-The Ripley AF is our beloved, category-defying, short-travel, singletrack-scorching Ripley - rendered in aluminum, with more aggressive geometry. All the sizzle and pop of the carbon Ripley, now available as a complete bike at a wallet friendly price.
MODERN GEOMETRY, PRECISE HANDLING
-A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle and short (44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels makes for a super planted but still playful front end feel. A 76-degree seat tube angle puts your power directly to the pedals, while the short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics deliver that power without squandering a single watt.
UNIVERSAL DERAILLEUR HANGER
-The Ripley AF UDH features a UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger) for maximum drivetrain compatibility and moves to a 55mm chainline.
DW LINK SUSPENSION
-Our 15-year collaboration with Dave Weagle has yielded yet another bike with unparalleled climbing efficiency and control. Incredible snap and responsiveness are its trademarks, and a whole mess of plush, chunder-eating, downhill-crushing goodness gets thrown in for good measure. Wrap that together and you get the best suspension you’ll find anywhere. It’s that good.
LONG DROPPER POST
-The Ripley AF frame is designed with clearance for long droppers in mind. Check out the 'Dropper Insert' tab in the Specs & FAQs section below to find out which length of seatpost will fit your frame.
2.6” TIRE CLEARANCE
-We 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.
REMOVABLE ISCG-05 MOUNT.
-There if you want it, removable if you don’t.
-If it’s our fault, we’ll fix it. Simple as that.
The New Ibis Ripley AF ft Trials Champion Pat Smage
The Ripley AF is our beloved, category-defying, short-travel, singletrack-scorching Ripley—rendered in aluminum and with a touch more aggressive geometry. All the sizzle and pop of the carbon Ripley is now available as a complete bike at a wallet friendly, sub $3000. This bike is a multi-talented shapeshifter; a light, snappy, fast, fun, incredibly versatile bike that can get a whole heckuvalot more rad than its 120mm travel and gossamer weight implies. And making it out of aluminum only broadens the Ripley’s already broad appeal. It still rips like a Ripley. But it also costs a whole lot less than the carbon version, and is, well, more metal. 29” Wheels 130mm front travel 120mm dw-link rear travel 65.5 degree head tube angle 2.6” tire clearance Aluminum front and rear triangle Available in four sizes S-XL, fits riders between 5’ and 6’6 Frame weight of 7.45 w/ shock Pond Scum Green and Monolith Silver Complete builds starting at 30.5 lbs / 13.04 KG
