Why We Like The Ibis Ripley GX Eagle Factory Mountain Bike
Light and nimble, and always down for a good time, Ibis' Ripley blurs the line between cross country rocketship and all-mountain fun machine. It hits a moderate landing place that's capable of quick-rolling power and nimble control in XC applications while offering unwavering support when we head into chunkier, steeper terrain. The key to the recipe is 120mm of ultra-efficient yet surprisingly plush DW-Link suspension, along with Ibis' dialed geometry that makes the bike intuitive and fun to ride.
This Ripley is built up with a trustworthy components group that puts money where it matters most without blowing up our budget. That means we get top-of-the-line FOX Factory suspension for the best possible handling and tunability on the trail, paired with a workhorse SRAM GX drivetrain that works as well as XO1 without the hefty price tag. The rest of Ibis's build kit shows they know what riders want, coming with powerful Shimano SLX brakes, durable Ibis wheels with a wide internal width to support modern tire widths, and a smooth and reliable Bike Yoke Revive dropper post with its unique air bleed function.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
