Leave it to the legendary minds at Ibis to create a trail-dominating, brilliantly efficient, 29-inch wheeled work of art. Ibis's Ripley 29 Deore XT-WX makes every trail more fun with a high-tech carbon 120mm-travel frame that includes all the goodies: dw-link suspension, super stiff eccentric links, and a beefy, threaded bottom bracket. While the frame is a gem, the wonder of this build is the featherweight, full carbon Ibis 941 Ultra Wide Carbon wheelset that will have you leaving your competition, mouth agape, struggling in your wake. What's it all mean? This rig climbs like a race whip, slays the corners and annihilates the downhills. The 11-speed Shimano Deore XT drivetrain delivers buttery smooth, crisp shifts across all conditions, while letting you spin up the steep stuff. What about the drop back down? Don't worry, you'll have a rock-solid Shimano Deore XT hydraulic disc brake set for speed modulation. When you consider its weight and travel, it's fully capable of hanging with the XC crowd on climbs and the enduro guys on the descents, and it even has two water bottle mounts.
