Description

Comparing Ibis Ripmo Deore, NGX, SLX, XT, XO1 and XX1 AXS Build Kits

The carbon fiber Ibis Ripmo offers 29” riders a class leading DW suspension with Ibis’ legendary attention to detail. The Ripmo is ready to tackle the biggest terrain whether you’ve set your sights on enduro racing or park adventures. One of the most attractive features of the Ibis Ripmo is it’s heavy terrain performance doesn’t compromise it’s poppy, fast, quick feel on your flatter trail riding days. Ibis offers six kits the Ripmo Deore, NGX, SLX, XT, XO1 and XX1 AXS Build Kits.

What are the differences? Let’s look a bit deeper at Ibis factory builds.

Many components are shared across most or all of these builds so we’ll start there.

Suspension

FOX Factory Suspension is features front and rear on all of the Ripmo build kits.

The fork is the FOX Float 36 Factory GRIP2 at 160mm of travel or choose the more aggressive 170mm offering from BikeCo.com

This is the Kashima coated top dog in the FOX 36 lineup.

GRIP2 damper provides 8 clicks of High-Speed Compression, 16 clicks of Low-Speed Compression, 8 clicks of High Speed Rebound as well as 16 clicks of Low-Speed Rebound.
PSI and air volume spacing provide additional tuning parameters.

One of the highlights of the FOX 36 is the bleeders allowing riders to quickly equalize pressure in the fork lowers to improve small bump compliance as well as bottom out performance.

Rear suspension is handled by the FOX Float Factory X2. The X2 provides riders a 2 position Open / Firm lever, 8 clicks of High-Speed Compression, 16 clicks of Low-Speed Compression, 8 clicks of High-Speed Rebound, 16 clicks of Low-Speed Rebound, Air Pressure as well as Volume spacing tuning.

The DVO Jade X Coil is available for riders looking for a more linear feel – however with such a wide range of adjustability on the FOX X2 most riders gravitate to the air offering.

Intimidated by setup? No problem. Our team will help you with setup as well as fine tuning details.

In the interim, click through the tabs below to learn about how Air Spring Pressure, Volume Spacers, Compression and Rebound work together to help riders dial in performance.

Learn about suspension setup basics on the following tabs. Each tab has a video with the basics of Air Spring / PSI, Volume Spacers, Compression, Rebound (or watch it all in one place with the final tab).

Each tab has a text section with a bit more in-depth look at the typical MTB suspension settings and how they intertwine.

PSI / Spring Rate

MTB suspension must accommodate a wide range of rider weight. To achieve this nearly all forks and rear shocks use an adjustable air spring.

By varying air pressure riders set a desired sag, or percentage of travel that the bike “sits into” under neutral loading.

Modifying this sag percentage will change small bump compliance as well as bottom out characteristics.

Learning how to Pre-Charge your suspension pump will help you make finite adjustments to sag.

Typically 15% sag is for a firm setup and 20% sag is considered plush.

Air Spring Fine Tuning Control(s): Volume Spacers & Compression

Volume Spacers
Air springs ramp rate, sometimes called Spring Rate, is based on how air compresses in the containment cylinder. As the air is compressed the PSI increases according to the decreasing volume of the containment. This is done via non-compressible volume spacers in the air chamber.

Compression.
Hydraulic damping assists air spring providing support in mid-stroke and bottom out.

Opposing Control: Rebound.
Higher spring rate will drive the suspension back to neutral with more force than a lower spring rate. To keep the bike from skipping across trail rebound damping is utilized.

Volume Tuning

As suspension compresses (travel reduces) a piston moves closer to the end of a sealed container. By decreasing the volume of the container the PSI pushing back on the piston is increased.

By adding or removing non-compressible volume spacers riders modify the air spring’s ramp rate which directly changes the amount of support and bottom out feel of the fork or shock.

By removing volume spacers a rider increases the available volume in the suspension. The larger volume compresses less per mm of travel resulting in a lower PSI per mm of travel. This creates less support and is utilizes more travel.

Adding volume spacers decreases the available volume. With less air volume the PSI per mm of travel increases providing more support and greater resistance to bottom out.

