The DV9 is an affordable 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.
EVO's take on the DV9:
The DV9 is an unusual beast these days, neither a flat out XC-rig or an all-mountain slayer. The DV9 was developed by Ibis as an affordable carbon hardtail you could build up as a super-fast xc race bike with a 100mm fork or a trail bike with a 120mm fork. Switch to some fast rolling xc tyres to do the South Downs Way in a day or go gravel riding, some fatter 2.4" trail tyres for your local trail centre.
The DV9 is a lightweight and comfortable carbon frame at a reasonable price that can change with your needs over time.
The geometry numbers really don't tell you that much about this bike, it works great with a 50mm stem and 800mm bar for aggressive trail riding or a 70mm stem and a 740mm bar for tighter XC. The DV9 is a playful handling bike that climbs great, delivers great comfort due to the clever carbon layup but also lets on more techy downhills. A true all-round MTB frame.
