We’ve been looking through sales, rental and website data we collected last year and here are our best mountain bikes of 2023. You’ll find three top-five mountain bike lists below – our top-five most-rented mountain bikes, top-five best-selling mountain bikes, and the top-five most-viewed mountain bike pages on our website.
Best Selling Mountain Bikes of 2023
Our best-selling mountain bike in 2023 was the Rocky Mountain Element. The Rocky Element is what’s often called a, “down country bike,” because of its short travel and downhill-friendly geometry. That’s a potent combination here in Southern Utah where our favorite rides feature lots of punchy technical climbs and steep, rocky descents. The Rocky Mountain Element handles both very well. Click the photo below to visit our Rocky Mountain Element bike page and learn more about this fun and versatile bike.

Most-Popular Rental Mountain Bikes of 2023
Our most-popular rental mountain bike in 2023 was the Ibis Ripmo. Actually, it’s accurate to say the Ibis Ripmo was our most-popular mountain bike, period. That’s because it’s also at the top of our most-viewed bike pages list (below) and it was our second best-selling mountain bike. It shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone to see the Ripmo on all three of our top-five bike lists as it’s been one of our most popular bikes since the first version was introduced. The Ripmo’s longer-travel DW Link suspension paired with all-mountain geometry make it a perfect choice for our local Hurricane/Zion slickrock trails; and anywhere else, really.

Most-Viewed Mountain Bikes of 2023
If you compare the three top-five mountain bike lists here you’ll see our most-viewed mountain bike pages list is very different from the previous two. That’s because our best-selling and most-rented bikes are determined by availability and pricing as well as what people want. There are a whole bunch of other factors that determine the most-viewed pages on our website. It might be best to look at bike page popularity as what mountain bikes people across the globe are curious about or see as their potential dream bikes. There are also web-nerd technical reasons for page popularity, like SEO (Search Engine Optimization), whether a popular website links to a particular bike, and how much we promote a given bike page. In any case, this list is pretty different from the others – except for the top bike…
As mentioned in the previous list, the most-viewed mountain bike page on our website in 2023 was the Ibis Ripmo; and it’s arguably our most-popular bike, overall. If you didn’t already read it, go back up to our most-rented list for a little more on why the Ripmo is so popular. Or click the photo below to visit our Ibis Ripmo bike page.
