Niner RLT 9 Steel 2 Star Apex Bike

Niner RLT 9 Steel 2 Star Apex

STEEL ADVENTURE SEEKER

Some things are just timeless. Like red brick is to buildings, steel is to bicycles. You may have noticed that finely constructed steel frames, crafted and welded by the best builders continue to be highly sought after for their unblemished combination of form and function. So it only made sense for Niner to re-skeleton their aluminum RLT 9 with supple, trustworthy Reynolds 853 Steel in order to breed the perfect adventuring rig. The RLT 9 Steel is a no brainer for mounting up your panniers and a sweet rack, rounding up the gang and pedaling out for a weekend of building campfires, pitching tents, and traveling the road less traveled.

Like the aluminum RLT, the RLT Steel was intentionally built for the curious and spontaneous. Its starts with the 853 tubing which excels at absorbing and smoothening out road chatter, while maintaining a carbon-like stiffness and responsiveness. If you mainly stick to the pavement or fire roads you can use 700c wheels to run road or cross tires, or if you want something a little wider (up to 1.75”) you can use a 29” wheelset thanks to the 142mm rear hub spacing. The slightly longer chainstays, slightly lower bottom bracket, and slacker head tube angle make this a real gravel grinder for the long haul.

To make this a bike you can truly ride on and off road all day, the RLT 9 Steel features a gravel-tuned, custom painted Niner Carbon fork to eat up all those road and “not-road” vibrations. Connecting the dots between classic frame design and modern technology, the RLT 9 Steel is augmented with thru-axle technology and a tapered steel headtube, greatly improving the overall ride quality.

The RLT 9 Steel features uses a PF30 bottom bracket shell allowing you to run it geared or single speed with Niner’s BioCentric 30. Some of the clever, less-noticeable frame features include rear rack pannier braze-ons for when the adventure lasts longer than a few hours, and three sport-beer compatible water bottle mounts ensuring you have fuel in places that don't.

The RLT 9 Steel is exactly what you’d think of when hearing that Niner made a 700c, steel drop bar bike: beautiful, versatile and ready to seek.
