WHAT'S A RIPMO?
The Ripmo is a bike we've been wanting to make for a while now. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley's balance and speed, coupled with the Mojo HD4's capabilities when things get hairy. It's the bike that our Enduro World Series winning team will be using to defend their World Championship crown, so we pulled out all the stops.
With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of efficient dw-link rear wheel travel (160mm front), this is the most versatile bike we’ve ever built.
It also marks a dramatic shift in our approach to geometry. The reach is nearly an inch longer than the EWS Team winning HD4, with clearance for a 175mm dropper, and a pedal-friendly 76° seat tube angle. The end result is a bike that’s ready to rally, while still maintaining lively handling.
Ticking off the boxes, other features include 2.6” tire clearance, short chainstays, a threaded BB, trick internal cable routing and the ability to run both a piggyback reservoir shock and large water bottle.
120MM OF WONDER.
For many of us working at Ibis, the Ripley has been our favorite bike since the day it came out. And indeed, if you look at the reviews, you’ll see that we weren't alone. Still, riding styles and components are constantly evolving so we updated it to add to its already amazing versatility.
NEW! LONGER AND SLACKER GEOMETRY OPTION
The Ripley is now available in two geometry configurations. The Ripley LS features a 15mm longer top tube and is available in Medium, Large and XL sizes, and the LS also features a slack 67.5 degree head angle. This allows for shorter stems and adds stability at speed. The second geometry iteration is identical to the original Ripley. So the original nimble handling geometry that redefined how a 29er could corner is still available (in medium and large sizes).
4TH GENERATION OF AWESOME.
The fourth generation Mojo HD (HD4) builds upon the Mojo legacy and has a redesigned geometry that focuses on stability and speed. Longer reach, better big hit compliance and a stiffer chassis makes for an excellent enduro or aggressive trail bike.
THE HAKKALÜGI, WHILE TECHNICALLY A CYCLOCROSS BIKE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN MUCH MORE.
Our original Hakkalügi cyclocross frame (current holder of the 2012 UCI rainbow stripes in the Masters 45 category) now has a sibling, the Hakkalügi Disc. The frame is all new and utilizes all of the latest technologies in componentry and carbon manufacturing.
