The new Ripley is here! And it's still the same snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29" trail bike it's always been, except it's better.
Taking everything learned from the Ripmo, Ibis updated the Ripley with cutting edge geometry, a stiff light carbon fiber chassis, and 120mm of ultra efficient dw-link travel - which means it's equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all day epics.
Longer, slacker, steeper
With its well balanced modern geometry, the Ripley is ready for any adventure. The long front end, slack head angle, and short rear end gives you the confidence to try new lines, while the steep seat tube angle and shorter offset fork makes it easy to maneuver technical climbs and flowy singletrack.
Since 2005, Ibis has partnered with suspension guru Dave Weagle on the dw-link suspension platform. It provides an unparalleled combination of climbing efficiency and downhill performance, that has been proven repeatedly at the highest levels of racing.
