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.

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 makes it easy to maneu­ver tech­ni­cal climbs and flowy singletrack.

The Rip­ley V4S fea­tures a new UDH dérailleur for max­i­mum future com­pat­i­bil­i­ty and moves to a 55mm chain line. The wider chain line allows for a stiffer chainstay.

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.

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.

Whether you order an XX1 or SLX 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 shock.

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.

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.

There if you want it, remov­able if you don't.

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.

A thick rub­ber down­tube pro­tec­tor deflects debris, while our chain­stay pro­tec­tor fea­tures thick raised sec­tions to help damp­en chain slap noise. And our sim­ple-yet-ele­gant link­age pro­tec­tors stop mud and rocks thrown by the tire, keep­ing your beau­ti­ful bike beautiful.

If it's our fault, we'll fix it. Sim­ple as that.
