Ibis Ripmo V2 XT 2020 Review
The Ibis Ripmo was updated for 2020, and the V2 is indeed an improvement over the original. The primary changes, including a degree slacker head tube angle, a longer wheelbase, and a more progressive suspension curve may seem subtle, but the result is an even more well-rounded ride with enhanced composure on descents and improved stability at speed.
Bible Review: Ibis Ripmo GX
The first attribute testers noticed is the Ripmo’s lightning-quick acceleration. It tears off the line like a 100-meter-dash Olympian when the gun fires, and proceeds to move nothing like you’d expect from a long-travel 29er, proving that the category’s Cadillac days are over.
First Ride: The New Ibis Ripmo V2 is Carbon AF
The Ripmo V2 addresses the two main requests I had when I reviewed the original back in 2018. The slacker head angle and increased progression are exactly what I thought it needed to push it a little deeper into that all-mountain / enduro category.
