Ibis Hakka MX Adventure Bike Rolls Out Fun New Colors

Ibis calls the Hakka MX its “answer to the swiss army knife.”

The Hakka MX boasts versatile geometry and has enough clearance to run up to 700 x 40c or 27.5 x 2.1-inch tires. Ibis encourages users to take the bike on anything from road rides to multi-day bikepacking trips.

Dropper post compatibility aids in the versatility, and the bike runs fine on a variety of drivetrains.

So there’s really no reason not to take it out into the muck. Unless that is, you don’t want to get dirt all over the fancy new paint Ibis slapped onto this year’s models.

Ibis Hakka MX: New colors

The three new frame colors come with fun names. There’s Wizard’s Potion (lavender and purple), Salt Water Taffy (white and coral) and Sacre Blue (blue/green).

Let’s start with Wizard’s Potion, because we firmly believe more bike frames should come in purple.

Next up: Salt Water Taffy — a clean, neutral look with pops of color at strategic locations.

Finally, there’s Sacre Blue, darker overall, with bands of blue and yellow along the fork and seat tube.

I wish they’d update this with a slacker front end and steeper seat angle in the larger sizes, 1.5″ / 1.5″ straight head tube and a touch more wheelbase. This design is 6 years old now …

A good design will never be old. Have a closer look to the Porsche 911.

Do you really need a steeper seat tube angle.

Every time I ride my Hakka, I come away with the same feeling of how well they nailed the overall feel of this bike. For my tastes (mostly single track), I don’t think it can get any better.

The Fairlight Secan is being offered in a killer purple (Iridescent Plum) right now. 😉

I just wish they had kept the wonderful six year old graphics…

Most fun I’ve had on trails, when not too rooty, was with my cyclocross bikes. Most people don’t go bike packing and this is the type of geo you want for a quick agile bike.
