The Ripley is one of our favorite, snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29" trail bikes.

Its combination of modern geometry, a stiff, lightweight carbon chassis, and 120mm of ultra-efficient dw-link travel means it's equally happy popping off bonus lines as it crushes all-day epics.


With its well bal­anced mod­ern geom­e­try, the Rip­ley is ready for any adven­ture. The long front end, slack head angle, and short rear end give you the con­fi­dence to try new lines, while the steep seat tube angle and short­er off­set fork make it easy to maneu­ver tech­ni­cal climbs and flowy singletrack.


Since 2005, Ibis has part­nered with sus­pen­sion guru Dave Wea­gle to bring you the dw-link sus­pen­sion plat­form. Pro­vides an unpar­al­leled com­bi­na­tion of climb­ing effi­cien­cy and down­hill per­for­mance, it's been proven repeat­ed­ly at the high­est lev­els of racing.


We use names like small, medi­um, and large to describe siz­ing because it's easy to under­stand, but with the ultra-low stan­dovers and clear­ance for long drop­pers, you'll have the abil­i­ty to size based on reach.


Whether you order an XTR or NX kit, you'll get the same pre­mi­um car­bon fiber frame. Ibis builds all of their bikes from the high­est grade mate­ri­als and opti­mize for the best strength, weight, stiff­ness, and ride per­for­mance. The Rip­ley weighs 5 lbs with­out shock.


Some­times, short­er is bet­ter. Instead of the typ­i­cal 51mm off­set, the new Rip­ley uses a 44mm off­set. With this, you'll get the sta­bil­i­ty of a slack­er head angle, while retain­ing the BMX like feel of, well, a Ripley.


The team at Ibis pio­neered the wide rim rev­o­lu­tion a few years ago and inspired a new crop of wider 2.4" — 2.6" tires. When paired togeth­er, this com­bo can be run at ultra-low pres­sures that pro­duce elbow-drag­ging cor­ner­ing trac­tion with­out sac­ri­fic­ing speed.


There if you want it, remov­able if you don't.


Inter­nal cable rout­ing used to be a pain in the ass but our inter­nal tubes make rout­ing easy. Just pop the hous­ing through and it comes out the oth­er end, no need for swear words or a  set.


Our remov­able poly­car­bon­ate skid plate pro­tects your down­tube from sharp pointy things.
