Ibis DV9- Frame Only
The DV9 is our 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.
The greatest gifts aren’t bought, they’re built. That’s the story behind the Ibis carbon hardtail, the DV9. Inspired by his high school XC racing daughter, Lili Heim, Ibis Partner and CEO Hans Heim set out to build a bike that could own race day, devour singletrack, explore the backcountry, and it had to be affordable enough that she could pay for it with a summer job.
Compared to our previous hardtail, the reach on the DV9 has grown by 20 – 24mm depending on size. We also slackened the head tube to 67.4° with a 120mm fork and 68.5° with a 100mm fork. These numbers give the bike a confident feel at speed, without compromising light, and crisp handling.
*pricing exclusive to frame only- please ring us for details and availability, not all sizes are in stock. Build kit packages may also be available. Supply is VERY limited, we will work with you to get your hands on one of these, but it may take some time.
