Ibis Ripmo V2S XT Kit Suspension Detail

XT Suspension Details

The Ibis Ripmo XT spec provides riders with the FOX Factory 160mm GRIP2 fork as well as a Factory Float X2 rear shock.

FOX Factory forks and shocks not only feature the premium Kashima Coat but more importantly they provide riders with the more sophisticated dampers.

The FOX 38 GRIP2 fork as well as the FOX Factory X2 have the ultimate available adjustments. Both fork and shock feature high and low speed compression as well as high and low speed rebound settings.

Ripmo Suspension Upgrade

Popular upgrade suspension upgrades to the Ibis Ripmo include BikeCo Pro Tune service (fork and shock available) as well as 170mm fork options.

Running a 170mm fork on the Ibis Ripmo produces a bike with a bit more capacity in big terrain. The additional travel increases the axle to crown which modifies the geo. Geo shifts include a slightly slacker headtube angle, increased trail measurement, and taller bottom bracket height.

Chat with our team about riding styles and terrain conditions that benefit the 170mm fork on an Ibis Ripmo!

XT Drivetrain Details

The XT spec is the most popular Ibis kit featuring Shimano components.

XT components are lighter than the SLX spec but robust enough to challenge enduro terrain on your Ripmo.

One outside the box upgrade to the XT kit is to upgrade the derailleur and shifter to the SRAM GX AXS option. This isn’t for everyone, but we have many clients who love adding wireless shifting to a Shimano drivetrain.

Wondering if its right for you? Chat with our team about the benefits and performance changes you might see mixing AXS onto a Shimano drivetrain.

XT Wheel and Tire Details

Ibis spec’s the Ripmo XT with their alloy Blackbird Send 35mm internal rim width wheels. These wheels feature Ibis logo hubs. It’s a great option for riders looking for high volume alloy wheels. A popular upgrade from the factory is the high volume Ibis Carbon Rim on Industry Nine Hydra rims.

If you’re shopping the Ibis Carbon Upgrade you should check out other options we have available.

Why not upgrade to the Ripmo XT with hubs from Chris King, Industry Nine or Onyx?

Will you’ll prefer aluminum rims like the WTB, RideFast or Factor or the improved power transfer and tracking of carbon like NOX or Ibis Carbon rims?

At BikeCo.com our expert wheel builders have you covered. Carbon or aluminum. Medium or high volume. We know what wheel will compliment your riding.

The Maxxis Assegai 2.5″ EXO Plus front and rear is a burly tire combo. The Ripmo is a bike at home in burly terrain so the tire spec make sense. However, some riders may prefer faster rolling option like the Minion DHF front or a DHR II or Aggressor rear. Depending on riding style and size we see everything from EXO, EXO Plus to Double Down tires spec’d on Ripmos.

Have a favorite tire combo? Let’s get you dialed in. Tires are a very personal feel and if you prefer an EXO Plus rear, or a Double Down front, or a DHF, Dissector, Aggressor, whatever – let’s get you setup right, right out of the box.

Looking for rim protection? We have you covered there too. Chat with our team to get CushCore Pro or XC rim protection installed before delivery.

XT Cockpit & Brakes Details

The Ripmo XT is spec’d with the popular Ibis HiFi carbon handlebar. It’s a great option – but we see a lot of updates here.

Do you have a preferred grip / bar / stem combo you like? Let’s dial you in.

Many riders will prefer upgrading the XT cockpit to 35mm options. We stock the best in 35mm diameter carbon handlebars. Options from OneUp, Tag, Renthal and RaceFace are popular.

All of these bars are available in a selection of rises to fine tune your fit.

Bars also have various levels of designed compliance. This is modified depending on final bar width as trimming bars reduces the leverage rate creating a stiffer bar. Spec’ing a bar right for your weight and riding style goes a long way to improving your trail experience. Chat with our team for details on handlebar setup differences for your MTB.

Speaking of trail experience: MTB Brakes are critical to your bikes performance. Getting the right brake for your riding style will improve your trail experience.

Popular Brake Swaps & Upgrades to the Ibis Ripmo XT

BikeCo provides the best brakes from Shimano, TRP, Hope and Magura.

Riders looking for great power with snappy performance gravitate to Shimano SLX, XT and XTR brakes.

TRP offers even a little more power with slightly improved modulation compared to Shimano.

With the Tech 4 Hope has increased their total power in-line with Shimano and Magura without compromising their amazing modulation.

Magura continues to be the most popular aftermarket brake, especially installed on new builds. We will credit you for any part swaps and with the variety of Magura price points most riders find the MT5 and MT7 brakes provide unbeatable value. Magura brakes offer great total power and top tier modulation without feeling soft. Magura offers a variety of brake levers to help riders fine tune their performance.

Available in Small, Medium, Large and X-Large the Ibis Ripmo has nearly every rider covered. The Ripmo Medium and Large frames have dimensions like the wheelbase, reach and standover closer than comparing the S to M or L to XL.

The stock 160mm fork produces a 64.9 degree headtube angle with a 341mm bottom bracket. Riders looking for a little more may gravitate to the 170mm fork option for a slightly slacker headtube and increased trail measurement.

The Ripmo fit is dependent on rider height as well as leg and arm length. Riders with notably longer or short legs may up or down size. If you find yourself between sizes chat with our team about fit details. We can help you define which size will give you a more confident fit and feel for your riding terrain and style.
