Early this winter, the Ibis Cycles Enduro Team descended on Santa Cruz, California to visit Ibis HQ, meet new teammates, and begin testing a new long travel 29er codenamed the Ripmo.

Within a few days of testing, the team came to a unanimous decision. They wanted to race the new bike at the EWS and the results speak for themselves. At the season opener, Robin Wallner and Bex Baraona had their best performances to date.

Robin landed his first EWS podium in Chile and carried that momentum into Columbia. The Speedy Swede is currently sitting in second overall and the Team is in first place.

Seriously, why do all of the pros ride without eye protection? Do they NOT get bugs, dirt, branches in the eyes like me? I'm asian, and my eyes still get all of the above, even though they're smaller targets!

 Man, building during the winter in the rain and cold going solo, then one day randomly you see your features being ridden, video'd and posted on PB is honestly a gratifying feeling. Just had to voice that cuz I'm stoked right now Wink
