The Exie was designed, built, and tested in Ibis' Santa Cruz manufacturing facility, powered by the warm California sunshine. This is the first carbon fiber full-suspension bike they have developed and manufactured in-house.

The Exie is the culmination of a seven-year project to rethink every aspect of the process. It is the lightest bike they have ever produced. The Exie is over a pound lighter than a Ripley, while not sacrificing pedaling efficiency or features in pursuing weight savings.

New Stem Tech

For thirty years, XC bikes have been designed around 70mm or longer stems. Ibis took a different approach: they cut 20mm off the stem and placed it back into the top tube length. This gives the Exie the confidence-inspiring balance of a trail bike, without sacrificing the immediate responsiveness you expect from a lightweight XC bike.

Size-Specific Seat Angles

Whether you’re rac­ing short track or on a mul­ti day epic, the Exie’s seat tube angles allow you to har­ness your strongest mus­cles, while reduc­ing any poten­tial knee or wrist strain. They’ve also steep­ened the seat tube angles as the frames get larg­er, to allow rid­ers with dif­fer­ent inseams to achieve the same rid­ing positions.

Mega Dropper

This allows you to pick your frame based on reach and riding preference, not your inseam. Most riders on a medium frame can fit a 170mm or greater dropper post, while riders under 5’5 can utilize a 125mm and up. Ibis has also continued their tradition of clearance for big tires, so you can line up with 2.2” go-fast tires, or throw on meaty 2.4” rubber.

The Final Word

The Exie is ready for anything, whether that’s a World Cup XC, a multi-day epic, or an after-work sprint. It’s a proper mountain bike. If you’re looking for a lightweight no-compromise tool that’s designed to be ridden hard, this is it.
