Missing since 2020, the full carbon Ibis DV9 hardtail mountain bike is back in the lineup. Despite a familiar looking frame, the geo is dramatically updated, and it gets a few new shapes and features down low.

The DV9 remains a 29er only, and is built around 120mm forks, but you can run 100mm to 140mm travel forks if you want.

Geometry is based on the World Cup-winning Ibis Exie short travel full suspension XC bike, the head angle is 2º slacker than the prior model – 66.5º across all four frame sizes.

Chainstays are 14mm shorter at 425mm. Combined, they should give the bike a bit more pop in the corners and climbs, and a bit more stability on the descents.

Despite tightening up the rear end, there’s still room for 29×2.6″ tires.

And if you wanna get really shreddy, it can handle massive 203mm brake rotors and four-piston calipers.

Seat tube angles are 2-4º steeper, depending on size, putting riders in a more ergonomic and powerful riding position when needed, and with dropper seatposts making it easy to get off the back, too.

Reach gets a bit longer to compensate, and the top tube keeps its bend to provide a lower standover height (great for smaller riders). Small frames can clear a 22oz and 26oz bottle inside, and larger frames fit two 26oz bottles.

It has downtube and chainstay protection, with full internal tube-in-tube cable and hose routing for easy (well, easier) maintenance.

They also wanted to make it affordable. Ibis co-owner Hans Heim says he wanted a race-worthy bike that NICA athletes could pay off with a summer job…and take podiums with.

It’s not just for kids though. With four sizes, they say it fits riders from 5′ to 6’6″ tall.
