Niner Air 9 SLX 11 SPD Jenson Bike

the xc race warrior

Niner has enjoyed the success of being one of the most popular big-wheeled bike makers in the industry, but they’re focused on making much more than just making steam rollers. Since their early days they have known the importance of perfecting their frame materials and geometry. Their Air 9 has both of these assets. A low bottom bracket and short rear end make the bike tight and nimble when the trail calls for it, and the steep head tube angle gives it the chops to climb like a goat.

Niner’s Air 9 frame is nothing short of iconic. It combines World Cup tested geometry and high end alloy reliability. The new AIR 9 is comprised of hydroformed alloy, a light and stiff material that absorbs shock and transfers power optimally. Riders benefit from years of hardtail experience with the unique ride quality of a high end alloy frame. The feel of a hardtail like this is unique and efficient, which is why it has survived so many years of cycling innovation.

The Shimano SLX components that feature prominently on this build are precise and dependable. Meeting at the perfect crux of price point and performance makes them ride excellent while staying easily attainable. The 1 x 11 drive train features an 11-42T cassette that can get you through any grade of terrain with ease. The Race Face cockpit is wide and low, offering optimal control on the trail. Race Face’s Turbine wheels have a low rotating weight and terrific integrity. Complete with a Rockshox XC fork up front, this bike is built to smooth out the trail without smoothing out your bank account.
