Active ingredients include: 29" wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides. 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. IT'S METAL Over our 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 our broadening family of riders, courtesy of durable, affordable aluminum alloy. MODERN GEOMETRY 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. DW LINK Since 2005, we've partnered with suspension guru, Dave Weagle, on the dw-link suspension platform. It provides an unparalleled combination of climbing efficiency and downhill performance, which has been proven repeatedly at the highest levels of racing. COIL COMPATIBLE The Ripmo AF is compatible with both coil and air shocks due to a more progressive leverage rate. It allows for coil's linearity to thrive and we spec air shocks with tunes that provide pop without feeling too harsh. On the trail, it gives the suspension a supple feel throughout the entirety of the stroke, enhancing traction no matter how deep you dig. DVO Now that we made the frames leverage rate progressive enough for a coil we had to find a coil shock that could handle the increased stress of being driven off of a clevis. The DVO JadeX is up to the challenge so the Ripmo AF comes with custom-tuned DVO suspension. 2.6" TIRE CLEARANCE Ibis helped pioneer the wide rim revolution, which inspired the new crop of wider 2.4" – 2.6" tires. When paired together, this combo can be run at ultra-low pressures, which results in elbow-dragging cornering traction without sacrificing straight-line speed. PICK YOUR SIZE We use words like small, medium, and large to describe our sizing, because it's easy to understand, but our ultra-low standovers give you the ability to size your frame based on reach and preference. LONG DROPPER POST What's better than a dropper post? A longer one. Our frames are designed to accommodate the longest dropper posts possible. Riders over 5'8" (or 173cm) can easily run a 185mm dropper post, while folks between 5' and 5'8" (152cm – 172cm) can use a post 125mm or longer, depending on inseam length. REMOVABLE ISCG05 MOUNT Our optional ISCG 05 mount is there if you want it, removable if you don't.
The Ripley AF is our 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.

The Ripley is our 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 make it easy to maneuver technical climbs and flowy singletrack. DW LINK Since 2005, we've partnered with suspension guru, Dave Weagle, on the dw-link suspension platform. It provides an unparalleled combination of climbing efficiency and downhill performance, that has been proven repeatedly at the highest levels of racing. LONG DROPPER POST We use names like small, medium, and large to describe our sizing because it's easy to understand, but our ultra-low standovers and clearance for long droppers give you the ability to size based on reach. LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON, FOR EVERYONE Whether you order an XTR or NX kit, you'll get the same premium carbon fiber frame. All our bikes are built from the highest grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance. The Ripley weighs 5 lbs without the–shock. FORK OFFSET Sometimes, shorter is better. Instead of the typical 51mm offset, the new Ripley uses a 44mm offset. This gives you the stability of a slacker head angle while retaining the BMX like feel of, well, a Ripley. 2.6" TIRE CLEARANCE We pioneered the wide rim revolution a few years ago and inspired a new crop of wider 2.4" – 2.6" tires. When paired together, this combo can be run at ultra-low pressures that produce elbow-dragging cornering traction without sacrificing speed. REMOVABLE ISCG05 MOUNT There if you want it, removable if you don't. INTERNAL CABLE TUNNELS Internal cable routing used to be a pain in the ass, but our internal tubes make routing easy. Just pop the housing through and it comes out the other end, no need for swear words or a pickset. REPLACEABLE DOWNTUBE PROTECTOR Our removable polycarbonate skid plate protects your downtube from sharp pointy things.

What if we took everybody's favorite bike and made it a little slacker and little longer? Hell, what if we made it more progressive and coil compatible? And, that's exactly what we did for the Ripmo V2. Active ingredients include: 29" wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides. The Ripmo and Ripmo AF share the same steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratospheric reach, which places riders centrally over the pedals. It makes for an efficient position that can go the long haul. The slack 64.9 headtube angle and 44mm reduced-off set fork doesn't wander while climbing, and doesn't hold you back descending. It works—all day up, all day down, all day in between. TRACTION TUNE Our custom-tuned front and rear suspension feature extra-light high-speed compression and rebound damping to deliver unparalleled traction. This allows the wheels to flutter through terrain like a trophy truck storming through a set of whoops. COIL COMPATIBLE The Ripmo V2 is compatible with both coil and air shocks due to a more progressive leverage rate. On the trail, it gives the suspension a supple feel throughout the entirety of the stroke, enhancing traction no matter how deep you dig. DROPPER POST CLEARANCE Mo' dropper, mo' better. On small frames, you can run 125 – 150mm, depending on your preference and inseam length. On Medium, Large, and X-Large, a 160mm—or, why not run a 185mm? Our shorter seat-tube lengths and low standovers allow you to choose your size based on your reach preference. TIRE CLEARANCE You can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, know that you're not limited by width. BUSHINGS Tired of hitting "purchase" on another set of bearings each season? So were we. That's why we use bushings where they make sense, and bearings where they don't. The IGUS bushings in our lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance-free. We believe so strongly in them, we back them with a free lifetime replacement. LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON FOR EVERYONE All our bikes are built from the highest-grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance-no matter how much you spend. The Ripmo weighs a svelte 6.25 lbs with a DPX2 shock, and complete builds start at 28 lbs. INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING Bikes that look pretty on the outside should look pretty on the inside. We use carbon fiber tubes molded within each frame. Push the cable in, watch it pop out, a beautiful moment indeed. REMOVABLE ISCG MOUNT So, you're too fast for narrow-wide chain retention on its own? Challenge accepted. Our removable ISCG tabs allow shredders to bolt on a chain guide, while the rest of us can shave grams. PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT A polycarbonate downtube protector deflects debris, while molded rubber swing arm protectors keep things quiet and clean. And, our simple-yet-elegant linkage protectors stop mud and rocks thrown by the tire, keeping your beautiful bike beautiful.

SIZE SPECIFIC SEAT ANGLES 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. We've also steepened the seat tube angles as the frames get larger, to allow riders with different inseams to achieve the same riding positions. DW-LINK SUSPENSION Don't squander a single watt. Our dw-link suspension platform offers incredible climbing efficiency and traction along with plush, downhill-crushing goodness. RIDE MORE, WRENCH LESS We use bushings where it makes sense and bearings where it doesn't. The IGUS bushings in our lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance free. We've also added features like a threaded bottom bracket to help make any future maintenance easy. INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING Internal cable routing doesn't have to be a pain. We've added internal tubes to our tubes, no picksets, flashlights, or swear words required. 2.4” TIRE CLEARANCE You can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, you're not limited by width. 2X BOTTLE CLEARANCE The Exie has clearance for two water bottles inside the front triangle on every size frame. INTEGRATED CHAIN GUIDE Drop the hammer, not your chain. SEVEN YEAR WARRANTY If it's our fault, we'll fix it. Simple as that.
