    This bike is a part of Ibis history -- made to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and the launch of the first bike made in their new Santa Cruz factory! This bike was built entirely in the U.S. with components hand-picked by CEO Hans Heim.

    When Ibis says they built 40 of these spe­cial bikes, they kin­da mean 50. They made an extra 10 for employ­ees and bike shop own­ers. You can tell these are extra spe­cial (empha­sis on extra) because these are labeled 04041404240 and so on. Check out ours at 4540.

    Features: 

    The 40th Exie build kit fea­tures the 60g Hyper­stem from the Ital­ian wiz­ards at Extralite. This engi­neer­ing mar­vel is tough enough to car­ry an enduro rat­ing, even though it’s one of the light­est stems available.

    Sus­pen­sion duties are per­formed by the new Fox 34 Step­cast which weighs an unbe­liev­able 3.30 lb / 1496 g. 

    For wheels, they laced their Ibis S28 rims to Indus­try Nine Hydra Hubs in a love­ly shade of blue. At 405g, the rims are light enough for cross coun­try use, but tough enough for trail rid­ing. Capa­ble yet light.

    Sharp eyes may notice the mis­matched tires. While some may con­sid­er it a car­di­nal sin, it comes down to per­for­mance. Up front, the 2.4” Maxxis Rekon Race deliv­ers light­weight, excel­lent trac­tion. It’s paired with a Con­ti­nen­tal Race King in the rear, which actu­al­ly is the fastest tire the folks at Ibis have ever tested.

    Dri­ve­train duties are per­formed by Shimano’s crisp-shift­ing XTR dri­ve­train. There’s noth­ing that per­forms on the same lev­el when shift­ing under pow­er at race pace. 

    The Cane Creek eeW­ings cranks not only look spec­tac­u­lar, but they are super strong, stiff, and light­weight. Over the years, Hans has bro­ken half a dozen light­weight cranks. In addi­tion to being frag­ile, these prod­ucts tend to creak after a few months of reg­u­lar rid­ing. How­ev­er, his orig­i­nal set of eeW­ings are still spin­ning smooth and qui­et after 4,500 miles of KOM-chas­ing abuse.

    Per­haps the coolest indi­vid­ual com­po­nent on the 40th is the cus­tom Bike Yoke 125mm Divine SL Drop­per. Nor­mal­ly, the SL is only avail­able as an 80mm drop­per. At 405 g (for a 31.6mm post), it is the light­est ful­ly adjustable drop­per post on the mar­ket. 

    This is a dream-worthy build that can be ridden hard for years to come!
