What happens when everybody' favorite bike is made a little slacker and a little longer? Hell, what if it's more progressive and coil compatible?
And that' exactly whathappenedto the Ripmo V2. Active ingredients include: 29" wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides.
"I road the RipMoseveral timeslast season.This bike is the KIng of the North Shore. I can't wait to try the improvements on the RipMo V2." -- Jon Bula - Owner
The Ripmo and RipmoAFshare the same steep,76-degree seat tube angle and arangy but not stratospheric reach, which places riders centrally over the pedals. It makes for an efficient position that can go the long haul. The slack64.9headtube angle and44mm reduced-off set fork doesn't wander while climbing, and doesn't hold you back descending. It works — all day up, all day down, all day in between.
Custom tuned front and rear suspension feature extra light high speed compression and rebound damping to deliver unparalleled traction. This allows the wheels to flutter through terrain like atrophy truck storming through aset of whoops.
The RipmoV2is compatible with both coil and air shocks due to amore progressive leverage rate. On the trail, it gives the suspension asupple feel through out the entirety of the stroke, enhancing traction no matter how deep youdig.
DROPPER POST CLEARANCE
Mo' dropper, mo' better. On small frames, you can run125 - 150mm, pending your preference and inseam length. On medium, large and extra large, a160mm — or, why not run a185mm? Their shorter seat-tube lengths and low standovers allow you to choose your size based on your reach preference.
You can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, know that you're not limited bywidth.
