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 inĀ  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.

Ibis Ripmo Frame – MSRP $3,499

The rear shock is spec’d with the FOX Float Factory X2. For riders looking for a more linear feel the DVO Jade X Coil is also an option.

note: supply chain issues may result in frequent substitutions for similar parts at Ibis’ discretion.

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.


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.


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+ 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.
