Ibis recently pulled the curtains back on a bike they’ve been working on for some time, and the release date couldn’t have come at a better time, with Robin Wallner piloting the new bike to a 3rd place podium finish yesterday at the opening round of the Enduro World series in Chile. Dubbed the Ripmo, the new bike is a long travel 29″ wheeled enduro bike. This is the first time, in our opinion, that Ibis have truly pushed the long/slack boundaries of geometry with reach numbers that actually are on the long side, paired to a slack 66º head angle. The Ripmo features 145mm of travel out back and is spec’d with a 160mm fork. This new bike is available as a frame only, and at 5 different spec levels in sizes Small through Extra Large. We’ll be jumping aboard a demo bike in the very near future, so stay tuned for our thoughts on the Ripmo…
