Product Description

Ripmo GX Eagle Factory Mountain Bike by Ibis

The Ibis Ripmo V2 is developed under the rigors of competition, with Ibis working extensively alongside their professional riders to ensure the Ripmo Version 2 meets the increasing demands of modern enduro courses while remaining a great bike for the day-to-day trail rider. Capable of winning world-class enduro races, yet lively enough to pedal around our own backyard trails, the Ripmo makes an absolutely fantastic one-bike quiver. The Ripmo V2 has a more progressive shock rate that ramps up near the end of the stroke, preventing harsh bottom-outs when we're charging through rock gardens and airing over drops. At the same time, the initial stroke is suppler to improve small-bump sensitivity and smooth out chattery sections of the trail. Downhill enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the new bike is now compatible with coil shocks thanks to this revised shock rate. Ibis nailed the geometry on the first Ripmo, so the V2 only sees minor tweaks to give the bike some extra stability when the trail points downhill. This comes in the form of a 1-degree slacker head tube angle, moving to 64. 9-degrees compared to 65. 9 on the original model. The reach is also increased by a few millimeters, rounding things off with a nice modern 475mm on a size large. These numbers let us open it up a bit more on high-speed descents, but maintain the same lively handling and precise cornering the Ripmo was famous for. Riding bikes isn't all downhill, so considering that most of us have to earn our turns, Ibis gives the Ripmo V2 the same uncanny climbing abilities as its predecessor. A lot of this has to do with the ultra-efficient DW-Link suspension platform, but a big part is the steep 76-degree seat tube angle that naturally shifts our weight forward in the saddle. This puts us in a comfortable position for putting power to the pedals and keeps the front wheel from wandering on steep climbs. If we were to ride the Ripmo and Ripmo V2 back to back, we wouldn't notice any differenc...
