Niner RDO Carbon 29" Fork

Niner RDO Carbon 29" Fork

Niner’s RDO Fork embodies the simplicity of mountain biking’s rigid yesteryears and dowses it in today’s dynamic modern technology. The RDO Fork takes Niner’s Carbon Fork and then latches a beefy 15mm RockShox Maxle through axle to it, delivering the precision steering and torsional stiffness needed to tame a 29” horse. In addition to the gobs of stiffness naturally produced by the 15mm axle and carbon construction, the RDO Fork places the cherry on top with a carbon tapered steerer tube.

The RDO Fork truly capitalizes on the damping characteristics of carbon and how it can be used to enhance the ride quality on the trail. Instead of merely bonding an aluminum pipe to a set of carbon blades and calling it a fork, Niner’s monocoque design is a one piece carbon fork that completely eliminates bonded sections. Unlike three-piece bonded forks which often have stress risers in transitions between different materials, the monocoque sculpture greatly reduces weight, and not only retains its strength, but actually increases it.

Understanding the science of carbon fiber properties, Niner shaped the outside of the RDO Fork in way that disperses impact energy throughout the entire structure to dampen trail vibrations before they make their way to the riders hands, and without throwing off steering control.

This fork may be titled “Race Day Optimized (RDO),” but it’s safe to say it’s for anyone seeking a stiffer, lighter, stronger and more forgiving front end than ever before.

Comments about Niner RDO Carbon 29" Fork:

At least it's light and matches the frame. The original 490 steel fork is way better.

Super Nice

By Aaron

from Riverside, CA

Comments about Niner RDO Carbon 29" Fork:

Adds a TON of stiffness to the front of the bike compared to other forks and saves a bunch of weight. I made mine even lighter by opting for the MAXLE STEALTH aftermarket option (ditches the QR lever for a hex fitting and saves ~30g).

This thing totally changes the way your bike tracks though the rough stuff, yet is somehow more compliant. The best rigid fork money can buy. Worth every penny... Love it!

    • A:

      No, this is a tapered steer. I believe its 1 1/8 to 1 1/2 taper.
