Ibis Mojo HDR 650B Review

IBIS Mojo HDR 650B

Once upon a time in the world of Mountain Bike riding, there was the Mojo HD. The model proved super popular, but that’s not where the story ends. On the contrary, the team at Ibis was determined to bring even more mojo to their original design. Lighter, stronger, the Mojo HDR 650B is the new alpha baby on the block.

Like its predecessor (which is still very much in demand), the HDR 650B retains identical travel (160mm), and the same geometry and suspension (dw-link). But after this, things start to differ. The big change is that (as the name suggests) the HDR 650B can run in 26-inch wheel/ 160mm of rear travel mode as well as 27.5-inch (650B) wheel/130-mm of rear travel mode. It also has added clearance in the rear to allow for 11-speed as well as the new XV and Float X shocks.

The combined weight of the frame and shock is a fraction over 2.8kg, which is just a smidge over 226g lighter than the original Mojo HDR.

Just a snapshot of the Mojo HDR 650B’s other features include 67.5 degree head angle with a Fox Float 34 160mm fork, optional Fox RC4 coil real, optional polycarbonate down tube cable guard, a tapered steerer and direct mount front derailleur. Check it out here