Opposing Control: Rebound.
Rebound may need to be adjusted for volume tuning depending on how drastic of a PSI change is being tuned in or out of the suspension.

“Helping” Control: Compression.
Compression provides additional support and bottom out resistance.

Compression

Compression controls provide damping to slow suspension travel as a load is applied and the suspension is compressed. (easy one right?)

When riders have found sag and volume spacing preferences compression controls provide minute adjustments to dial in performance. Adding compression provides more support allowing the suspension to ride taller in its travel which is important when dialing in a bike’s personality in corners, etc.

With too little compression a bike will sit deep in the travel. This compromises cornering and braking force resistance. Headtube angle, bottom bracket height, front to rear weight bias, etc are modified as a bike goes through its travel. Maintaining control of the use of travel is paramount for good performance.

Since compression hydraulically slows the suspension’s use of travel it therefor lowers the air spring’s PSI. Properly setting compression controls will help ease the load on the rebound system by controlling the air spring’s push back onto the rebound circuit.

Too much compression will cause a bike to feel harsh and not use appropriate amounts of travel.

Generally, compression settings are fine tuned after sag and volume spacing have riders “in the ballpark.”

Low speed compression controls mid-stroke as well as support in cornering and against brake dive.

High speed compression helps with bottom out and high shaft speed inputs.

3 positions switches are a type of compression circuit with Open the most plush, Mid providing some additional support and Firm for climbing. If you climb in firm remember to put it back to plush for the downhill or you’re in for a potentially rough ride.

Rebound

Rebound damping controls a suspension’s shaft speed returning to a neutral position. Or, how fast the air spring pushes back as the load changes.

More rebound damping slows the suspension by decreasing the amount of fluid allowed to pass through the hydraulic design.

Less rebound damping allows the suspension to return faster with less hydraulic restriction on the damper.

Rebound setting is based on weight, ground speed, terrain and aggression. Setting the rebound properly means finding the right frequency or feel for your riding.

If your rebound is too fast, or doesn’t have enough clicks of rebound, the bike will tend to skip and suffer poor small bump compliance.

When the rebound is too slow, or you have too many clicks of rebound, the suspension may “pack up” creating a harsh ride as each bump uses progressively more travel forcing the suspension deeper into the travel, which will have higher spring rates.

Opposing: Air Spring PSI / Spring Rate.

“Helping” Control: Low & High Speed Rebound.

Some suspension is designed with 2 rebound circuits. The High Speed Rebound circuit is designed to provide additional control resisting increased PSI late in suspension travel.

Typically High Speed Rebound settings are used as the Low Speed Rebound controls edge towards closed. Example: you might not use any clicks of High Speed Rebound until you reach “X” clicks on the low speed.

FOX Float 36 Factory Series GRIP2

Ibis Ripmo Fork Travel Options

160mm Ibis Ripmo

The Ripmo is spec’d with a 160mm FOX 36. This provides the bike with it’s stock 64.9 degree headtube angle and 341mm bottom bracket height.

Riders looking for a little more aggressive setup may investigate the 170mm option.

170mm Ibis Ripmo

Perhaps more than the additional 6% of travel the 10mm adds are the geometry modifications. Raising the front of the Ripmo will slacken the headtube, increase the trail measurement and slightly lift the bottom bracket.

These are popular shifts for riders attacking the steepest, burliest terrain.

Wondering which is right for you? Chat with our team today and we’ll help you define which riders benefit from which travel setup.

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The FOX 38 provides riders a range of setup options using air spring as well as volume spacers.

Suggested sag is 15% for a firm feel and 20% for a plush fork. On the stock 160mm setup 15% equals 24mm or about 1 inch of sag. 20% will use 32mm or about 1.3″ of sag.

Riders who choose the 170mm option will find the sag settings quite close to the 160. 15% is 26mm while 20% is 34mm. (as mentioned in the previous tab the additional travel is more about the geometry change than “more” travel).

Volume Spacers

The 160mm FOX 38 is factory spec’d with 3 volume spacers (bike manufacturers may or may not change this). The 160mm fork can carry a maximum of 6 volume spacers.

