Review: Banshee Titan - A Friendly Beast of a Bike
It's dope. I demoed an Occam, Ripmo, Ripmo AF, Stumpy (regular, not Evo). Went with the Prime V3 based on my experience with my Phantom V1. Each of those other bikes has its merits and beats the Prime in certain categories. Banshee is better than all of them as a complete package when you look at pedaling, cornering, descending, value, quality and customer service.

Review: Banshee Titan - A Friendly Beast of a Bike
I think the X2 is the culprit. My Firebird has high AS and a progressive LR, similar to the Titan. With the X2 being so sensitive and a high starting LR, it's gonna be easy to start it moving. When I tried a DPX2, it pedaled better. I think the smaller air chamber plus some extra base compression in the Dpx2 helps pedaling. X2 has so much more traction ...it's always a trade-off. Ive had a Prime V3 for two months now with similar curves and a DPX2. It pedals VERY well.

2019 Pinkbike Awards: Value Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
@MarcusBrody: only similarity is pedaling feel. Both have the DW/Ibis "hover" feel. Carbon is a trailbike that can't really take a coil. Alloy is a mini Enduro that can. Ibis is either using the AF as a loss leader to get people in shops or as a way to prototype new design ideas. Wouldn't be shocked to see a 165mm carbon ripmo. If they make a Ripley AF, they'll sell a ton. That's the bike most riders need.

2019 Pinkbike Awards: Value Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
@schlockinz: Demoed a SLX build. Ibis spent all their budget on suspension, tires, drivetrain and dropper. The trade-off is that the frame is heavy, the fabrication quality isn't refined and the paint sucked (both colors are ass + thin looking paint). Heavy/slow asseguys don't help. She wasn't a lively trail bike. More mini-enduro. It's impressive Ibis sells this in shops for $4k. They cut the "right" corners if that makes sense. Especially the NX build, I'm guessing Ibis is using it as a loss leader to get people in shops and on their bikes, hoping they buy a carbon one later. Orbea Occam is a more trail-ish bike. Comes in alloy and you can upgrade to Fox Factory and good wheels for around 4k.
