Description

Push.

For years, we've been pushing the Ibis Ripley LS Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike's predecessors beyond the imagined limits of bikes with their geometries. With the LS updates, Ibis is only encouraging us to push further. The frame is both longer (L) and slacker (S) than those that came before, with the wheelbase, cockpit, and head angle all conspiring to outpace our all-mountain ambitions. Over the past several months, we've been riding the latest Ripley to see just how far that LS appellation can carry us, and the build kit we've outfitted this model with demonstrates that, on occasion, it's taken us right up to and over the ragged edge. The combination of SRAM's beat-'em-up GX Eagle, durable Aeffect hoops, a PRO dropper, and a 34 Float fork mean the bike drops in with the confidence of an expanded footprint and DW Link suspension but doesn't leave a rider mired in pedal-bob purgatory on the way up.

Other than the geometry changes, this is still the classic Ripley frame that we've been throwing around in all manner of terrain. The construction process remains the same, beginning with an internal bladder that's wrapped in a monocoque carbon layup that keeps the carbon fabric intact through joints. The precision of this method means that no additional molds or fillers are needed to keep the frame light and strong. The Ripley LS's swingarm and clevis are still filled with foam glass microsphere cores to ensure their structural integrity while keeping weight down, and it has the same expanded dropper capacity as the regular version.

The Ripley includes the latest Fox Factory shock, which is tuned for the DW-Link suspension's firm, consistent pedaling platform. It handles with nimble speed while accelerating out of turns and taking advantage of the suspension's strong anti-squat tendencies. The 120mm rear travel, combined with the Ripley LS's 67.5-degree head tube, makes for a surprisingly eager trail platform that combines the best qualities of XC and trail bikes.

Increasing rear stiffness was the key to this versatility. To this end, Ibis engineers added a Boost rear axle and revisited the internals of the dual eccentrics used in the DW-Link suspension, modifying the cores and adding extra carbon to the frame for more responsive power transfer. In addition to adding tire clearance, the redesigned right-side upright and inclusion of a swingarm-mount for the front derailleur contribute to an overall stiffer rear triangle. The chainstays also contribute to stiffness by remaining impressively stubby, and the CNC-machined threads of the 73mm bottom bracket grant peace of mind with less creaking than a PressFit model.

  • A slacker, longer take on Ibis' beloved Ripley platform
  • 4.7in of responsive DW-Link suspension
  • Tackle big lines with longer, slacker LS geometry
  • Light and stiff carbon construction
  • Threaded bottom bracket shell reduces creaking
  • Boost axles increase stiffness while climbing up or flowing down
  • Outfitted with a durable build for daily trail abuse
