THE SELL: A beefed-up version of their award-winning Mojo SL.
THE TEST: The Mojo HD uses the same tried-and-true DWLink rear-suspension system as the SL, but Ibis surrounded it with heavier-duty components: the burly 6.5-inch Fox Talas 36 front fork was lauded by several tester as the best in our review, and the rear Maxle through-axle hub combined for blade-straight tracking on the gnarliest terrain we could find. The Crank Brothers Iodine wheels (not shown) are as tough as they are sexy, though we felt the bike's built-in—and already plenty stiff—pedaling platform made the ProPedal function on the rear shock redundant.
THE VERDICT: Our favorite longer-travel bike this year. 28.7 lbs; ibiscycles.com
