NINER TECHNOLOGY

For every model, whether it's their lightest cross country hardtail or the burliest full suspension bike, Niner considers how each angle or length will interact with big wheels to affect the finished build.

View Details >

Niner believes that your alloy bike should incorporate all of the same high end features and technologies as any top of the line carbon bike. Niner uses the most current alloy shaping technology.

View Details >

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 RLT 9 Frameset

The guys at Niner are big fans of the Road Less Traveled. Making independent choices is how they were founded and is how they approach the future. It is with this philosophy that they created their newest effort.

Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel ginder? YES. - Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, it all depends on where you want to go. The RLT 9 doesn't define you by where you have been, but encourages you to become someone new, to take the left turn and to leave the constraints of the yellow lines behind.

The first Niner designed for both 29 and 700C wheels. Run narrower wheels and tires for brief journeys away from the beaten path, try something bigger for places where terrain is uncertain but adven¬ture is guaranteed. Hydroformed Tubing and Construction Details – Designed with a tube set similar to the proven AIR 9, the RLT 9’s tube shapes are shaped to meet Niner’s ride quality standards. Even riders who prefer the company of saguaros to the cacophony of crowds appreciate comfort and low weight. Proprietary forged dropouts are designed to reduce weight and integrate the low-profile post brake mount with the chain¬stay. 27.2mm seatpost reduces road vibrations on gravel or chip seal roads and reduces body fatigue on all-day rides. When paired with the RDO Seatpost (designed for twice the flex of traditional carbon posts), fatigue is reduced even further.
