Niner RIP 9 X7 Bike

The RIP 9 embodies a passion for mountain biking. Air Formed tubing increases the strength and rigidity of the Rip 9. Shaping the frame tubes with compressed air in a heated mold gives greater control over the wall thickness and material uniformity, alloqing the use of less metal.. Its not just a bike, it’s a form of art. The tapered headtube helps to keep the front end stiff. There are over 10 forged or extruded parts on the RIP 9. The frame and hardware have all gone through a painstaking process of FEA mechanical stress testing and real world testing. This ensured that they were as light and strong as possible. This resulted in increased stiffness everywhere without adding extra weight. The RIP 9 features Niner’s patented CVA suspension. CVA suspension is the only 29er specific suspension design. CVA is the only suspension designed to take advantage of the increased bottom braket drop of 29ers. CVA offers efficient pedaling in all chainrings.

This particular RIP 9 is built up with a blend of quality components from SRAM’s X7 group. Designed for the mountain biker who is looking for solid components at a reasonable price point, the X7 group consists of durable components that won’t let you down on the trail. The SRAM X7 rear derailleur uses their Exact Actuation Technology to provide crisp, smooth shifting under the extremely demanding conditions found out on the trail. Shifting is controlled by SRAM X7 trigger shifters that also use the Exact Actuation technology to provide effortless shifts. The package is rounded off by Niner branded cockpit components and American Classic Terrain wheels to create a cross country machine that flows effortlessly through endless single track.

  • Airformed alloy full suspension from the 29er only mountain bike company
  • 125mm of patented CVA suspension is efficient in every chainring

Comments about Niner RIP 9 1 Star X7 Bike:

I ride in Arizona where the trails are either rocky or sand hard pack. This bike loves the rocks, the 125mm rear x 142x12 feels great nice and stiff. The fork (RS Sector) is giving me some slow speed compression endos, not sure what's wrong yet, running proper air pressure. tried +5 and 10 psi and still happens. I'm 6'3" and the Large fits just fine. I put XT on mine and now the brakes are way better then the junk it came with. Also added a Thomson Dropper Elite and the weight is around 28lbs. Stock wheels.

Comments about Niner RIP 9 1 Star X7 Bike:

Having test ridden comparable bikes from Santa Cruz, Specialized and Giant, the RIP9 has the edge in performance. If you've read the pro reviews on the RIP9 they are accurate; the frame is stiff like carbon, and the suspension sucks up everything and pedals very well. You will be surprised how much speed you can carry through rough climbs and chunky decents. The only downs on the 1 star build are tepid performance of the brakes (avid elixer 1) and the weak side wall Schwalbe Racing Ralph tires. Don't bother going tubless unless you find new tires. Everything else works very well. I've already put 200 miles of smiles on her!
