Niner Air 9 SLX 11 SPD Jenson Bike

Niner Air 9 SLX 11 Speed Jenson Bike

Jenson’s own custom XC machine

Having been in the big-wheeled game since the very beginning, Niner takes pride in building their bikes. Highly innovative and forward thinking, they’re one of the most revered brands in cycling. Since their early days they have known the importance of perfecting their frame materials and geometry. Their latest Air 9 has all bases covered. A low bottom bracket and short rear end make the bike tight and nimble when the terrain beckons, and the proper XC head tube angle gives it the chops to climb like a goat, keeping the steering nimble and agile.

Niner’s Air 9 frame is nothing short of iconic. It combines World Cup tested geometry and aluminum's reliability. The new AIR 9 is comprised of hydroformed aluminum alloy, a light and stiff material that absorbs shock and transfers power instantly. You'll benefit from Niner's years of hardtail experience with the unique ride quality of a high-end alloy frame. The feel of a hardtail like this is unique, precise and efficient, and is even better with the big wheels.

The Shimano SLX 11-speed components that feature prominently on this build are precise and dependable. Meeting at the perfect crux of price point and performance makes them ride excellently while staying easily attainable. The 1 x 11 drive train features an 11-42T cassette that can get you through almost 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 conquer the trail without conquering your wallet.

Features

  • Hydroformed Alloy frame is stiff and light, with Thru Axle rear for excellent stiffness
  • Excellent geometry lets this bike climb and descend with ease
  • Shimano SLX 11-Speed components preform awesome at a low price point
  • Tubeless Spank Oozy Trail 295 wheels provide fast-rolling stiffness and excellent tire profile with extra-wide rims.
  • Low and wide cockpit utilizes Race Face components to provide optimal handling
  • Stealth Dropper Post Routing in case you want to get a little more gnarly

Great Bike and Great Service
I strongly recommend using JensonUSA. They contacted me right away about a small ding found on the bike during it's pre-assemble and testing. They could have easily not mentioned it, but chose to be up front and honest as soon as it was noticed. They generously offered a gift card if I still wanted the bike, which I did.

The bike was received faster than noted on their website and the packing was excellent. They were very quick to respond to an email about assembling the bike, which turned out to be super easy.

I love the bike. Moving away from a 4 year old Trek (Marlin), the Air9 is like night and day. I can't believe how much more control I have on the trails and how much faster I am with this bike. As a matter of fact, the good friend who talked me into the Niner, offered to buy it when he laid eyes on it. Of course, I said no.

All and all a great experience. I immediately turned around and bought the EMD9 for my wife. Again, I highly recommend JensonUSA and Niner bikes..

Killer build/cost
This thing far exceeded my expectations. In fact it actually come with a niner carbon handlebar, not the ride as described. Fork is the only weak link, but it works good enough for a couple seasons, then I'll upgrade. No complaints about the bike.

Is the fork coil or air?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Solo Air. It's a Recon Silver 32 TK
Are the Racing Ralph Performance line tires on this bike tubeless capable? I have an Industry9 Trail S wheel set I would like to mount them tubeless on.
sean h on Feb 20, 2017
Is it drop seat post comparable and if so is it internal cable ready?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yup, you can use a "stealth" internally routed dropper on this bike. You will need a 31.6mm post.
Can I chose to upgrade the fork for this bike or is the build kit unchangeable?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The build kit on this bike is not customizable, sorry for the inconvenience.
Is the bottom bracket eccentric?
Rick on Apr 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Good question! This bike does not include an eccentric bottom bracket. The stock bottom bracket is a Race Face BSA threaded external bottom bracket with a SRAM PF30 to threaded adaptor. However, you can purchase the Niner BioCentric II bottom bracket aftermarket and install it in this frame to convert it to single speed.
Is it a clutch rear der?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes
