The Ripmo and Ripmo AF share the same steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratospheric reach, which places riders centrally over the pedals. It makes for an efficient position that can go the long haul. The slack 64.9 headtube angle and 44mm reduced-off set fork doesn’t wander while climbing, and doesn’t hold you back descending. It works?—?all day up, all day down, all day in between.
The Ripmo V2S features a new UDH dérailleur for maximum future compatibility and moves to a 55mm chain line. The wider chain line allows for a stiffer chainstay.
Our custom tuned front and rear suspension feature extra light high speed compression and rebound damping to deliver unparalleled traction. This allows the wheels to flutter through terrain like a trophy truck storming through a set of whoops.
The Ripmo V2S is compatible with both coil and air shocks due to a more progressive leverage rate. On the trail, it gives the suspension a supple feel throughout the entirety of the stroke, enhancing traction no matter how deep you dig.
Mo’ dropper, mo’ better. On small frames, you can run 125?–?150mm, pending your preference and inseam length. Our shorter seat-tube lengths and low standovers allow you to choose your size based on your reach preference.
Tired of hitting ?“purchase” on another set of bearings each season? So were we. That’s why we use bushings where they make sense, and bearings where they don’t. The IGUS bushings in our lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance free. We believe so strongly in them, we back them with a free lifetime replacement.
All our bikes are built from the highest grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance?—?no matter how much you spend. The Ripmo weighs a svelte 6.25 lbs with a DPX2 shock and complete builds start at 28 lbs.
