Jenny Rissveds' Ibis Exie in detail

Team 31 led by Sweden's Jenny Rissveds has had a major change of material for the new season. The team's bikes are now from Californian manufacturer Ibis Cycles, a brand little known in Europe but which has just finished on the World Cup podium with its Exie model after Rissveds' great Short Track in Albstadt.

Team 31, consisting of Jenny Rissveds and Kelsey Urban, has been reinforced in 2022 with the signing of Sweden's Linn Gustafzzon, but her absence in Brazil delayed the team's debut until the World Cup in Albstadt.

The Exie is Ibis' first full suspension XCO model.

 

And it was on the German circuit that we were able to see Jenny Rissveds' new and "exotic" mountain bike first-hand. We say "exotic" because we are dealing with a brand little known in the XCO, this is its first full suspension model for the modality, and that debuts for the first time in the World Cup.

This frame is made of only 150 sheets of carbon fiber, about half the weight of other frames, and weighs less than 2 kg.

 

If we had to pick one feature of this Exie it would be its DW-Link suspension system. A system rarely used for XCO but which improves traction and thrust in out of the saddle situations.
