Ibis Ripmo GX Build
The Ripmo is a bike Ibis have been wanting to make for a while now. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley's balance and speed, coupled with the Mojo HD4's capabilities when things get hairy. It's the bike that their Enduro World Series winning team will be using to defend their World Championship crown, so they pulled out all the stops.
- With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of efficient dw-link rear wheel travel (160mm front), this is the most versatile bike they’ve ever built.
- It also marks a dramatic shift in approach to geometry. The reach is nearly an inch longer than the EWS Team winning HD4, with clearance for a 175mm dropper, and a pedal-friendly 76° seat tube angle. The end result is a bike that’s ready to rally, while still maintaining lively handling.
- Ticking off the boxes, other features include 2.6” tire clearance, short chainstays, a threaded BB, trick internal cable routing and the ability to run both a piggyback reservoir shock and large water bottle.
