The new IBIS HD3 is out soon, but we wanted to draw attention the this little guy. The IBIS HDR650 is a very capable and versatile trail bike, with a little less travel and a lighter duty build this mid travel rig is ready for anything. if you have been torn between a big hitting 150mm travel bike and a zippy 125-130mm bike, this HDR650 might just be for you. with 130mm out back and 140mm up front this bike strikes an interesting balance between climbing and descending. check out the specs and some of the details on this awesome trail bike.

XT shadow plus. nothing to say simply works.
XT brakes have become the benchmark for modern hydro disc brakes, with the matching XT shifter cleanly tucked up on the same clamp keeping your bar uncluttered and tidy. pair the full XT controls with a 740mm carbon bar and ultra light silicon grips you have a very nice cockpit.
