Details

The Ripley is our snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29" trail bike. Its combination of modern geometry, a stiff lightweight carbon chassis, and 120mm of ultra-efficient dw-link travel means it's equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all-day epics.

LONGER, SLACKER, STEEPER
With its well bal­anced mod­ern geom­e­try, the Rip­ley is ready for any adven­ture. The long front end, slack head angle, and short rear end gives you the con­fi­dence to try new lines, while the steep seat tube angle and short­er-off­set fork make it easy to maneu­ver tech­ni­cal climbs and flowy singletrack.

DW LINK
Since 2005, we've part­nered with sus­pen­sion guru, Dave Weagle, on the dw-link sus­pen­sion plat­form. It pro­vides an unpar­al­leled com­bi­na­tion of climb­ing effi­cien­cy and down­hill per­for­mance, that has been proven repeat­ed­ly at the high­est lev­els of racing.

LONG DROPPER POST
We use names like small, medi­um, and large to describe our siz­ing because it's easy to under­stand, but our ultra-low standovers and clear­ance for long drop­pers give you the abil­i­ty to size based on reach.

LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON, FOR EVERYONE
Whether you order an XTR or NX kit, you'll get the same pre­mi­um car­bon fiber frame. All our bikes are built from the high­est grade mate­ri­als and opti­mized for the best strength, weight, stiff­ness, and ride per­for­mance. The Rip­ley weighs 5 lbs with­out the shock.

FORK OFFSET
Some­times, short­er is bet­ter. Instead of the typ­i­cal 51mm off­set, the new Rip­ley uses a 44mm off­set. This gives you the sta­bil­i­ty of a slack­er head angle while retain­ing the BMX like feel of, well, a Ripley.

2.6" TIRE CLEARANCE
We pio­neered the wide rim rev­o­lu­tion a few years ago and inspired a new crop of wider 2.4" – 2.6" tires. When paired togeth­er, this com­bo can be run at ultra-low pres­sures that pro­duce elbow-drag­ging cor­ner­ing trac­tion with­out sac­ri­fic­ing speed.

REMOVABLE ISCG05 MOUNT
There if you want it, remov­able if you don't.

INTERNAL CABLE TUNNELS
Inter­nal cable rout­ing used to be a pain in the ass, but our inter­nal tubes make rout­ing easy. Just pop the hous­ing through and it comes out the oth­er end, no need for swear words or a pickset.

REPLACEABLE DOWNTUBE PROTECTOR
Our remov­able poly­car­bon­ate skid plate pro­tects your down­tube from sharp pointy things.
