At home with the Wallners

10 June 2020

Few things stay the same in mountain biking but some things stay familiar. The outline of the Ibis Cycles Mojo is a classic shape that over the course of the last 14 years has become been subtly massaged as geometry trends have come and gone. Now on its eighth incarnation as a full-suspension bike (the Mojo name first appeared as a hardtail back in 1991) the Mojo 4 is re-underling its position as the do-it-all play thing of those who like their bikes with a bit of depth.

To launch the bike, Ibis knew they only had to make one phonecall to Sweden. To the Wallner household to be exact! Robin Wallner has ridden for the American brand since 2015 but it's his wife Ellin who gave the world the first glimpse of the new Mojo in action:

That quickly identifiable silhouette comes largely thanks to the DW-Link suspension system which now offers updated kinematics. With 140/130mm of suspension travel and 27.5in wheels, the bike is aimed at doing what the Mojo has always done well; all-round versatility. Those aspiring to conquer burlier terrain are directed towards the larger wheeled Ripmo, as raced by Wallner and his Ibis Enduro Team teammates.
