Niner Air 9 RDO 2 Star slx rs bike 2017

setting the mark for XC performance

Niner completely redesigned their AIR 9 RDO recently. Anyone familiar with the brand knows they have a history that is rooted in the evolution of mountain biking. From the introduction of their first hardtail, they’ve worked tirelessly to break the boundaries of what people think is possible when it comes to the construction, geometry and handling of premium bicycles. They don’t just put out steamrollers, and their Air 9 RDO SLX build is an absolute testament to that.

Niner wanted to build a carbon frame that was as strong and durable as possible, so they put in the time and effort to master the craft. For starters, they learned that the layers of carbon cloth need to be properly aligned with as few voids and extra resin as possible. Therefore, the AIR 9 RDO frame is built using their very own Carbon Compaction System. By wrapping carbon around an EPS foam internal mandrel and then compacting the entire system inside a mold, they can control wall thickness throughout the frame and force out any excessive resin while the frame cures. What they achieve is a 10% reduction in frame weight with a fully-engineered carbon layup that delivers everything you want in a hardtail XC race bike. Ideal material is combined with snappy and responsive geometry to create your new favorite bike.

Complete with a Rockshox Reba RL fork is built to handle whatever the trail puts in front you. Niner alloy wheels save weight and provide excellent efficiency, and an alloy Niner bar and seatpost show you that they’re good at making more than just frames. Their components are not only light, but also handle with ideal responsiveness and stiff reliability. The SLX 11 speed drivetrain features a 11-42T cassette to get you up, and back down, whatever comes your way.
