The New Ibis Ripley AF – Southern Utah Ride Report

Posted on

Join us for an Ibis Ripley AF Southern Utah ride report!  In 2019, Ibis surprised mountain bikers with an aluminum version of their super popular Ripmo 29er enduro bike. Offering comparable performance at a much lower price, the aluminum Ripmo AF was a huge success. Now, Ibis has done the same thing with their Ripley 29er XC trail bike. Introducing the new Ibis Ripley AF: a more affordable Ripley with an aluminum frame. The Ripley AF has 29-inch wheels, 120mm of travel in the back, a 130mm fork and the geometry has been stretched and slackened to make it happier on the descents. Best of all – you can buy a complete Ripley AF for as little as $2999. Ibis visited Hurricane in November and brought us a pre-production Ripley AF 29er to check out. Photo-John and Quentin took it out to JEM to get some action photos and to […]

The latest version, the Ibis Mojo 4, was launched recently and arrived at the shop a few weeks ago for our mountain bike rental fleet. As soon as we got our hands on the new Mojo we took it out to Gooseberry Mesa for an Ibis Mojo 4 first impressions ride: a classic ride for a classic bike, if you will. The modern trail bike was born in 2005 when the original Ibis Mojo mountain bike was introduced. At the time you pretty much had two choices for full-suspension mountain bikes – XC or downhill/freeride – steep angles with short travel or slack and squishy. The Ibis Mojo changed that with 140mm of travel, a sleek carbon frame and slacker, more aggressive geometry than most early to mid-2000s mountain bikes. Fifteen years later (has […]

Mountain Bike Wheelie in Southern Utah

Ibis recently announced a new Ripmo 29er with updated geometry and a retuned DW Link suspension system. The new Ibis Ripmo V2 takes the original Ripmo platform, stretches it out, improves the suspension and turns it into a legit enduro rig, ready to take on Enduro World Series race courses, bike parks and big mountain terrain. We got the new Ripmo V2 within a few days of the announcement and sent shop wrench Jordan Rarick out to Church Rocks to get a feel for how it compares to the original Ripmo.  Keep reading for our Ibis Ripmo V2 ride report. The original Ibis Ripmo has been one of our most popular mountain bikes. The combination of 29er rollover, new-school geometry and DW Link suspension made it a fantastically versatile and capable bike – especially for mountain bikers who don’t mind pedaling to get to the good stuff. That made the […]
