2017 Ibis Ripley LS Carbon X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike

 

The Ripley LS is Ibis’ answer to the call for a longer, slacker version of its well-loved Ripley. The effects of these changes are felt throughout the frame in the form of a longer wheelbase and lowered head tube angle. This bigger footprint gives the Ripley LS extra confidence on steep, gnarly descents and meets the needs of riders who’ve been using the original Ripley as something of a baby enduro rig. As Ibis puts it, these geometry tweaks bring the Ripley from “sporty” to “gnarly” to fuel even bigger runs and envelope-pushing rides. The 2017 Ripley LS Carbon X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike pairs that revised geometry with SRAM’s revolutionary X01 Eagle drivetrain, a Fox Float 34 fork, a dropper seatpost, and Ibis’ own 938 wheels for a race-ready ride.

Other than those geometry changes, this is still the classic Ripley that we’ve been throwing around in all manner of terrain for years. 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 Float DPS shock, which is tuned for the DW-Link suspension’s firm, consistent pedaling platform. Expect it to handle 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, and the inclusion of a boost rear axle is the first obvious step in that direction. Ibis engineers also 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.
