When the Ripmo was introduced as the love child of the Ripley and Mojo, it hit the sweet spot for many riders. Offering all-mountain capability that’s still light and efficient, the Ripmo was beloved by Ibis athletes, media and riders alike. Now, the Ripmo V2 gets a few more tweaks to make it even more capable.

The biggest change you’ll notice is the 1-degree slacker head tube. This makes it an even more capable descender, but the steep seat tube combined with DW-Link suspension makes for an efficient climber. Goldilocks would definitely find it “just right.”

Suspension kinematics were tweaked to accommodate coil shocks by adding more ramp-up to eliminate bottoming out. It also has a little more reach and maintains 29×2.6″ tire clearance.
