Product Description

2018 Ibis Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 Mountain Bike Frame

 

Representing the third generation of the trail-slaying Ripley, the Ibis Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 Mountain Bike Frame is overhauled for 2018 to clear wide volume tires for unrelenting grip and smooth-riding characteristics across rough trails. It retains the nimble handling and high-speed stability that's made the previous Ripley LS an overwhelming favorite across a wide variety of trails, as well as the 120-millimeters of DW-Link travel for quick acceleration with very little in the way of energy-sapping pedal bob. Surprisingly, this limited rear travel feels much deeper than numbers suggest, meaning it can hang with longer-travel bikes on rowdy sections of trail littered with steep drops, square-edge hits, and rock gardens.

Delving into the Ripley LS 3.0's geometry, you'll find a moderately slack head tube angle of 67.5-degrees instilling confidence on the descent, with a low-slung 13-inch bottom bracket keeping you glued to the trail. Paired with the steam-rolling benefits of 29-inch wheels, it absolutely destroys descents and rugged stretches of trail with both composure and stability where other trail bikes would falter. This is especially surprising when you note its 120-millimeters of rear travel, which is rather small in today's world of long-travel enduro bruisers.

Accommodating the ever-evolving wheel and tire standards becoming ubiquitous on modern trail machines, the Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 accepts 2.6-inch tires with its reconfigured swing arm and clevis mount, which is moved backwards and down to clear wider tires. Ibis achieves a stiffer rear end with the reconfigured chassis of its dual-eccentric DW-Link suspension. The upper eccentric link is wider than before for increased stiffness when you're tracking across the rough stuff. Best of all, the reconfigured chassis doesn't affect the praised suspension kinematics of the previous Ripley LS.

We'd be amiss to forget the monocoque carbon lay-up of the Ripley LS frame, resulting in an astoundingly stiff, pleasingly light trail whip. For even greater wheel stiffness, the rear axle is upgraded to BOOST, which creates wider hub spacing for a stiffer bracing angle of the wheel spokes. Other cool tidbits to note, the front derailleur mount only works with Shimano side-swing and Di2 2x types and there's internal dropper cable routing for a cleaner overall aesthetic.
