Introducing the Exie for all. Sharing the same geometry and performance as the World Cup winning Exie USA, the newest offering is hand built in Vietnam. It’s everything loved about the US made offering in a wallet-friendly build. Whether you’re racing short track or on a multi day epic, the Exie’s seat tube angles allows you to harness your strongest muscles, while reducing any potential knee or wrist strain. Ibis also steepened the seat tube angles as the frames get larger, to allow riders with different inseams to achieve the same riding positions. Don’t squander a single watt. The dw-link suspension platform offers incredible climbing efficiency and traction along with plush, downhill-crushing goodness. The Exie use bushings where it makes sense and bearings where it doesn’t. The IGUS bushings in the lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance free. Ibis also added features like a threaded bottom bracket to help make any future maintenance easy. Internal cable routing doesn’t have to be a pain. Ibis has added internal tubes to their tubes, no picksets, flashlights, or swear words required. 2.4” Tire clearance means you can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, you’re not limited by width.
The Ripley is the snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29” trail bike. Its combination of modern geometry, a stiff lightweight carbon chassis, and 120mm of ultra efficient dw-link travel, means it’s equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all day epics. LONGER, SLACKER, STEEPER With its well balanced modern geometry, the Ripley is ready for any adventure. The long front end, slack head angle, and short rear end gives you the confidence to try new lines, while the steep seat tube angle and shorter offset fork makes it easy to maneuver technical climbs and flowy singletrack. REVISED SWINGARM The Ripley V4S features a new UDH dérailleur for maximum future compatibility and moves to a 55mm chain line. The wider chain line allows for a stiffer chainstay.
The Ripley AF is the beloved, category-defying, short-travel, singletrack-scorching Ripley - rendered in aluminum, with more aggressive geometry. All the sizzle and pop of the carbon Ripley, now available as a complete bike at a wallet friendly price. A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle and short (44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels makes for a super planted but still playful front end feel. A 76-degree seat angle puts your power directly to the pedals, while the short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics deliver that power without squandering a single watt. The 15-year collaboration with Dave Weagle has yielded yet another bike with unparalleled climbing efficiency and tractability. Incredible snap and responsiveness are its trademarks, and a whole mess of plush, chunder-eating, downhill-crushing goodness gets thrown in for good measure. Wrap that together and you get the best suspension you’ll find anywhere. It’s that good.
The Ripmo AF (Aluminum Frame) brings the award-winning performance of the carbon Ripmo to a wider, rowdier audience. It’s everything we love from the carbon Ripmo, plus a few tweaks. Over a long tenure from mountain biking’s awkward adolescence to its current anything-shreddy era, we’ve experimented with steel, aluminum and titanium?—?remember the Bow-Ti, the first superbike? We remember the metal times too, and it feels good to offer a premium ride experience to the broadening family of riders, courtesy of durable, affordable aluminum alloy. With a steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratospheric reach, the Ripmo AF places riders centrally and upright over the bottom bracket. It makes for an efficient position that can go the long haul without placing too much weight on its slack, 64.9-degree headtube angle. A 44mm reduced-offset fork is more surefooted on steep descents and steadies high speeds. Better up, better down.
