Developed for the most demanding courses of the professional enduro circuit, the Ibis Mojo HD4 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame marks a stark departure from the previous Mojo HD3 with its long, slack geometry paired with a piggyback shock that's tuned with greater progression to keep you from bottoming out. This reconfigured geometry and progressive shock tune is driven by the needs of the Ibis Enduro Race Team competing on the world's most demanding stages, as opposed to the previous Mojo HD3, which focused more on agility and playfulness over all-out speed. Delving into the Mojo HD4's revised geometry, you'll find it's not just a bit longer, it's actually much longer than before, with the medium through large frames sporting reach numbers that are longer than the previous HD3's large and extra-large figures, respectively (small frames get an increase in reach, it's just not as drastic). These longer figures also translate to the HD4's wheelbase, which has grown considerably to offer higher levels of confidence when you're pushing the bike to the absolute limit on blistering-fast downhills. For actual wheelbase figures, the HD4 is anywhere from about an inch longer in its smallest size to over two inches longer for the extra-large frame. This is helpful for riders who previously sized up on the Mojo HD3, due to its shorter overall length and reach figures. Not only is the Mojo HD4 much longer than the previous HD3, but it's also much slacker for greater stability when you're plunging into formidable downhill sections. Ibis played around with different head tube angles until they settled on 64. 9 degrees, which they claim offers greater downhill stability and higher lean angles before it loses traction. The second part is especially important for riding on trails and race courses with tricky off-camber sections, as the slacker head tube angle keeps the bike planted to the trail, instead of plunging down the fall line or slipping off precipitous edges.

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
