Description

Ibis Ripmo Frame in EnduroCell (Black/Charcoal) and Bruce Banner (Green).

Like all Ibis bikes the colors look great here and EVEN BETTER in natural UV light…

What’s the S in Ripmo V2S?

Swingarm. Ibis’ new swingarm features some notable updates.

SRAM UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger: Consolidating SKUs means you can get a UDH when you need it at home or on a trip.

Changes that allow the revised 55mm chain line which utilizes a slightly wider rear end providing a stiffer chainstay for improved traction and tracking.

Ibis Top Tier Carbon & FOX Factory Suspension

Across the entire Ripmo V2S build lineup Ibis features their best carbon fiber and Factory suspension.

One of the things that sets Ibis apart from other brands is their singular use of a top tier carbon fiber across their entire carbon lineup. This carbon is vibrant and proven in the harshest riding conditions on the EWS circuit. Top tier carbon will retain a more vibrant feel longer into its service life.

The FOX Factory suspension is more than the slippery Kashima coat – Factory Suspension also features the top of the line dampers for the widest range of adjustment.

FOX Factory Float X2 Shock

FOX Factory Float X2 Air Can Controls

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.

FOX Factory Float X2 Rebound Controls

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.

FOX Factory Float X2 Compression Controls

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 V2S: Air vs. Coil

Debating air versus coil on your new Ibis Ripmo V2S?  Let’s look at the differences in the spring concepts.

Coil Ripmo

Generally coil shocks are sought after for being more plush on the initial stroke and more linear through the travel. “Linear” means less progressive, or less able to resist bottom out. Now, some of this can be tuned with compression settings on the damper, however, it will never have the same progressive feel as an air shock.

Getting the right coil for you usage is critical for the best performance. Typically riders will purchase two of the less expensive coil springs and decide if they prefer the softer spring with more preload spun into the spring or if the “heavier” spring with less preload is their preference. There is actual a difference in progressiveness with these two approaches while maintaining a cross over sag spring rate. In short, if you’re looking at coils and not 100% sure what you need chat with our team – and save on that titanium ultra light spring while you fine tune with the cheaper steel options!

Air Ripmo

Air shocks are mechanically more progressive in nature thanks to the properties of compressing air. Riders who want less ramp rate, or less progressive suspension can remove volume spacers thus increasing the air volume. Adding volume spacers diminishes the volume available to compress which leads to the PSI increasing at each mm of travel – increasing the ramp rate or progression of the suspension.

Shocks like the FOX X2 are typically very supple mimicking coil performance with a much wider range of adjustabilty to fine tune performance.

Most riders will gravitate to the air spring option for the range of adjustability. With the FOX Float X2 riders can reduce the compression settings to produce a more linear feel or run a more standard setup for a bit more “pop” and bottom out resistance.

Ibis Ripmo Fork Travel Options

160mm Ibis Ripmo V2S

The Ripmo is spec’d with a 160mm FOX 38. 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 V2S

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.

SRAM UDH

Here’s some great data from Ibis’ site about the SRAM UDH and 55mm chainline:

 

Bikes with a Sram UDH derailleur hanger require a crankset capable of achieving a 55mm chainline.

55mm chainline cranksets include:

Sram Dub Wide Cranksets.
Shimano 120 Series Cranksets.

A variety of other manufacturers offer 55mm chainline cranksets. Verify with your preferred crankset manufacturer before purchasing and installing.

Will a 52mm chainline crankset work on my new 55mm chainline bike?

While 52mm chainline cranksets with 28T-30T chainrings may clear the frame, it’s best to utilize a crankset capable of achieving the corresponding chainline to your frame. This will ensure the best shift quality and allow the use of larger chain rings. Always double check chainring clearance and fitment prior to riding.

Ripmo V2S: Comparative Bikes

What else is on your short list when shopping the Ripmo V2S?

Well, the Ripmo has cutting edge DW Suspension with 147mm of rear travel and can be setup with either a 160mm or a 170mm fork. It is a proven EWS level bike while being acknowledged as one of the most confident and comfortable enduro bikes for pleasure riding.

Currently the list of bikes that are directly comparable to the Ripmo V2S carbon would be the Yeti SB150 and Mondraker FOXY. Both available from BikeCo.com.

For riders looking at a more entry level price point Ibis’ aluminum Ripmo AF is a great option.

If you’re shopping a slightly smaller chassis the Ibis Ripley, Yeti SB130 and Mondraker Raze are worth review.
