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 XTR 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, and a beefy, threaded bottom bracket. While the frame is a gem, the wonder of this build are the featherweight, Ibis full carbon rims, which will have you leaving your competition, mouth agape, struggling in your wake. What's it all mean? This rig climbs like a race whip, slays the corners, and annihilates the downhills. Shimano's 2 x 11-speed XTR is a marvel of modern design. The stunning aesthetics are complimented by an incredible functionality that lets you run through your cassette with the flick of a finger while spinning up rough, steep terrain. What about the drop back down? Don't worry, you'll have a rock-solid set of Shimano XTR hydraulic disc brakes for intuitive speed modulation. When you consider its weight and travel, the Ripley is 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.
