Ibis has created a new niche for themselves with their versatile trail bike the Mojo, but it was missing some key features that are now standard on most trail bikes. The new Mojo SL-R solves that problem by providing consumers a Mojo but with new performance enhancing upgrades needed in a burly trail bike.
It is amazing how versatile some mountain bikes have truly become. Ibis's new Mojo SL-R is a top-notch example of just how adaptable a 5.5" travel can be. Featuring a tapered headtube, 142mm rear thru-axle, BB92 bottom bracket, and all new carbon molding technology, the SL-R is the cutting edge for trail bikes. Built with lightweight components it weighs in at around 22.4 pounds and pedals up hill as well as most XC bikes.

The Slightly Longer of It-Mills Peak!
This year, the raffle proceeds are specifically targeting the almost finished and totally excellent Mills Peak Trail, in the Lakes Basin above Downieville. Proceeds from the last Ibis raffle were used to buy an excavator that helped build most of this trail. It’s now 90% done and did we mention it is excellent? Oh yes we did. If we do say so ourselves, this is a trail that you must see, our crack team of trail studs has created a work of art disguised as a trail. It is really fun to ride.
Why Ibis Supports SBTS
The health of the environment, the local community, and the economy of that local community are all tied together. Preservation of the environment in the area can lead to greater economic opportunities for the local community. The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship provides local employment and educational outreach to the local community. By employing Plumas and Sierra County residents (up to 15 full time trail builders) and maintaining the existing trail system, the Stewardship can sustain long-term recreational tourism, which in turn would benefit local families and businesses
Why You Should Buy Not One But Many Raffle Tickets
It’s simple math, the more tickets you buy, the more chances you have to win this Ibis Mojo SL-R. And more importantly, the more feet/meters/cubits/miles/light years of trails will get built as a result of your generosity.
How This Raffle Works
