The RIPLEY is available by SPECIAL ORDER ONLY. We are now accepting orders for February 2021 delivery. Please call the shop for details.
The Ripley is our snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29” trail bike.
Its combination of modern geometry, a stiff lightweight carbon chassis, and 120mm of ultra efficient dw-link travel, means it’s equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all day epics.
LONGER, SLACKER, STEEPER
With its well balanced modern geometry, the Ripley is ready for any adventure. The long front end, slack head angle, and short rear end gives you the confidence to try new lines, while the steep seat tube angle and shorter offset fork makes it easy to maneuver technical climbs and flowy singletrack.
Since 2005, we’ve partnered with suspension guru Dave Weagle on the dw-link suspension platform. It provides an unparalleled combination of climbing efficiency and downhill performance, that has been proven repeatedly at the highest levels of racing.
LONG DROPPER POST
We use names like small, medium, and large to describe our sizing because it’s easy to understand, but our ultra low standovers and clearance for long droppers give you the ability to size based on reach.
LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON, FOR EVERYONE
Whether you order an XTR or NX kit, you’ll get the same premium carbon fiber frame. All our bikes are built from the highest grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance. The Ripley weighs 5 lbs without shock.
Sometimes, shorter is better. Instead of the typical 51mm offset, the new Ripley uses a 44mm offset. This gives you the stability of a slacker head angle, while retaining the BMX like feel of, well, a Ripley.
2.6" TIRE CLEARANCE
We pioneered the wide rim revolution a few years ago and inspired a new crop of wider 2.4” — 2.6” tires. When paired together, this combo can be run at ultra low pressures that produce elbow-dragging cornering traction without sacrificing speed.
REMOVABLE ISCG05 MOUNT
There if you want it, removable if you don’t.
INTERNAL CABLE TUNNELS
Internal cable routing used to be a pain in the ass but our internal tubes make routing easy. Just pop the housing through and it comes out the other end, no need for swear words or a pickset.
REPLACEABLE DOWNTUBE PROTECTOR
Our removable polycarbonate skid plate protects your downtube from sharp pointy things.
