It's been a hot minute since we've seen a mountain hardtail from the fine folks at Ibis. Its previous frame the Tranny had some unique features for sure, but if you've been mountain biking for any amount of time, you've probably realized that things are constantly evolving and each year brings new standards, geometry, and other technology.

This is afforded by its progressive, slack geometry and clearance for up to 29x2. 6-inch tires. Of course, the carbon construction keeps things light and stiff (the frame comes in at 1210g) and since it lacks any damping at the rear end, you'll appreciate the vibration cancellation afforded by the composite layup a...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
