Niner RIP 9 RDO 3 Star XT Bike

The Niner RIP 9, just got a little sweeter. The Niner RIP 9 RDO was designed around the notion of diversity. Equally at home on grueling climbs as it is at enduro riding, the RIP 9 is perfect for those riders who want one bike that does it all. The Rip 9 utilizes Niner’s patented CVA suspension and delivers 125mm of fully active travel with superb compliance and damping via a tuned for CVA Fox Float CTD Factory Shock with Trail Adjust and Kashima Coat. Niner paid special attention to detail in order to obtain the best possible ride. The tapered headtube increases surface area which allows a larger down tube, further increasing the strength and rigidity at the critical intersection. The tapered fork steerer tube reduces fork deflection, which makes for better tracking.

The Niner RIP 9 RDO 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.

Comments about Niner RIP 9 RDO 3 Star XT Bike 2014:

This bike fits my needs from all mountain trail riding to Enduro events. The suspension platforms really make this bike a one quiver bike. Perfect balance of lightweight and durability. I am a previous Niner (jet9) owner, I wanted a CF do it all bike and this one fits the need very well. The XT groupo and Stans wheelset make this bike a great value. I read several reviews on this bike and totally agree now that I have ridden my own RIP 9 RDO.
