Handmade-in-USA, the Ibis Exie is a World-Cup capable cross-country race bike that flat-out shreds.

With a sub 2,000g frame weight and dw-link suspension, it offers a stunning combination of pedaling efficiency and downhill performance. Ibis designed, built, and test­ed it in their Santa Cruz factory, which is pow­ered by the warm Cal­i­for­nia sunshine.

  • Build Kits include Shimano XT, SRAM Eagle X01, and SRAM Eagle XX1
  • Available in Raw Carbon with Cheat-O Orange and Bug Zapper Blue accents
  • "Frame and Fork" only option available
  • Upgrades include: Ibis S28 Carbon Rims with either Ibis Logo Hubs or Industry 9 Hydra Hubs

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

It 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 the pursuit of 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 allows 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.

Chainstay

An ultra swank molded rubber chainstay keeps noise at bay, while an integrated upper chain guide allows you to drop the hammer - not your chain.

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 true mountain bike. If you’re looking for a lightweight no-compromise tool that’s designed to be ridden hard, this is it.
