Ibis Ripmo AF Evo Custom Large

Ibis Ripmo AF Evo Custom Large

The Ripmo AF (Aluminum Frame) brings the award-winning performance of the carbon Ripmo to a wider, rowdier audience. It's everything we love from the carbon Ripmo, plus a few tweaks. Best of all, complete bikes start at only £3599

This model is one we have built using an Ibis Deore buildkit as a base but upgraded the brakes to Shimano's excellent 4-pot SLX 4 Pot brakes and fitted an aftermarket DVO Onyx SC fork in their awesome green to match the rear shock.

THE DETAIL

MOD­ERN GEOMETRY
With a steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratos­pher­ic reach, the Rip­mo AF places rid­ers cen­tral­ly and upright over the bot­tom brack­et. It makes for an effi­cient posi­tion that can go the long haul with­out plac­ing too much weight on its slack, 64.9-degree head­tube angle. A 44mm reduced-off­set fork is more sure­foot­ed on steep descents and stead­ies high speeds. Bet­ter up, bet­ter down.

DW LINK
Since 2005, we've part­nered with sus­pen­sion guru Dave Wea­gle on the dw-link sus­pen­sion plat­form. It pro­vides an unpar­al­leled com­bi­na­tion of climb­ing effi­cien­cy and down­hill per­for­mance, which has been proven repeat­ed­ly at the high­est lev­els of racing.

COIL COM­PAT­I­BLE
The Rip­mo AF is com­pat­i­ble with both coil and air shocks due to a more pro­gres­sive lever­age rate. It allows for coils lin­ear­i­ty to thrive and we spec air shocks with tunes that pro­vide pop with­out feel­ing too harsh. On the trail, it gives the sus­pen­sion a sup­ple feel through­out the entire­ty of the stroke, enhanc­ing trac­tion no mat­ter how deep you dig.

DVO
Now that we made the frames lever­age rate pro­gres­sive enough for a coil we had to find a coil shock that could han­dle the increased stress of being dri­ven off of a cle­vis. The DVO Jade-X is up to the chal­lenge so the Rip­mo AF comes with cus­tom tuned DVO suspension.

2.6 TIRE CLEARANCE
Ibis helped pio­neer the wide rim rev­o­lu­tion, which inspired the new crop of wider 2.4  2.6 tires. When paired togeth­er, this com­bo can be run at ultra-low pres­sures which results in elbow-drag­ging cor­ner­ing trac­tion with­out sac­ri­fic­ing straight-line speed.

PICK YOUR SIZE
We use words like small, medi­um, and large to describe our siz­ing because it's easy to under­stand, but our ultra-low stan­dovers give you the abil­i­ty to size your frame based on reach and preference.

LONG DROP­PER POST
What's bet­ter than a drop­per post? A longer one. Our frames are designed to accom­mo­date the longest drop­per posts pos­si­ble. Rid­ers over 58 (or 173cm) can eas­i­ly run a 185mm drop­per post, while folks between 5 and 58 (152cm  172cm) can use a post 125mm or longer depend­ing on inseam length.

REMOV­ABLE ISCG05 MOUNT
Our option­al ISCG 05 mount is there if you want it, remov­able if you don't.

SEV­EN YEAR WARRANTY
We stand behind our prod­ucts. If it's our fault, well fix it. Our alu­minum frames are backed by the same 7-year war­ran­ty and excel­lent cus­tomer as our car­bon products.

LOGO VS. I9
Our I9 wheels are built with Indus­try Nines Hydra Hubs. These Amer­i­can made hubs are a rid­er favourite due to their lightweight, dura­bil­i­ty, and instant response. We lace these hubs with blad­ed Sapim CX-Ray spokes, which are among the light­est and tough­est on the market.

Ibis Logo wheels. Ibis designed their hubs to be tough as hell and spec them with high qual­i­ty Enduro bear­ings. They're laced to Ibis toughened hybrid Carbon rims with Sapims strongest and light­est dou­ble-butted moun­tain bike spoke. The rims are covered by a 7-year warranty and generous crash replacement programme.
