Same name, new attitude


By slackening the head tube angle, stretching out the reach, and steepening the seat angle, the new HD4 is just as efficient as ever, but this time delivering a ridiculously stable descending prowess. Initial testing over the past year was conducted throughout Northern California’s most rugged backcountry trails, and most recently on the EWS Circuit in Madeira Portugal. This was the new HD4’s first appearance on the world stage, and its pedigree proved effective as the Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team stood together on the top of the podium, taking over the number one ranking in the series!

The subtle modifications on the murdered-out iconic Mojo form did not go unnoticed and the forums exploded with chatter. Netting this sort of result from its first foray into world-class competition, it is apparent that the HD4 is here to deliver top results on the world’s gnarliest terrain.