At 170mm the factory spec is 2 volume spacers with a maximum of 5.

Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

GRIP2 High and Low Speed Rebound Control

FOX 38 GRIP2 Rebound Controls

The GRIP2 damper provides both Low (LSR) and High (HSR) rebound controls.

The addition of the High Speed or HSR control provides increased rebound control to account for the higher PSI produced by aggressive or heavier riders.

Typically riders will adjust LSR, Low Speed Rebound, to suit riding style and taste and refer to FOX’s guide for the appropriate HSR, High Speed Rebound, pairing.

FOX GRIP2 High and Low Speed Compression Controls

FOX GRIP2 Compression Controls

The FOX GRIP2 damper provides Low and High speed compression controls to fine tune support.

Compression circuits hydraulically damp (or slow) the fork’s input assisting the air spring in providing appropriate mid-stroke and bottom out feel.

Low Speed Compression helps provide mid-stroke support. This allows a bike to ride taller in the travel in cornering while resisting brake dive, rider weight shift and other slow shaft speed inputs.

High Speed Compression works to fine tune bottom out feel as well as other high shaft speed inputs also known as square edge bumps. Example: if you sprint straight into a curb you’re likely to engage the High Speed Compression even if you’re not using full travel. This is due to the speed of the shaft moving oil to compensate for the hit.

FOX Float Factory X2

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The Ibis Ripmo uses a 210 x 55mm shock.

The spec’d Fox Float Factory X2 is the most popular based on its wide variety of setup options.

SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically Enduro riding styles gravitate to 25-30% sag. This would measure about 17mm for a plush setup.

Volume Spacers

Volume spacing provides fine tuning options to support the air spring.

By adding volume spacers, thus reducing the volume, you increase the air spring’s ramp rate for improved bottom out support and pop.

Conversely removing volume spacers produces a more linear feel as the air has more volume during shock compression per mm of travel.

Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

Low and High Speed Rebound Positions on FOX Float X2

FOX FLOAT X2 Rebound Controls

The X2 rear shock provides both Low (LSR) and High (HSR) rebound controls.

The addition of the High Speed or HSR control provides increased rebound control to account for the higher PSI produced by aggressive or heavier riders.

Typically riders will adjust LSR, Low Speed Rebound, to suit riding style and taste and refer to FOX’s guide for the appropriate HSR, High Speed Rebound, pairing.

Low Speed Rebound is located near the Compression Controls and 2 position switch. High Speed Rebound adjustments are made on the opposite end of the shock near the eyelet.

High and Low Speed Compression Controls on FOX X2

FOX X2 Compression Controls

The FOX X2 provides Low and High speed compression controls to fine tune support as well as a 2 position OPEN or FIRM switch..

Compression circuits hydraulically damp (or slow) the fork’s input assisting the air spring in providing appropriate mid-stroke and bottom out feel.

Low Speed Compression helps provide mid-stroke support. This allows a bike to ride taller in the travel in cornering while resisting brake dive, rider weight shift and other slow shaft speed inputs.

High Speed Compression works to fine tune bottom out feel as well as other high shaft speed inputs also known as square edge bumps. Example: if you sprint straight into a curb you’re likely to engage the High Speed Compression even if you’re not using full travel. This is due to the speed of the shaft moving oil to compensate for the hit.

The FOX X2 provides 16 clicks of Low Speed Compression adjustment as well as 8 clicks of High Speed Compression controls.

Other Parts Shared by Builds

Ripmo Deore, NGX, SLX, XT, XO1 and XX1 AXS builds spec Cane Creek 40 headsets, Lizard Skins Charger grips, Silverado saddles and Maxxis Assegai EXO+ tires.

Chris King headsets are a popular upgrade to the Cane Creek 40. King headsets are available in a range of colors to highlight your build.

Tires are another area riders frequently modify. The Assegai EXO+ are tires ready to tackle the most aggressive terrain out there. Looking for a faster rolling rear tire? Many riders switch to the Maxxis DHR II which has a slightly shorter lug and more tightly spaced tread pattern for less rolling resistance.

