Niner RIP 9 3 Star XT 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.

The Niner RIP 9 XT Bike features an impressive component spec that is ideal for racers and trail riders alike. RockShox is well known within the industry for producing high-end suspension components that are easy to setup and use. Therefore, it was only logical that Niner chose to incorporate the RockShox Revelation RCT3 Solo Air fork with one of their leading cross-country race frame. The RockShox Revelation RCT3 Solo Air fork features 130mm of smooth suspension travel for eating up the trail. The 15mm axle and tapered head tube ensure the front end is stiff, helping maintain excellent steering, especially when riding winding single track or switchbacks. Shimano XT is known as the workhorse of the brand. Shimano XT components are built to be tough, without tipping the scale. The Shimano XT 10 speed drivetrain provides smooth, accurate, and fast shifting. There will be no sloppy shifts with Shimano XT. Stan’s NoTubes Flow EX wheels are heavy duty yet lightweight wheelset that will take a beating without weighing you down. A Niner signature carbon cockpit rounds out this build, making it the perfect blend of quality, weight, strength, and speed.
