The Ripley AF is Ibis's 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.
MODERN GEOMETRY, PRECISE HANDLING
A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle and short (44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels makes for a super planted but still playful front end feel. A 76-degree seat angle puts your power directly to the pedals, while the short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics deliver that power without squandering a single watt.
DW LINK SUSPENSION
Our 15-year collaboration with Dave Weagle has yielded yet another bike with unparalleled climbing efficiency and tractability. Incredible snap and responsiveness are its trademarks, and a whole mess of plush, chunder-eating, downhill-crushing goodness gets thrown in for good measure. Wrap that together and you get the best suspension you’ll find anywhere. It’s that good.
LONG DROPPER POST
The Ripley AF frame is designed with clearance for long droppers in mind.
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 ISCG-05 MOUNT.
