Ibis released the Ripmo as its new enduro-bred 29er. The Ripmo sports 145mm of rear travel with a 160mm fork on 29-inch wheels. While this combination sounds like it leans towards enduro riding and racing, the bike proved to be a very efficient climber as well as a capable descender. The progressive geometry and shorter fork offset helped bring together a well-built package. www.ibiscycles.com
