Jeff Kendall-Weed:

Jenson USA Rider

Most every mountain bike rider has at least one hero or an icon that inspires them to ride, to try new things, to push them in skill and style. Jeff Kendall-Weed is high on our list of inspiring riders. We’ve been lucky enough to partner with Jeff and support his move into the world of content creation. We’re stoked to have a part in helping Jeff create inspiring and informative content for his YouTube channel, Instagram account,and the Kendall Vs. Kendall Podcast.

ATHLETE PROFILE

Jeff Kendall-Weed's riding is on another level, with an eye for highly unique lines, unimaginable transfers, and more wheelies, manuals, and stoppies per square foot than seems possible.  Jeff combines trials and BMX with a downhill and enduro race background to create his own style.  Don’t be surprised if you watch his videos on repeat just to comprehend what you saw!

Jeff’s inspiring awesomeness isn’t just limited to his unbelievable skills and style on the trails.  He brings heaps of stoke to the bike community and has been an icon of racing and advocacy while also being a longtime veteran within the bike industry, managing sales for companies like Ibis Cycles and WTB.  Currently, Jeff is wading deep into the world of MTB content creation and is generating tons of content that ranges from tech videos, how-to's, trail highlights, and product reviews.  Jeff’s favorite content avenue is in collaborating with successful advocacy groups to help unite the mountain bike community as a whole. 

 With a long history working in the bike industry, and a knack for pushing the envelope of what’s possible in riding, Jeff’s choice of sponsors and products he uses are reflective of their quality, function, and reliability.  We’re stoked to work with Jeff, and want to share the brands and products that compose Jeff’s bike garage.

We, at Jenson USA, love a good podcast nearly as much as we love spending time on our bikes, so it seemed like divine intervention when our own Seth Kendall wanted to pair up to do an "all things bike" podcast with Jeff Kendall-Weed. In the Kendall vs. Kendall podcast, we delve into the bike industry, hot new trends and products, influencial riders, and tips for becoming a better rider.

Every rider dreams of have their garage lined with a stable of bikes. Take a peak into Jeff's personal collection of bikes with their unique build specs that create bikes dialed in to meet Jeff's hard charging ride style and unique lines. From long travel brutes to snappy trail bikes, Jeff's garage of bikes has a bit of everything.

IBIS MOJO HD5

The Mojo HD5 is the longest legged bike in the Ibis lineup with 153mm of rear wheel travel and 170mm of buttery goodness from the fork. Built around 27.5" wheels, this bike toes the line between a full-on enduro racer and a nimble, fun, and madly efficient all mountain trail machine.

Built for: Enduro
Frame Travel: 153mm Rear, 170mm Front
Wheel Size: 27.5" up to 2.8" wide

Ibis Ripmo AF

The Ripmo AF took all the awesomeness of the Ripmo V1 carbon wonder bike and packaged it into an aluminum frame. Ibis added a slacker head tube and a more progressive leverage curve turning it into an efficient pedaler that is ready to get rowdy AF. It also has the rad side-effect of being impressively affordable too.

Built for: Enduro, All Mountain, Trail
Frame Travel: 145mm Rear, 160mm Front
Wheel Size: 29" up to 2.6" wide

IBIS RIPMO V2

The original version of the Ripmo shook up the world of rowdy 29ers that could hold their own on the climbs. Following on the success of the wildly popular Ripmo AF, the V2 version of Ibis's carbon wonderbike brings a slacker head angle and an improved leverage curve that makes the bike even more confident and fun while keeping you happy while pedaling to earn your turns.

Built for: Enduro, All Mountain, Trail
Frame Travel: 145mm Rear, 160mm Front
Wheel Size: 29" up to 2.6" wide

RIPLEY V4

The Ripley V4 is the latest iteration of Ibis's most efficient trail bike, but this isn't just a XC race bike. By adopting the linkage and frame styling of the Ripmo, Ibis was able to make this 120mm travel bike more fun than an lightweight pedal machine should be. Plus, you can pair it with a 140mm fork to add even more fun on the descents.

Built for: XC, Trail
Frame Travel: 130mm Front, 120mm Rear
Wheel Size: 29" up to 2.6" wide
