If the HD3 was designed for racers operating at the pointy end of the enduro rankings, then the 2017 Ibis Mojo 3 Carbon X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike was designed for the rest of us mere mortals.

Ibis describes the shock's tuned ramp-up characteristics as "robust." We describe it as the kind of big-hit confidence that can often be the key element in determining which side of the ragged edge you find yourself on. By outfitting this Mojo 3 with moderate 2. 5in tires, you'll enjoy confident traction and a deeper travel feel than you might expect from other 130mm suspensions. Regardless of the tires you choose to run, the shock tune and suspension keep the bottom bracket height at the sag point the same. The shock's tune doesn't require a ...
