Ibis Exie Frame in Bug Zapper Blue and Cheat-O Orange.

Like all Ibis bikes the colors look great here and EVEN BETTER in natural UV light…

Ibis Exie: It’s the details

Some of the things that set Ibis apart are the little things you might not notice.

2.4″ Tire Clearance. Why does it matter? Well, you might want the fastest possible tires some of the time, but knowing you can get more substantial rubber on the Exie gives you a range of setup options not all XC / Trail bikes have.

Larger volume tires can be used, especially with varying sidewalls to improve bite but also to create more compliance allowing a stiffer suspension setup. In a world where tenths of a degree are argued about setting a larger front tire will slightly slacken the bike as well…

Point is: your Exie has options – so you have options!

Double Bottle Clearance. If you’re burning big miles you’ll need more fuel. The Exie allows two bottles in the front triangle no matter the bike size. This is a great feature even on shorter rides as you can stow all your tools and inflators in an extra bottle and stash it on the cage eliminating your fanny pack or jersey pocket swinging around!

Integrated Chain Guide. It’s light, it works, and it’s already there.

Ibis Top Tier Carbon & FOX Factory Suspension

Across the entire Ibis Exie build lineup Ibis features their best carbon fiber and Factory suspension.

One of the things that sets Ibis apart from other brands is their singular use of a top tier carbon fiber across their entire carbon lineup. This carbon is vibrant and proven in the harshest riding conditions on the EWS circuit. Top tier carbon will retain a more vibrant feel longer into its service life.

The FOX Factory suspension is more than the slippery Kashima coat – Factory Suspension also features the top of the line dampers for the widest range of adjustment.

Ibis Exie FOX Factory Remote Suspension

Both the fork and rear shock on the Exie feature FOX’s Remote adjustment allowing on the fly, hands on the bars pedal platform changes.

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The Ibis Exie uses a 190 x 45mm shock, spec’d with the Fox Float Factory DPS Remote.

SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically trail riding styles gravitate to 25-30% sag. This would measure about 13mm for a plush setup and 11mm for a more firm setup.

Volume Spacers

Volume spacing provides fine tuning options to support the air spring.

By adding volume spacers, thus reducing the volume, you increase the air spring’s ramp rate for improved bottom out support and pop.

Conversely removing volume spacers produces a more linear feel as the air has more volume during shock compression per mm of travel.

Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

FOX Factory DPS Remote Rebound Adjustment

FOX FLOAT Factory DPS Remote Rebound Controls

The DPS provides a rebound control with 11 clicks of adjustment.

Heavier riders will use more rebound control than lighter riders to slow the air spring’s return to neutral.

As your ground speeds increase it is common to allow your bike to rebound more quickly to prepare for the next terrain feature and avoid suspension packing from slow rebound setup.

FOX Factory DPS Remote Compression Adjustment

FOX Float Factory DPS Remote Compression Control

The Fox Float Factory DPS Remote provides on-the-fly and on-the-bars compression control in a 2 position Open or Firm setting.

BikeCo Exclusive: Pro Tune Suspension

There are a lot of reasons to shop at The Bike Company (BikeCo.com). Some are: Unmatched attention to detail. Incredible after sales setup follow up. Pro Tune Suspension.

Our team works with the FOX fork and shock lineup to take the already great FOX suspension to the next level. Working with our team of suspension tuners we will narrow the FOX performance window based on your size, riding style, terrain, ground speeds, aggression, goals and chassis.

What’s it mean to narrow the performance window? Well, each click is more precise. The fluid is hand picked for you. The bleed is more precise.

On trail your suspension will be more plush while maintaining the support and progression you need to really attack the trail.

For racers our tuned suspension subtracts seconds from your run. For pleasure riders it improves the traction and feel allowing you to progress quicker in your riding.

Ibis Exie: Comparative Bikes

The Exie is at home in XC Endurance and trail riding. 100mm rear travel with 120mm fork put it on the “smaller” side of full suspension bikes these days. Being made in the USA is a big sales point.

So, the Exie sits a bit in its own world frankly. But, what else should be on your review list

Ibis’ Ripley is a slightly larger bike with a similar personality thanks to the DW Suspension. Yeti’s SB120 comes in as a “bigger” bike more with higher speed and gnar capacity as well.

Mondraker’s Raze parallels the Ripley and 120 as slightly bigger in personality than the Exie. The Mondraker Podium however is an interesting bike similar to the Exie that you may want to review.
