Ibis Ripley LS Boost X01

Ibis Ripley LS Boost X01

Ibis is known in the cycling industry for the expert craftsmanship and high-grade materials that go into the manufacturing of their bicycles. To understand how it all started, take a trip back in time to 1980. Ibis founder, Scot Nicol read an article about the new “Klunker Bike” movement in the Spring issue of CoEvolution Quarterly—a friendly hippy magazine. The seed was planted. In 1981, in a workshop in Mendocino, California, the first Ibis bicycle was made. Glassy eyed onlookers saw the bicycle and asked Scot if he could produce more. Fast forward 30 years to present-day Ibis: a renowned boutique bicycle manufacturer with humble beginnings that continues to raise the bar in the mountain bike world.

The Ibis Ripley 29 has been a long time coming. After about a half decade of R&D, Ibis has proudly released the Ripley 29er. Ibis’ goal was to create a nimble, responsive, and light 29er. Take note that these adjectives are not generally associated with 29er, thus the multiple years of R&D. The Ripley 29 is a true trail bike, one that allows you to throw on a helmet and explore the ends of the earth. Once you throw your leg over the Ibis Ripley 29, you’ll experience a new kind of cycling.

Carry on a conversation as you and your buddies climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ripley 29 climbs like a young mountain goat! You’ll surely crack a smile as the wind rustles through your helmet, while you enjoy the local singletrack trails. The 67.5 degree head angle allows you to securely point the bike back down the mountain, and put those on a 26” wheeled bike to shame. Ibis introduced a new version of the Ripley frame that features a longer and slacker geometry option. Ibis Cycles researched what people liked in a 29er geometry, and they found mountain bikers yearned for the steering of a 26” bike, but with the advantages of the bigger wheels. The 67.5 degree head angle (with a 130mm travel fork) provides downhill confidence, while the 51mm fork offset gives the responsiveness that riders love.

Constructed of high quality carbon fiber, the frame is incredibly lightweight. Not only is the carbon fiber frame lightweight, but it absorbs trail shock, as well. Not to mention, the lack of weld lines looks sleek. The heart of the Ibis Ripley 29 is the eccentric DW-Link Suspension. With 120mm of DW-Link travel gobbles up debris on the trail, while preserving the pedaling efficiency. DW- Link suspension features excellent small bump compliance, predictable travel through the range with no walling or harsh bottoming out. The Ripley LS Boost X01 build features a Fox Float DPS shock in the rear, and a Fox Float 34 130mm travel fork up front to handle bumps and sudden drops. To ensure superior maneuverability, the Ripley 29 has a tapered head tube. The Ripley adopts a new cable routing system that runs internally routed droppers, mechanical or hydraulic. The Ripley 29 is definitely a bike you’d take home to meet your mother.

The Ibis Ripley LS Boost X01 is all about simple efficiency. The rock solid SRAM X01 1x11 drivetrain saves weight and simplifies the drivetrain while maintaining a wide 30t x 10-42t mountain bike gearing range. X01 is technically a step down from SRAM's premier XX1 group, but features many of the same benefits with only a small weight penalty and a few cost-conscious material choices. A Race Face Turbine Cinch crank delivers plenty of pedaling power and Avid guide RSC hydraulic brakes give you all the braking power needed to stop on a dime or modulate technical sections of the trail. Easton ARC 30 wheels provide a solid and fast spinning wheel platform and Ibis tops off the Ibis Ripley LS Boost X01 build with a classy Ibis branded cockpit.

Bike and service made me a customer for life
The team at Jenson helped me out, set the sag, adjusted the fit, and set me up tubeless, and had the bike done a day early for me. Both Jensen and Ibis were awesome! I ordered the downtube protector from the Ibis site and they saw I had just bought a bike from Jenson and they shipped me one free of charge! I'm just blown away with how I have been taken care of by everyone on this. Thank you to all!
