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.
