Robin Wallner Rides the Ripmo

The Swede finds speed aboard Ibis' newest bike

The Ripmo is Ibis’ take on a longer-travel 29er. Based on senior writer Ryan Palmer’s First Ride review, the company did a bang-up job. Robin Wallner seems to agree. His start to the EWS season indicates a deep appreciation for the bike. Wallner found himself on the podium at the first EWS stop in Chile. Shortly after, he performed well in Columbia, putting him in second place overall. But this video was shot before all of that. This was Wallner’s introduction to the bike. It looks like they became fast friends.
