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.
LONG DROPPER POST
Ibis use names like small, medium, and large to describe our sizing because it’s easy to understand, but their ultra low standovers and clearance for long droppers give you the ability to size based on reach.
LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON, FOR EVERYONE
Whether you order an XTR or NX kit, you’ll get the same premium carbon fibre frame. All Ibis bikes are built from the highest grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance.
2.6” TYRE CLEARANCE
Ibis pioneered the wide rim revolution a few years ago and inspired a new crop of wider 2.4”–2.6” tyres. When paired together, this combo can be run at ultra low pressures that produce elbow-dragging cornering traction without sacrificing speed.
