THE ALL NEW RIPLEY AF
The Ripley AF is our beloved, category-defying,
short-travel, singletrack-scorching Ripley—rendered in
aluminum and with a touch more aggressive geometry.
All the sizzle and pop of the carbon Ripley is now available
as a complete bike at a wallet friendly, $5,500.
This bike is a multi-talented shapeshifter; a light, snappy,
fast, fun, incredibly versatile bike that can get a whole
heckuvalot more rad than its 120mm travel and gossamer
weight implies. And making it out of aluminum only
broadens the Ripley’s already broad appeal. It still rips like
a Ripley. But it also costs a whole lot less than the carbon
version, and is, well, more metal
A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle (that’s
a degree slacker than the carbon version) and short
(44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels
makes for a super planted but still playful, precise but
still nimble front end feel. Meanwhile, a 76-degree seat
angle puts your power directly to the pedals, and the
short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics
deliver that power without squandering a single watt.
