Pros Lightweight, playful, well-rounded, modern geometry, solid component specificationOutstanding all around performance, more capable on the descents than its predecessor, great climber, excellent buildExcellent climbing abilities, impressive downhill performance, high fun factor, tremendous build kitVery stable at speed, hard charging, amazing build, supportive pedal platform, great deep stroke supportWell-rounded, modern geometry, fun on a wide range of terrain, more capable than previous model
Cons Not a brawler, Fox 34 fork can be overwhelmedExpensive, still not a full-on enduro bike, a touch on the heavy sideExpensive, pivots came loose a few times during testingBuild tested is expensive, somewhat less maneuverable than previous version, can feel sluggish at lower speedsA little heavy for carbon, chattery over high frequency chop
Bottom Line The new and improved Ibis Ripley is one of the best all around mid-travel trail bikes we've ever riddenThe best gets even better, and the V2 Ripmo is the best all-around trail bike we've ever testedA killer daily driver that delivers feathery climbing performance and well-rounded downhill performanceLonger, slacker, burlier, the redesigned Hightower is a hard charging 29-inch trail bikeCapable, versatile, and hard-charging, the new Tallboy is a fresh take on Santa Cruz's shorter travel 29er
