Ibis Introduces the RipmoAF (Aluminum Frame)

Following the success of the carbon fiber RipMo, Ibis has just released the RipMo AF, which stands for Aluminum Frame. The new bike takes on the latest geometry trend in the industry with a longer reach, slacker head angle and short offset fork. Aimed at being a bit more of a thresh bike, Ibis’ first fully suspended Aluminum bike features a re-positioned upper shock mount for a much more progressive rate, which allows it to work with both coil and air sprung rear shocks. Check out Christian Rigal getting rad on the bike in the edit below, then have a look at the details and specs further down.
