2020 Ibis Ripmo V2
Please note, Ripmo V2 is backordered until September.
Anyone who may have given the Ibis Ripmo AF a test ride could have likely predicted what an updated Carbon Ripmo would look and feel like. And with the Ibis Ripmo V2, those clairvoyants have been proven pretty much right. Carbon, lightweight, durable, these are all things that the Ripmo has been before. But added to that, the Ripmo V2 has incorporated many of the most successful features that turned the Ripmo AF into an enduro fun machine.
Slyly tested over the course of the pro enduro EWS racing circuit by Ibis athlete Robin Wallner, there is no question that the Ibis Ripmo V2 is up to the highest racing standards. But what will really sell you on this V2 is just how much pleasure it will bring to your riding, not only downhill, but up as well. The downhill supremacy has been aided by the fact that they have made the head angle a full degree slacker, a smidgen longer, and then ramped up the progressive end rate of the rear suspension which pretty much eliminates bottom out, even for the hardest of chargers. As a long travel 29er, you’ll get 160mm suspension up front and the 147mm dw-link rear travel. Since we’re talking a Dave Weagle developed linkage system, there is no question that you can expect it to be seriously efficient and progressive. And with that progressive end stroke the Ripmo V2 also offers coil-shock compatibility.
Low maintenance IGUS bushings have been used in the lower link to increase torsional rigidity, and keeping the weight low. Bearings remain in the upper link where they’ll work best with the rotation and load requirements. Airtight seals protect the bushings from spray and muck, decreasing service needs and increasing lifetime. Weagle’s suspension systems offer the desired sensitivity that will keep your tires gripping the trail, giving you the stability needed to power through rougher patches, and then the progressiveness to make it all feel bottomless. Since the initial leverage ratio has been made a little higher with the V2, the small bump performance will eliminate all traces of trail chatter. And since you’ll be able to wrap your 29ers in 2.6 inch tires, the grip will be endless.
If you look at the V2’s geo numbers, you might be forgiven for focusing on just how epic it will respond to DH trails, but the climbing capabilities stand out on the V2 as well. The steep 76° head tube angle gets you easily into position when you need to rocket up a climb, while the 44mm fork offset and corresponding 118mm trail helps keep the handling snappy on technical sections. Whether you love to shred, or find deep-seated satisfaction in churning your way up a mountain, the Ripmo V2 will give you the tools to succeed. And since this is a hugely capable bike, likely to encourage you to try the most demanding trails, Ibis has been sure to beef up the level of frame protection. Nobody wants to ding up a gorgeous carbon frame like this. So there are linkage guards to protect the lower and upper linkages, cleverly tucked between the front and rear triangles. There’s also a polycarbonate downtube protector.
Ibis sticks with their tried and true threaded 73mm BSA bottom bracket, while the frame is ISCG 05 compatible with a removable adapter. The V2 is also 1X specific. Since this is definitely a bike you are going to want to rip down some trails on, the M-XL sizes can fit 170mm+ dropper posts, while the S size can accommodate 125-150mm posts. The internal cable routing keeps the lines clean, and since Ibis has developed very clever in-frame molded cable tunnels, routing the wires is no longer an experiment in frustration management.
The Ibis Ripmo V2 is an enduro racing machine that still likes to party. Available in four sizes and two color combos, it’s a bike that turns the stoke up to 11.
