|Much waited for after the success of the Ripmo, comes the new Ripley with a platform and geometry based on the Ripmo.
The Ripley is a 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.
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 makes it easy to manoeuvre technical climbs and flowy singletrack.
The stock builds comes with a 130mm fork but you can pair it with a 120mm stepcast fork to create a BC Bike Race weapon. Or, throw on a 140mm fork and burly tires to build a lightweight enduro bike.
The Ripley V4S features a new UDH derailleur for maximum future compatibility and moves to a 55mm chain line. The wider chain line allows for a stiffer chainstay.
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.
