Product Description
Ripmo AF Coil Mountain Bike Frame by Ibis
There's no question that we love the Ibis Ripmo. It's an efficient climber, a stable descender, and playful enough to throw around when you're trying out new trail features and making your own lines down the mountain. In a surprising departure from their typical carbon wonder bikes, Ibis decided to bring the impressive performance of the Ripmo to a wider audience with the new Ripmo AF. This affordable aluminum steed builds off the success of the Ripmo, but comes with a few tweaks that push it a little further toward the rowdy side of things. In addition to the burly aluminum frame, the Ripmo AF gets a 1-degree slacker head tube angle for some extra stability when you point the bike downhill, as well as a more progressive suspension curve that provides a little more bottom out resistance for bigger hits. This new leverage ratio is what allows Ibis to spec the frame with the esteemed DVO Jade coil shock for a more planted feel in rough terrain. Like its ritzier carbon sibling, the Ripmo AF continues the trend of mashing together the big-hit craving Mojo HD4 and its livelier cousin, the Ripley. The result is a steed that rolls on 29-inch wagon wheels that soars through technical chunder, but with the longer slacker geometry that crushes steeps with steady confidence. Geometry wise, you'll find that the Ripmo AF sits close to the Ripmo, only stretching out slightly with the head tube that delves deeper to 64. 9-degrees from the 65. 9-degrees of the Ripmo, which still pairs up with a 44-millimeter offset fork that feels planted and steady at high speeds through rowdy terrain. Ibis chose this 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 AF with the stability of a bike with an even slacker head tube angle, but without requiring a dra...

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.
