Ever progressive, and always down for a good time, Ibis' Ripley is back for another generation that blurs the line between cross country rocketship and all-mountain fun machine. While Ibis' newest iteration of its Ripley X01 Eagle AXS Mountain Bike does see a full redesign that does include the modern longer-slacker-steeper treatment, we think it finds a moderate landing place that's still capable of quick-rolling power and nimble control in XC applications, while offering unwavering support when you head into chunkier, steeper terrain. That's because the engineers at Ibis didn't go too overboard -- instead they opt for just a one-degree shift in the head tube to slacken things, lengthening the wheelbase just a touch to extend the reach in the cockpit 45mm to give you a little more room to move around, while the seat tube shifts up 3-degrees for the perfect perch when you need to attack climbs. The Ripley 4 features an all-new chassis, taking queues from it's beefier brother, the Ripmo, which provides more room for dropper posts, shorter chainstays, and the lively and reliable DW-link suspension. Additionally, this bike features SRAM's latest and greatest Eagle AXS drivetrain that lets you enjoy crisp, wireless shifting with no need to bother with cables ever again. The Ripley 4's major update meant that Ibis' engineers could start from the ground up, and they chose to start with the heart-and-center of the bike, updating the dual-eccentrics used in the past to a new design based on the Ripmo, which still holds DW-Link suspension tucked neatly in the front triangle, but without as much weight, and with a huge boost in stiffness. This change in the frame's chassis allows massive weight savings of over a half-pound on the frame alone, giving your all-mountain machine a little more pep in its step when you're pushing up grueling climbs, and a more nimble feel when you're flicking it around tight switchbacks. Weight savings aside, one of the biggest benefits we see ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
