Bashing through corners and pedaling up technical terrain is rarely the same type of fun, but on the Ibis Ripmo SLX Mountain Bike, we can be confident going over any trail. The Ripmo uses a supportive 147mm of rear travel and slacked-out geometry to rip through the downhills. On the climbs, the DW-link-powered suspension linkage doesn't punish us for putting in hard pedaling efforts. Whether rallying for long days at the bike park or on the pedals the Ripmo is a certified trail beast and begs for us to push hard all ride long. Ibis nailed the geometry on the first Ripmo, so the V2 only sees minor tweaks to give the bike some extra stability when the trail points downhill. This comes in the form of a 1-degree slacker head tube angle, moving to 64. 9-degrees compared to 65. 9 on the original model. With the already impressively lightweight carbon frame, this version of the Ripmo includes a smooth and responsive Shimano drivetrain built for long days on the trail. Fox Factory suspension caps off the build, pairing an enduro-ready amount of travel with the 'bottomless feel' of the DW-link suspension linkage. *Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