Leaning to a bit faster setup? Check out the DHF front and DHR II or DHF rear. When the grip is great and speed is everything a DHF front and Aggressor rear is a popular setup.
All of the kits use a 203mm front and 180mm rear rotor (models vary). Riders really pushing the Ripmo are apt to update to a 203mm rear rotor for improved heat capacity and power.

Cockpit

There are some differences in the Ripmo build kits cockpit spec.

On the Deore, NGX and SLX kit Ibis spec’s their 780mm Alloy bar. The XT and XO1 builds feature the Ibis 800mm Hi Fi Carbon bar while the XX1 AXS uses the ENVE M6 780mm carbon bar.

All of the Ibis kits provide 31.8mm handlebars and stems. The Deore, NGX and SLX use Ibis’ 31.8mm stem while the XT and X01 use the Industry Nine A318. XX1 AXS features an ENVE stem.

Many riders swap or upgrade cockpits to 35mm offerings from Renthal, Tag Metals, OneUp Components or RaceFace. Chat with us about how bar width, rise and stiffness modify your bike’s setup and personality.

Adjustable seatposts vary across the kits. The KS Rage-i is featured on the Deore and NGX builds. Bike Yoke Revive is outfit on the SLX, XT and XO1 completes. The XX1 AXS build stays wireless with the RockShox Reverb AXS seatpost.

Updating seatposts for maximum travel is common as well as different remotes to improve feel, provide a splash of highlight color, etc. We work with PNW, OneUp, RaceFace, FOX, Wolf Tooth and more.

What’s Different on the Ripmo Kits

Brakes. Drivetrain. Hub Drivers.

Hub drivers? Yes. The Shimano 12sp requires a MicroSpline hub driver while the NGX, XO1 and XX1 AXS kit all use the SRAM XD driver.

The Microspline hub driver allows riders to use any of the Shimano 12sp cassettes during service. Similarly the XD driver allows riders to use any of the GX, XO1 or XX1 cassettes at time of service.

Drivetrain can be split into a couple areas. Feel and weight.

Shimano drivetrains feel very crisp at the shifter but tend to require a bit more tuning on cable tension to keep the shifting in tip top shape.

SRAM shifting has a bit more of a “thump” to it so to speak but the Eagle systems need less attention to cable tension.

Both offer great performance when kept cleaned and lubed. Drivetrain ratios are extremely close with the Shimano 51t and SRAM Eagle 52t cassette.

The upper end drivetrains will have lighter components with more exotic materials used here and there compared to the kits below. As mentioned before at time of service you can move up or down in either the Shimano or SRAM families.

New cranks are a popular “down the line” update to the more entry level kits. Deore or NX cranks can be upgraded later to lighter options in the SRAM or Shimano family or RaceFace cranks in aluminum or carbon or go-to models too.

The most common swap or upgrade across all of the kits is brakes.

The three most popular brands of brakes are Magura, Shimano and Hope.

Shimano brakes are features on the Deore, SLX, XT and XX1 AXS builds in varying models. Shimano brakes are known for their power and performance.

Magura and Hope both offer more modulation than the Shimano offerings – meaning as you pull the lever the percentage of bite is more balanced with the percentage of lever pull.

Magura is comparable to Shimano in total power available as well.

The XX1 AXS Build features a handful of exceptions to the notes above.

Notably the XX1 AXS Build features the Industry Nine hubs with Ibis S35 Carbon Rims, an ENVE cockpit as well as a Rockshox Reverb AXS seatpost.

Popular Upgrades to the Ibis Ripmo Complete

There are a variety of popular upgrades or part swaps on the Ibis complete bikes. Flip through the tabs below to explore some of the most popular including Brakes, Tires, Chain Guides and Frame Protection.

Magura MT5 with HC Lever Upgrade

Brake Upgrades

Along with tires the most common upgrade or swap to a stock Ibis build is brakes.

Brakes are extremely important to your bike’s personality as well as your confidence on trail.

Finding brakes with the right modulation and power for your riding style allows you to further fine tune performance with rotor size.

Modulation:

Brake modulation is how the lever position relates to the amount of power at the caliper.

