Back and ready for the cyclocross season for 2011 is the Ibis Hakkalügi. With its greatly reduced weight, the frame features enhanced accelerations and reduced tedious shouldering during repetitive dismounts. Partly due to the sleek tube joints, the Hakkalugi is constructed as a carbon fiber monocoque structure.

Light weight and uncompromising strength are guaranteed by the entire frame, which is not only made with pre-impregnated carbon fiber sheet but also hand-rolled around silicone forms. Moreover, the frame was put and thoroughly baked into a steel mold to achieve unified structure.

Ready to tackle dirt roads, trail rides, and the severity of cyclocross is the 2011 Ibis Hakkalugi Cyclocross Frame. It is available in six sizes from 47 to 61cm and in two colors, Black Lung and Phlegmish Yellow. Required for the frame is a Campagnolostyle Hiddenset headset.
