Ibis Ripmo NX
- Bike Services
Is there any phrase in mountain biking that’s more overused than “longer and slacker?” Every manufacturer (Ibis included) is guilty of it. It makes bikes descend better but the question is, how far can it be pushed? We felt we were at the limits of that trend until we began experimenting with seat tube angles and fork offset.
By making the seat tube angle a steep 76°, we’ve put more weight over the front tire. This keeps the front end from wandering or washing out. Moving the seat tube forward also required pushing the front end forward to keep the top tube numbers static, resulting in the longer reach.
In addition to the steep seat tube, the Ripmo also uses a fork offset that is shorter than traditionally used. That makes a 65.9° head angle feel like 64.5° without increasing the wheelbase. You get the stability of a slack head angle without giving up your ability to go around tighter corners.