Brands like Magura and Hope offer great modulation. A slight pull on the lever will produce less pressure at the caliper and increases as lever throw continues. Magura riders can fine tune this even further with a variety of short or long brake levers to further modify the leverage ratio. In fact, Magura offers brake levers with adjustable modulation!

Shimano brakes have less modulation and the power tends to “come on” quicker. This isn’t necessarily good or bad – it’s just a personality.

Power:

Magura and Shimano offer similar levels of total power differing in personality more on modulation than max power or feel.

Hope brakes have a little less “bite” at full power but most riders are able to fine tune this by running a slightly larger rotor to increase both leverage and heat capacity.

Pricing / Value

Interested in updating the brakes but on a tight budget? Check out the Magura MT5. In many cases it’s available as a No-Cost upgrade. Cost conscious yes, light on performance or service life? Not a chance. The MT5 brake is the most popular offering here at BikeCo.com

Ripmo Tire Upgrades / Swaps

The Ibis Ripmo kits are spec’d with Maxxis AssegaiEXO+ 29×2.5″ tires. These are on the aggressive end of the spectrum for tread pattern and about middle of the road for sidewall support and protection on current Enduro tire options.

Since tires play such a big role in a bike’s personality it’s very common for clients to swap to other tread patterns, sidewalls or sizes.

Some of the most popular changes are listed below.

Enduro Front Tire Comparison

Front Tire: Spec’d Maxxis Assegai

The Assegai is a very popular front tire for aggressive trail and enduro riding. Designed with tall lugs the Assegai provides excellent grip in a variety of conditions keeping you confidently attacking the terrain.

Riders looking for a bit faster rolling front tire typically review the Maxxis DHR II and DHF.

While the DHR II is branded as a rear tire it is popular as a front tire in some conditions. This is due to the slightly larger spacing and braking sipes in the tires center section.

The Maxxis DHF is probably the most popular front tire across MTB. Designed with tall cornering knobs and moderate center section the DHF is designed to roll fast and corner hard.

Enduro Rear Tire Comparisons

Rear Tire: Spec’d Maxxis Assegai

Ibis spec’s the Assegai rear tire giving the Ripmo plenty of grip for the gnarliest terrain. The Assegai features tall lugs with moderate spacing to chew into terrain.

Riders looking for faster rolling rear tire options tend to shop the Maxxis DHR II, then the DHF (slightly tighter packed and faster than the DHR II), followed by the Aggressor.

Looking to go even faster on the rear tire? Chat with us about the new Rekon tire’s with aggressive sidewall technologies for support.

Double Down EXO+ and EXO Sidewall Comparison

The Assegai EXO+ stock tire is a popular option balancing sidewall support capable of attacking burly terrain without adding too much rolling weight.

EXO+

EXO+ construction combines two puncture protection materials: SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%; and resistance to pinch flats by 28%.

Riders looking for additional sidewall support and resistance to damage will shop the Double Down or DD options

Double Down

DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.

The “light” tire option for most enduro riders would be the EXO sidewall.

EXO Sidewall

An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.

Popular Enduro Chain Guides

One of the most common upgrades to the Ibis Ripmo is adding a chain guide.

A variety of options are available depending on your riding needs.

The Wolf Tooth Gnarwolf is a great upper guide as is the OneUp option.

OneUp goes a step further with the Guide + Bash or, for riders who don’t need or want the upper guide, simply a lower bash to protect the chain ring and bottom bracket area.

The lower bash only is a popular option with oval chain ring setups that can be complex to pair with upper guides.

RideWrap Frame Protection Installation

RideWrap Frame Protection

A popular upgrade for any mountain bike, we offer two options of RideWrap Frame protection.

The RideWrap Tailored Kit covers the majority of your frame based on individual model size and shape. This is a $95.00 addition. We will install the Tailored kit for an additional $250.00 labor at time of initial build.

RideWrap’s Covered Kit protects the high wear areas such as downtube, top tube, etc. Custom trimming of the stock Covered Kit helps with fitment depending on model and size. The Covered Kit is $65.00 and installation is $150.00 at time of build.

Installing RideWrap isn’t particularly hard – but it is time consuming. Thinking about doing the labor yourself? Awesome! Check out a quick video on the installation process below.
