Why you'll love the Ibis Ripmo

The Ripmo is more than just a trail bike, it is built to dominate steep trails whether climbing or descending flowy singletrack.

While not Ibis' bike designed for enduro mountain bike riding, the Ripmo still handles technical trails with competence. As you can see when looking at the specs, its geometry is lengthy, yet progressive which allows the Ripmo to speed along flat trails just as well as switchbacks and tight trails. Additionally, with the short seat tube, riders of the Ripmo can get low on the descent of technical trails. 

The Ripmo is available in a carbon or a more-affordable aluminum frame. Although heavier, the Ripmo AF carries itself very similarly to the pricier carbon model.

Ibis Ripley & Ibis Ripley AF

Ibis Ripley mountain bike

Why you'll love the Ibis Ripley

An Ibis Ripley is a nimble trail bike, designed with a short travel and a steep seat tube for efficient climbing. Given that the bike's geometry isn't too slack or steep, the Ripley can grind on all types of terrain. 

Like most of Ibis' bikes, the Ripley utilizes a dw-link suspension platform that provides stable pedaling and added stability at higher speeds. Despite the length present in its geometry, the Ripley feels light and lively on most trails. Overall, the Ripley is game on any trail you want to tackle, performing best as a snappy singletrack bike and a fleet climber. 

The Ripley is available in a carbon or a cheaper aluminum frame. Although heavier, the Ripley AF handles all trails nearly identical to its lighter counterpart.

Why you'll love the Ibis Exie

The Ibis Exie is a race-ready XC mountain bike built to shred technical race tracks at the World Cup-level. The 29-inch MTB is Ibis' foray into a lightweight, but sustainably-designed machine that checks in just above an impressive 22 pounds.

When looking at the Exie's geometry, Ibis bucks the common trend of an upright seat tube angle by a small margin in the hopes of giving riders the ability to conserve more energy on extended ascents and to maintain back tire traction on less steep climbs. On top of this, the carbon frame build of the Exie aims to be future proof in the world of cross country mountain biking as it balances between maximum strength and the weight limit Ibis placed on themselves.
