What if we took everybody’s favorite bike and made it a little slacker and little longer? Hell, what if we made it more progressive and coil compatible? And that’s exactly what we did for the Ripmo V2. Active ingredients include: 29” wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides.

GEOMETRY

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.

TRACTION TUNE

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. To learn more about our Trac­tion Tune phi­los­o­phy, click here.

COIL COMPATIBLE

The Rip­mo V2 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 through out the entire­ty of the stroke, enhanc­ing trac­tion no mat­ter how deep you dig.

DROPPER POST CLEARANCE

Mo’ drop­per, mo’ bet­ter. On small frames, you can run 125 – 150mm, pend­ing your pref­er­ence and inseam length. On medi­um, large and extra large, a 160mm — or, why not run a 185mm? Our short­er seat-tube lengths and low stan­dovers allow you to choose your size based on your reach preference.

TIRE CLEARANCE

You can run over­built, chunky tires; you can run light, big vol­ume fast tires, but what­ev­er you run, know that you’re not lim­it­ed by width.

BUSHINGS

Tired of hit­ting ‚Äčpur­chase” 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.

LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON FOR EVERYONE

All our bikes are built from the high­est grade mate­ri­als and opti­mized for the best strength, weight, stiff ness, 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.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Bikes that look pret­ty on the out­side, should look pret­ty on the inside. We use car­bon fiber tubes mold­ed with­in each frame. Push the cable in, watch it pop out, a beau­ti­ful moment indeed.

REMOVABLE ISCG MOUNT

So, you’re too fast for nar­row-wide chain reten­tion on its own? Chal­lenge accept­ed. Our remov­able ISCG tabs allow shred­ders to bolt on a chain guide, while the rest of us can shave grams.

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT

A poly­car­bon­ate down­tube pro­tec­tor deflects debris, while mold­ed rub­ber swing arm pro­tec­tors keep things qui­et and clean. And our sim­ple-yet-ele­gant link­age pro­tec­tors stop mud and rocks thrown by the tire, keep­ing your beau­ti­ful bike beautiful.
