New Ibis Ripmo v2 Carbon

Next deliveries to Sweden expected Late-April 

 Has Ibis done it again???
Not resting on their laurels,  they just announced an updated version of their Ripmo C.
Other than the colour scheme (Bug Zapper Blue and Star Destroyer Grey), the main difference from the award-winning for the trail bike of the year 2018 to 2020 from Enduro Magazine

For those unfamiliar with the Ibis Ripmo, the bike basic facts of the bikes are:
  • 29” Wheels • 160mm front travel
  • 147mm DW-link rear travel • 2.6” tire clearance
  • Carbon front and rear triangle
  • Available in four sizes S to XL fits riders between 1m52 and 2m01
  • Frame weight of 2.86 kg w/ DPX2, / 3.09 kg w/ X2
  • Complete builds starting at 12,8kg 

And the key differences other than the 2 new colour schemes (Bug Zapper Blue and Star Destroyer Grey):

  • One degree slacker 64.9 head angle
  • More progressive suspension leverage ratio
  • Compatible with select coil shocks(delivered with Traction Tuned air shock)

And it keeps everything Ripmo owners love about the original:

  • 44mm fork offset
  • Steep 76-degree seat tube angle
  • Threaded BB (73mm BSA)
  • SCG 05 compatible with removable adapter
  • In-frame moulded cable tunnels
  • 26oz bottles fit inside the front triangle, size M-XL (Arundel side loader cage recommended) 
  • Size M-XL compatible with 170mm+ droppers, 125-150mm for smalls
  • Polycarbonate downtube protector and moulded rubber swingarm protectors
  • IGUS bushings in the lower link, bearings in the upper link
  • Metric 210x55 shock
  • 203mm max rotor size
  • 1x specific design • Boost spacing
  • Tapered headtube and steerer: ZS44 upper, ZS56 lowe 


Now, this is all well and good, but what does it really mean in terms of riding?
Unfortunately, other than Robin Walner, not many Swedes have got a chance to try it yet but here is what the man himself had to say about it:
"insert Robin quote here"

Those who purchased one of the 127 Ripmos sold over Easter weekend 2018 by Cykelkraft will remember that it took almost a year for Ibis to deliver them all as no one, not even Ibis Cycles, ever expected the bike to be so successful but all test reports agreed. They managed to put some really powerful Dark Mojo Jambo into that bike and it rides like the devil on cocaine...  And everyone wanted one!

And there is not much that makes me think that this updated version will not be as successful if not more with the rise of coil shocks on Enduro bikes.
So be prepared for so delays in deliveries and if you want one for 2020 biking season, the time to order it is about NOW!
