With the chunky lines and burly rock gardens strewn through today's enduro courses it really was only a matter of time before 29ers started to take a hold on the gravity-oriented market. Capable of bulldozing through root-laden tree lines and surging at higher speeds, 29ers are capable of taking on the big and burly terrain with surprising ease, so it's no surprise that the designers at Ibis have been working away to find a perfect 29er enduro sled like the Ripmo X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. Defending Ibis' 2017 EWS Championship, the Ripmo hits the trail to do the dirty work with the ideal geometry to conquer gnarly lines packed with ultra-steep pitches, while maintaining its ability to push up climbs for round two of mud-splattered ear-to-ear grins and good times. As you probably guessed from its name, the Ripmo is the mashup of the hard-charging Mojo HD4 and the lively handling Ripley. As such, the Ripmo retains the larger 29-inch wheels of the Ripley, but falls more towards the longer, slacked-out end of the spectrum inhabited by the Mojo HD4. Delving into geometry specifics, you'll find the Ripmo has a quite slack 65. 9-degree head tube angle paired with a 44-millimeter fork offset that makes it inherently more stable at high speeds. Ibis chose this custom fork offset to increase the bike's trail, which makes it a bit slower to respond to steering inputs, subsequently making it more stable at the higher speeds you'll experience while enduro racing and aggressively pummeling down steep trails. This way, Ibis was able to design the Ripmo with the stability of a bike with an even slacker head tube angle (they claim it's as stable as bikes with head tubes in the mid 64-degree arena), but without requiring a drastic increase in wheelbase figures, which would compromise its ability to get around hairpin corners and tighter sections of trail. Another trick that Ibis employs is a steeper seat tube angle of 76 degrees, which shifts your weight forward. This w...
