Ibis Ripmo AF Now in Stock
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 $3,000.
From mountain biking’s awkward adolescence to its current anything-shreddy era, we’ve ridden steel, aluminum and titanium — remember the Bow-Ti, the first superbike? We remember the metal times too, and it feels good to see a premium ride experience for the broadening family of riders, courtesy of durable, affordable aluminum alloy.
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.
There are two frame colorways and three complete builds to choose from. Framsets are $1,799. The SRAM NX build is $2,999, the Shimano SLX build is $3,999, and the SRAM GX complete is $4,299.
