Ibis Oso E-Bike Description

Ibis Ripmo lovers take notice – if you’ve been fantasizing about e-bikes, the Ibis Oso E-MTB is the bike you’ve been dreaming of. Oso is Spanish for, “bear;” and for their first E-MTB, Ibis built a beast of a bike. Imagine a longer, slacker Ripmo with more travel and a Bosch Performance Line CX pedal-assist motor so you can do multiple after-work laps or go exploring in the backcountry. It even has built-in head and tail lights to help you make it home when you stay out too late and have to pedal out in the dark. More – that’s what the Ibis Oso E-MTB is all about.

Like all Ibis full-suspension mountain bikes, the Ibis Oso e-bike uses the popular DW Link suspension system. Large and XL Ibis Oso bikes have 29-inch wheels and the medium and small sizes are mixed-wheel bikes (mullet) with 29er wheels in front and 27.5 wheels in the rear. The Oso is a big bike, with 155mm of travel in the rear and a 170mm Fox 38 fork. If that’s not enough for you, it’s approved for 170mm in the rear and a 190mm dual crown in the front. As you’d expect from an Ibis bike, the Oso is an excellent climber with great uphill traction – especially with the benefit of the Bosch pedal-assist motor. Of course, with all that travel and the long, slack geometry the Ibis Oso is happiest when you point it downhill in steep, chunky terrain. On the other hand, you might be surprised how the pedal-assist motor can make climbs just as fun as a good descent.

Who’s the Ibis Oso for? When e-bikes first became available they were marketed to the elderly and people with disabilities. Of course, they’re great for those purposes. However, E-MTBs have also turned out to be useful and fun for people on tight schedules who want to get in a real ride after work, beginners who want to keep up with experienced friends, and mountain bikers who don’t want to drive to the trailhead or use motor vehicles to shuttle. E-bikes are also great for people who want to do bigger rides.

As we write this, we have medium and large Ibis Oso E-MTBs available in our rental fleet. If you haven’t tried a pedal-assist mountain bike yet, come rent one and try it out on our Southern Utah mesa trails. If you’re an experienced rider who likes rocky trails, take the Ibis Oso on a self-shuttled Grafton DH lap – or three. If you’re more of a flowy singletrack rider, try the Ibis Oso out on the Hurricane Rim Trail. It’s a long, pedally ride with lots of rolling trail and just a bit of rocky tech to keep things interesting. Regardless of what trails you choose to ride, you’ll have a great time on the Ibis Oso and want more.
