Leave it to the legendary minds at Ibis to create a trail-dominating, brilliantly efficient, 29-inch wheeled work of art. Ibis's Ripley 29 Special Blend 2X makes every trail more fun with a high-tech carbon 120mm-travel frame that includes all the goodies: dw-link suspension, super stiff eccentric links, Shimano 12mm thru-axle, rubber molded chainstay protection, and a beefy, threaded bottom bracket. What's it all mean? This rig climbs like a race whip, slays the corners and annihilates the downhills. The 11-speed Shimano Deore XT drivetrain delivers smooth, crisp shifts across all conditions, while letting you spin up that steep stuff. What about the drop back down? Don't worry, you'll have a rock-solid Shimano hydraulic disc brake set for speed modulation. When you consider its weight and travel, it's fully capable of hanging with the XC crowd on climbs and the enduro guys on the descents, and it even has two water bottle mounts.
