Ibis reckon they’ve created a winner in the form of the new DV9 29er carbon hardtail. Inspired by Hans Heim’s (Ibis co-owner and CEO) cross country racing daughter. There was also a big caveat just to make things a little harder for the company; Ibis wanted the DV9 to be affordable enough that even young riders could buy one with a part-time summer job.
The DV9 is following in the vein of most new cross country machines, i.e. it utilises a ‘slacker than XC’ geometry mentality. Ibis are another brand that seem to be keen on adopting the ‘Downcountry’ moniker for this type of machine. In plain English, it’s a bike that you could use for most off-road duties.
