With its well balanced modern geometry, the new 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.
We had a chance to take one of these out to Cherokee and O’ Bannon recently and were very impressed with how fast it accelerated and how quickly it got up the climbs. The amount of traction is very impressive. Since 2005, IBIS have 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.
