Ripley 29 Full Suspension Frame - 2016
Whether you’ve been under the Ripley’s spell for years now or you’re building up a dream bike after years of riding stock parts, trust the Ripley Mountain Bike Frame to deliver enduro confidence far beyond its XC/trail roots. From machine-built flow to old school singletrack, this version of the Ripley has grown up and it’s hungry for terrain befitting of its new enduro physique. With a longer top tube and slacker head tube angle, the Ripley craves committing lines and weekends on slickrock, but it manages to retain the quickness that earned it such a devoted following.
Prepare to run out of excuses on your regular climbing loops. Sure, you’re getting a slacker bike with a greater affinity for enduro, but Ibis meticulously shapes the Ripley from the same monocoque carbon layup as its predecessors. The frame feels feathery on climbs, and the precise manufacturing process eliminates the need for filler or excess material to hit impressive strength-to-weight ratios.
