Niner Air 9 1 Star Deore Bike

Niner AIR 9 1-Star Deore Bike

World Cup performance at a privateer price

Just cause you don’t race for a factory team doesn’t mean you can’t ride a factory race bike. Niner wanted to build a bike for serious riders who don’t want to spend serious cash, and to say their efforts were fruitful would be an understatement. They came up with the Air 9, a high performance aluminum hardtail designed to drop hammers on XC trails. By hydroforming the tubing, Niner was able to control the shape and wall thickness. This process saves weight wherever possible, and increases integrity in high-stress areas. Rigidity is maintained in areas of the front triangle to provide optimal power transfer, and flex is encouraged in other areas to provide a super smooth ride. A PressFit 30 bottom bracket and a 142 x 12 thru axle were also utilized to increase efficiency and save weight.

The Air 9 1-Star comes complete with a Rockshox Reba RL Solo Air to keep the front end light and help carry speed through rough sections. The Shimano Deore 10-speed drivetrain provides ample gearing for climbing, descending, and everything in between. The Niner Alloy wheels are light and stiff, and the Maxxis Icon tires grip well and roll fast, while keeping rotating weight low. Niner’s aluminum stem and bars provide you with a cockpit you can trust when the trail gets sketchy. Shimano Deore brakes make sure you can keep it all under control, and a Niner custom saddle keeps you comfortable on long rides. Most importantly, all these components work well together to create a fun and fast XC experience.

Features

  • Hydroformed aluminum frame is light and stiff
  • 120mm of plush travel

The pic shows the bike dressed up with SLX, but the specs say Deore...which is it?
Ben on Oct 2, 2016
Are the specified niner alloy wheels and the maxxis Icon tires tubeless compatible? It will be a deal breaker if not..
