The Ripley AF is the alloy version of the carbon Ripley. A bike we’ve been waiting for for a while now. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley’s historical balance and speed, coupled with the Ripmos capabilities when things get hairy.
With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of efficient dw-link rear wheel travel (140mm front), this is the most versatile bike Ibis has ever built.
The Ripley also matches the dramatic shift in Ibis’ approach to geometry ushered in by the Ripmo. The reach is nearly an inch longer than the Ripley V3, 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 and stellar climbing. Set up with Shimano Deore 1x 12 shifting, Shimano brakes and Ibis wide Alumimum wheels.
