The Ibis Ripmo is the perfect mountain bike.

26208

The Ibis Rip­mo refus­es to be cat­e­gorised, blur­ring the bound­aries between trail and enduro bikes: it’ll make an excur­sion to the bike park just as hap­pi­ly as it’ll ride a marathon in the Alps. Besides the increased trac­tion of the 29″ wheels and the potent sus­pen­sion, we were par­tic­u­lar­ly con­vinced of the excel­lent­ly bal­anced geom­e­try. The flow­ing lines of the car­bon frame and the impec­ca­ble qual­i­ty of the work­man­ship tes­ti­fy to the per­fec­tion­ism of this US brand. With com­po­nents such as the long-trav­el drop­per seat­post, the build spec is excel­lent, but you can also cus­tomise it to suit your indi­vid­ual require­ments using the con­fig­u­ra­tor. Our con­clu­sion? The Ibis Rip­mo is the per­fect moun­tain bike, able to mas­ter the bal­anc­ing act between the poten­cy of an enduro bike and the agili­ty as well as the direct han­dling of a trail bike.”
