    What dreams are made of.

    If the Ripley LS is Ibis' response to the clamor for a longer, slacker, rowdier version of the original Ripley, then the 2017 Ripley LS Carbon X01 Eagle Werx Complete Mountain Bike represents the pinnacle of the line that Ibis claims takes the Ripley from "sporty" to "gnarly" to push the envelope further. Compared to the original, the LS earns its initials as both longer and slacker, which results in a bigger footprint that oozes confidence when the trail turns steep and chunky. The Werx build gets, well, the works, with SRAM's X01 Eagle one-by 12-speed drivetrain, and a Fox Transfer hydraulic dropper. Ibis' whip-fast 942 carbon hoops complete the dream build for a versatile, race-ready machine.

    Aside from the geometry changes, this is still the classic Ripley that we've been ripping in all manner of terrain. 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 LS utilizes 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 is bolstered by the inclusion of a boost rear axle. To this end, 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.

    • The big-hit Ripley gets a superlative build kit
    • Responsive DW-Link suspension with 4.7in of travel
    • Long, slack geometry handles steeper lines
    • Light and stiff carbon construction
    • Boost rear axle increases stiffness
    • SRAM's Eagle drivetrain drives precise shifts across 12 cogs
    • Carbon wheelset is lightweight and responsive
    • Item #IBS003L

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Ibis managed to engineer a true one bike quiver killer with both the Ripley and Ripley LS (longer, slacker). The optimized DW link suspension with eccentric pivoting cores provides a phenomenal pedaling platform that transfers the riders energy efficiently with very little pedal bob. When the trails point downhill, the 120mm of rear travel soaks up rough terrain as if it had more than the specs suggest.



    This bike is a blast to ride and own. If you have any question regarding the build or would like to pick my brain on this bike, feel free to call me directly or send me an email.
