Ibis has captured the essence of trail riding for every type of rider by building bikes based on modern and relevant platforms.
Did someone say, “Cyclocross”?
No, I heard “Gravel”!
Some mountain bike brands are built on hype. Ibis is built on a foundation of mountain bikers devoted to the brand for over 35 years. Whether you are a cyclocross racer or a gravel grinder the Ibis Hakkalugi is a capable machine built for fun. This bike is a staff and customer favorite that always receives rave reviews.
With its well balanced modern geometry, the Ripley is ready for any adventure. The long front end, slack head angle, and short rear end gives you the confidence to try new lines, while the steep seat tube angle and shorter offset fork makes it easy to maneuver technical climbs and flowy singletrack.
What if we took everybody’s favorite bike and made it a little slacker and little longer? Hell, what if we made it more progressive and coil compatible? And that’s exactly what we did for the Ripmo V2S. Active ingredients include: 29” wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides.
With its ultra versatile geometry and 1000g frame weight, the Hakka MX is just as happy crushing the local club ride as it is jumping barriers or camping out.
History of Ibis
On April Fools day of 1981, Scot Nicol “hung up his shingle” on a funky little shop a few miles east of Mendocino California. On that day, Ibis was started without money and without a plan. Today we’re located in Santa Cruz with 40 (or so) people working at Ibis. Our 5 owners all work full time for the company. Hans Heim is our CEO, Tom Morgan is our president, Colin Hughes leads our engineering department, Roxy Lo is our designer and Scot tries to stay out of the way.
