dv9

The DV9 is our lightweight carbon do-anything, go-anywhere hardtail. With down-country geometry and massive tire clearance, you can rip a training loop Friday, race Saturday, and roost Sunday.

The DV9 is currently sold out but we still have available stock! Due to global supply chain challenges, Ibis anticipates the return will be in 2022.

THE WHY

The great­est gifts aren’t bought, they’re built. That’s the sto­ry behind our car­bon hard­tail, the DV9. Inspired by his high school XC rac­ing daugh­ter, Lili Heim, Ibis Part­ner and CEO Hans Heim set out to build a bike that could own race day, devour sin­gle­track, explore the back­coun­try, and it had to be afford­able enough that she could pay for it with a sum­mer job.

GEOMETRY

Com­pared to our pre­vi­ous hard­tail, the reach on the DV9 has grown by 20?–?24mm depend­ing on size. We also slack­ened the head tube to 67.4° with a 120mm fork and 68.5° with a 100mm fork. These num­bers give the bike a con­fi­dent feel at speed, with­out com­pro­mis­ing light, and crisp handling.

VERSATILITY

Race tape, root fest, or both. Your choice. You can line up for race day in con­fi­dence with a 100mm Fox Step­cast fork w/remote lock­out and 2.25” fast guy tires. Or, shralp past your bud­dies on their full sus­pen­sion rigs with a 120mm Fox Rhythm 34 and physics-defy­ing 2.6” tires.

TIRE CLEARANCE

Whether you pre­fer the cushy and con­fi­dent ride that 2.6” tires deliv­er or the blaz­ing speed of weight-con­scious 2.25” rub­ber, we’ve got you covered.

DV9

The DV in the name stands for devel­op­ment, because this is a bike you can grow with. Whether you’ve got race day aspi­ra­tions or are just out there enjoy­ing the ride.
