis Rekon 2.8 tires.



    I'm going to preface this review by saying that I have always been an Ibis fan, and loved the snappy, nimble feel their bikes provide. When I heard that they were making a shorter travel version of their HD3 with plus tire compatibility and shorter chainstays, I got myself on the wait list and picked up a frame.



    This is the first plus tired bike I have owned, but I have ridden quite a few and this bike in particular stood out to me for one simple reason: It doesn't feel like a plus bike. Let me clarify, you get the velcro like grip that the plus tires provide, without the somewhat sluggish feel that some of the longer travel plus bikes tend to have, especially leaning the bike over when connecting switchbacks on a windy descent.



    I will say that this bike is not a "lean back and hold on" trail slayer. It is incredibly light and nimble feeling, and requires you to be a bit more precise about your line selection. Should you do that though, you will be rewarded with an incredibly lively and nimble feeling trail bike with grip for days. This thing wants to be airborne, and is absolutely the most playful trail bike I have ever ridden, even with the wider 2.8 tires.



    Still very nimble on the climbs though! With the DW suspension, I never found myself using the climb mode on the shock, opting most times to leave it in trail mode, and opening it up fully for the downhills. Pedal bob stayed at a minimum, and I never felt gassed because of the bike at the end of a long climb.



    I would happily recommend this bike to anyone, and would be happy to talk about the details and pick out a killer component setup to make this bike sing. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have!

    Favorite trail bike I've ever ridden

    Hi Luke. I have a question on sizing. I rode my friends large mojo 3 and it felt amazing. I'm 5'9 30 inseam but have a long reach.

    I'm riding a medium Santa Cruz nomad and am going to get a mojo 3 for a more trail oriented bike. I'm just not sure if I should stick with the large or try a medium too.

    Dave,

    Thanks for reaching out! Based on your height, I still think the Medium would be good for you even with a longer reach. These bikes do fit a bit on the shorter side, but they are really not all that much shorter than the gen 2-3 Nomads. Shoot me an email at ldordai@backcountry.com and lets talk specifics!

    Great bike!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My setup: Large Mojo 3 with Fox Evol and Fox 34 Factory Fork, Ibis 738 wheels with 2.8 Rekons, 1 X 11 RF Turbine and XT derailleur, cassette and brakes.



    Coming from a 17 year old Ellsworth Truth, this bike continues to amaze me. The build quality is second to none and the service through CC has been top notch. I'm 5'9'' with a long torso and a call to Ibis led me to order a Large. This size fit me perfectly. A few adjectives that I would use would be snappy, agile, playful and confidence inspiring. I am already making it up climbs that I wouldn't have attempted in the past. While descending, the M3 is not as plush as I would have hoped, but it is more than capable of handling anything I can throw at it. I'm still dialing in the suspension, but I suppose all of that nimbleness comes at the cost on the descents. Regardless, I am very happy with the bike. As far as the + tires go, I'm a believer. The traction afforded is INSANE!!! Those nice XT brakes don't get near as much use as the stoppers on my previous bikes. You can just lean into corners and it will bite much harder than you've ever thought possible. I may be faster on a 9er, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have as much fun!



    I had the great fortune of meeting Scot Nichol at a recent Cyclofest and had the chance to discuss my bike, setup and mountain biking in general with him. He was in the pits, wrenching on demo bikes with all the other guys. You could tell that biking is this guys life and that he enjoys every facet of cycling and takes pride in his product. That's the kind of guy that I want to buy a bike from!



    Cheers!

    Great bike!

    Whelp, I'm sold. This very likely will be my next bike. I'm 5'11" and have an inseam of 32" and rode a large frame. While I didn't get to climb as much as I would have liked, I was more than impressed with the downhill performance for a trail bike.



    In all honesty, most modern bikes these days don't really have straight up pros/cons so I'm going to switch it up from my normal format. Things that stood out on it:

    -I was worried you'd get the rotational forces feel on the wheels that fat bikes get. I rode the 2.8" Knobby Nics and the worry for not being able to turn once you pick up speed washed away. They're definitely noticeably bigger, but the bike feels great with them. I would like to try the bike out with smaller tires as well, I'd imagine its just as fun and may feel a bit faster.

    -For being as slack as it is (66.8 degree headtube angle) it felt very nimble and could whip it around tight switchbacks both down and up. It just feels straight up snappy.

    -While it doesn't have a bottomless feel (I didn't expect it to, its a 130mm bike), the bike would definitely be able to take some relatively big hits, especially smoother stuff. I definitely rode through some chunky areas and the bike handled it great, possibly due to being as slack as it is.

    -I didn't get to climb as much as I would have liked, but was a huge fan of the DW-Link Suspension. Snappy uphill and plush downhill.



    Things I would change (personal preference on these more than anything):

    - I'd bump up to a 34t chainring. Half because I ran out of gears on some downhills, half because I like a good sufferfest on the uphill.

    - The dropper post didn't have any issues, but I like the "front derailleur style lever" and wouldn't mind that.



    Just wanted to drop a note that I did end up buying this bike despite test riding many others.



    Things I changed from this build for my own personal bike:

    - X01 cranks

    - Fox 36 with travel dropped to 140mm

    - Ibis 742's with DHF & DHR tires

    -RaceFace SixC bars



    If you want to talk shop about the Mojo 3 or look into getting it custom spec'd best for you, don't hesitate to reach out and I'd be happy to help!
