ibis EXIE 4OTH XTR Complete Bike , Frame # 39/40
The 40th Anniversary Ibis Exie is ready to fly. Right off the shelves, that is. Limited to just 40 bikes for the riding public, this is a very rare bird that won’t be around for long. OK, technically, there will be 50 Limited Edition bikes out there, but 10 of those have been reserved for Ibis employees, meaning if you want one of the remaining 40, you’d better act fast. The LE Exie rolls on custom wheels with Ibis S28 carbon rims laced to Industry Nine Hydra hubs in a matching blue. And that mis-matched tire spec? That’s not a mistake just for photos. Hans claims, “the rear of the Exie supports about 65% of your weight, so you can get away with a higher traction and slower rolling front tire as only 35% of your weight is on that end. Our rear tire spec is incredibly fast and saves 10w over similar rear tires. It provides a disproportionately large savings in rolling resistance.” That means the complete bikes will ship with a Maxis Rekon Race in a 29 x 2.4? WT up front and a Continental Race King in a 29 x 2.2? out back. Certainly unconventional, but apparently fast.
