Ibis Ripley Gets a Revamp1 min read

Launched as a full-suspension 29er back in 2001, the Ripley is now in its fourth iteration. The newest edition pays homage with its Blue Steel color scheme beyond that it’s a lot different than the original. The V4 Ripley features an all-new, ground-up redesign inspired by Ibis’ Ripmo.

According to Ibis, “The Ripley is our snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29” trail bike. Its combination of modern geometry, a stiff lightweight carbon chassis, and 120mm of ultra efficient DW-link travel, means it’s equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all day epics.”

The Ripley has 120mm of rear travel provided by DW-link linkage, a platform that can also be found on Pivot and Turner bikes. Up front, the Ripley sports a 130mm Fox 34 fork with a 44mm offset. Ibis claims the fork adds stability while allowing the Ripley to have a slacker 66.5 ° head angle compared to a typical 55mm offset.

The Ripley is available in sizes S-XL, with the M-XL compatible with 170mm+ droppers, and the small with 125-150mm posts. Other features include a polycarbonate downtube protector, molded rubber swing arm protectors, 203mm max rotor size, and a single bottle cage mount inside the lower triangle with full-size bottle capability.
