Riding the Ibis Ripmo in Innerleithen

We’re delighted to announce that Tweed Valley Bikes has become the first Ibis Demo Centre in the UK, giving you the chance to experience their bikes on the perfect testing ground of the Tweed Valley trail network.

Ibis might have flown a little under the radar in the UK recently but this high quality Californian brand has been making brilliant bikes since back near the start of the sport in 1981 with some of the best engineered and most individual models in the history of the sport to their name.

Ibis Oso

Known for designs that stand out from the norm and with 42 years producing and racing bikes at the highest level they have a huge amount of experience that shines through in their range of elegant, lightweight and clean machines. 

All the way from the svelte Hakka gravel bike to the hard hitting HD6 Enduro race rig, you’ll find the same meticulous attention to detail and with every bike backed by a lifetime frame, rim and frame bushing warranty they have your back should the unthinkable happen.

With their mountain bikes refined by years of racing with numerous podiums and wins at world level on the Enduro and XC circuits, you can be sure the on trail performance is bang on. Using the iconic DW Link the suspension linkage removes the need for a heavily damped shock, giving a great pedalling platform during the climbs while preserving a supple and responsive ride on the descents. 

Riding the Ibis Ripmo

Coming as standard on all Ibis full suspension bikes their custom suspension ‘Traction Tune’ allows a supple ride thanks to a lighter damping tune on the fork and shock, giving an active ride and the user more usable range when fine tuning their bike.
