Video: Exploring the High Desert Aboard the New Ibis Ripley

by Ibis Cycles  

The Ibis Ripley is a highly adaptable creature known to thrive in any location. We’ve traveled to the high desert plains of Utah to see the newest variant of this species. Here, a pack of Ripley's will travel for hours on end, often covering great distances in the search of beer and a burrito.

In the pre wagon wheel era, the Ripley was a pivotless aluminum soft tail but over two decades of human refinement is has evolved a 120mm travel carbon skeleton. To further its rise to the top of the evolutionary chain, the Ripley has adopted the slacker head angle, longer reach and steeper seat angles of its stable mates in the Ibis Genus.

To find out more about this remarkable apex predator, head to the Ibis Cycles website.

 Thought I was watching BBC's Earth. Nice narration, too bad they didn't put the voice over talent in the credits. He sounded just like Sir David Attenborough.

 So the nose heavy landing/nose riding thing is really hot now, but I could without all the skidding...

and really, since when was Klondike considered steep or difficult? There’s not a trail out there that I’d consider expert, everything is no dab climbable.

 I think Ibis knows exactly who their Ripley customers are and the types of trails they will be riding.

 Sounds like Ibis just had to trap these elusive creatures once they were found in their natural habitat. 3k for a carbon skeleton...hmm...gonna go hunt me some Ripleys out in the southwest!

That ridgeline trail is falling apart, but don't fix it or you'll ruin it.
