The love child of a Ripley and the Mojo HD4, the all-new Ripmo is a big wheeled slasher that’s always down for another lap, whether that means a big climb or a tailgate pad. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley's balance and speed, coupled with the Mojo HD4's capabilities when things get hairy.

With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of effi­cient dw-link rear wheel trav­el (160mm front), this is the most ver­sa­tile bike we’ve ever built.

It also marks a dra­mat­ic shift in our approach to geom­e­try. The reach is near­ly an inch longer than the EWS Team win­ning HD4, 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.

Tick­ing off the box­es, oth­er fea­tures include 2.6” tire clear­ance, short chain­stays, a thread­ed BB, trick inter­nal cable rout­ing and the abil­i­ty to run both a pig­gy­back reser­voir shock and large water bottle.

Is there any phrase in moun­tain bik­ing that’s more overused than ?“longer and slack­er?” Every man­u­fac­tur­er (Ibis includ­ed) is guilty of it. It makes bikes descend bet­ter but the ques­tion is, how far can it be pushed? We felt we were at the lim­its of that trend until we began exper­i­ment­ing with seat tube angles and fork offset.

By mak­ing the seat tube angle a steep 76°, we’ve put more weight over the front tire. This keeps the front end from wan­der­ing or wash­ing out. Mov­ing the seat tube for­ward also required push­ing the front end for­ward to keep the top tube num­bers sta­t­ic, result­ing in the longer reach.

In addi­tion to the steep seat tube, the Rip­mo also uses a fork off­set that is short­er than tra­di­tion­al­ly used. That makes a 65.9° head angle feel like 64.5° with­out increas­ing the wheel­base. You get the sta­bil­i­ty of a slack head angle with­out giv­ing up your abil­i­ty to go around tighter corners.

The Rip­mo geom­e­try enables a new lev­el of con­fi­dence and speed, bring­ing the sta­bil­i­ty of the EWS Team Cham­pi­onship win­ning HD4 to 29” wheels.
