NINER TECHNOLOGY

Because the lower swingarm linkage is located underneath the bottom bracket, chain torque in any chainring effectively neutralizes the unwanted forces that degrade power transfer to the rear wheel.

Rather than just offering the same carbon products, Niner makes sure they are maximizing the benefits of the material so that their carbon products are purpose-built from the ground up.

The basic concept of the larger diameter is simple: it will keep your wheels on top of oncoming obstacles. Rather than riding IN the terrain, you'll be riding ABOVE it, gaining more control and stability on even the roughest trails.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Niner JET 9 RDO 5-Star XX1 Carbon Bike

The guys at Niner take design seriously - riders know that Niner carbon comes with a guarantee of strength, quality and technical expertise. When it came to updating the Jet 9 RDO, their engineering team had a tough job - how do you improve a frame that has already surpassed rigorous design and testing parameters as well as garnered glowing reviews from media and riders around the globe? The answer lies in the details. They updated the Jet 9 RDO to new standards, added a sleek carbon rocker link and found every place where updates can improve strength, weight and performance. Expertise radiates from the carbon forms and flowing lines that have to be “just so” rather than “just another.” Any bike can take you from here to there, only the Jet 9 RDO can do it with the panache you expect from Niner.

  • RDO Full Suspension
  • 100mm of CVA suspension
  • Compatible with 100 - 120mm forks
  • Carbon suspension linkage
  • 142x12mm Maxle rear spacing

Fantastic XC bike to handle a wide variety of terrain. Corners on rails and made me faster hands down. Better results and times over last season.
