The Ripley AF Story

Ripley AF is Ibis's 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 price.

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.

Already Metal

Ibis already played up the whole “metal” theme when they introduced the Ripmo AF last year. Since this is a lighter, nimbler bike than the burly Ripmo AF, it would be easy to call it “Metal Lite”. However, the Ripley AF is too awesome, and too versatile, to get pigeonholed like that. Choose your own adventure, the Ripley AF is ready to go.



Contemporary Geo, Telepathic Handling

A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle (that’s a degree slacker than the carbon version) and short (44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels makes for a super planted but still playful, precise but still nimble front end feel. Meanwhile, a 76-degree seat angle puts your power directly to the pedals, and the short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics deliver that power without squandering a single watt.


Ibis's 15 years of collaboration with Dave Weagle has yielded unparalleled climbing efficiency and tractability. Incredible snap and responsiveness. And a whole mess of plush, chunder-eating, downhill-crushing goodness. All wrapped up together in some of the best suspension you’ll find anywhere.
