Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 X01 Eagle Complete Bike

Mountain biking roots may have been in non-conformity, but over the years, despite our greatest attempts, we've fallen guilty of setting, and following trends. While some of those trends have come and gone — we're looking at you, three-by drivetrains, rim brakes, and 26-inch wheels, others have pushed mountain bikes further, harder, and into more capable geometries than we've ever ridden before. We're talking ever prevalent, long-low-slack kick that's taking over every bike we cross paths with on the trail. And the engineers at Ibis are no slouches when it come to keeping up to speed with the competition, which is where we land with the Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 X01 Eagle Complete Bike. As the name designates, the Ripley LS moves to a longer and slacker profile than the previous, already-capable Ripley, allowing you to push the limits of what's possible on the trail, buzzing the back wheel of the big enduro bikes on descents, and soaring past them with lively DW-link suspension on the climb back up.

Despite the new stretched out geometry, this third-gen version of the Ripley retains the nimble handling that leaves you with an ear-to-ear grin on the trail but with a stiffer rear end that may leave a frown on your buddies' faces while you power away on climbs. The stiffer rear end and increased tire clearance are owed to a reconfiguration of the chassis and its dual-eccentric DW-Link suspension.

The upper eccentric link is wider than before for increased stiffness when you're tracking across the rough stuff. There's a new swingarm and clevis mount as well, which is moved backwards and down to clear the 2.6-inch tires. Despite those changes, we're happy to report that the reconfigured chassis and swingarm don't affect the praised suspension kinematics of the previous Ripley LS. This means you won't notice a difference in the pedaling efficiency or square-edge compliance from the DW-Link suspension.

Other than its notable upgrades in rear-end stiffness and increased tire clearance, the Ripley LS retains the praised geometry of the last version, namely its moderately slack 67.5-degree head tube angle paired with a low-slung 13-inch bottom bracket for impressive stability at speed. Although it's not quite as slack as much of the competition, the third-gen Ripley LS never feels outgunned on the trail, even when the going gets steep and rocky. We'd credit this to a slightly longer 130mm 34 Float fork keeping things confident and composed out front, paired with 29in wheels rolling on the mid-sized rubber mentioned above for steamrolling roots and rocks.

We'd be remiss to omit the monocoque carbon lay-up of the Ripley LS frame, resulting in an astoundingly stiff, pleasingly light trail whip. For even greater wheel stiffness, the hubs are upgraded to Boost, which creates wider hub spacing for a stiffer bracing angle of the wheel spokes. We should also note that the front derailleur mount only works with Shimano side-swing and Di2 types, should you desire to run a front derailleur in the future. But, frankly, we're not so sure that's necessary with SRAM's cherry-picked X01 Eagle drivetrain, offering you more gears than you know what to do with, and a whopping 50-tooth bailout cog to get you up the most quad-torching steeps.

  • Challenge your limits on the trail with Ibis' all-mountain 29er
  • 5in of DW-Link's wagon wheel travel eager for questionable lines
  • The Longer Slacker geometry makes that travel feel even deeper
  • Redesigned swingarm ups tire clearance to 2.6in
  • Lightweight carbon construction gets after it on climbs
  • Mid-sized tires boost cushion and traction across rooty climbs
  • Fear no climb with SRAM's X01 Eagle drivetrain and its lofty 12 gears
