If you were to ask a number of experienced riders what is the "best handling" mountain bike they've ever ridden, chances are that at least a few of them will call out the Ibis Mojo HD. Ever since its introduction in 2010, this long-travel trail bike has safely carried riders through technical mountain terrain with ease, garnering a reputation as an efficient climber that's also very intuitive to ride, especially in a class where many of its peers can seem overly aggressive for most trails. With the release of the new Mojo HD5, Ibis retains those favorable characteristics while at the same time cranking up the bike's descending prowess. Drawing inspiration from their Enduro World Series pro team, the HD5 is built to tackle trails just as challenging as those found on the elite global circuit--all without sacrificing the spritely Mojo handling that makes this bike a joy to ride on tamer trails, too. Taking a closer look at the HD5's geometry, you'll find that the reach and wheelbase figures are both lengthened, and the head tube angle is slackened to 64. 2-degrees compared to the 64. 9 found on the HD4. This leads to more stable handling, particularly at higher speeds, but it also improves the bike's overall balance, which pays off at lower speeds too. Ibis also shortened the seat tube length to allow room for longer dropper posts (175mm on a medium, 150mm on a small), allowing riders to get the saddle down lower and further out of the way on tricky descents. The stack height is also increased for better composure on steep terrain--a change Ibis made after taking into account the preferences of many different racers at all levels of the sport. These changes all sound good for the gravity side of things, but Ibis was keen on making the HD5 a more efficient climber too, which is why they gave the bike a steep 76-degree seat tube angle (2-degrees steeper than the HD4). This puts the rider in a more comfortable pedaling position, but also makes it easier to control th...

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.
