Niner WFO 9 Jenson GX 11-Speed Bike

An Efficient Pedaler for All-Mountain Magic

If you mentioned the concept of a 29er on big terrain a few years ago, there is a good chance you would’ve been laughed at by riders and industry professionals everywhere. Here we are in 2014, and the Niner WFO 9 is one of the industry’s first long-travel big-wheelers, and boy is it equipped and ready for a good time!

This All-Mountain masher is ready to shed some light on what 29” wheels can do when you give them nearly 6” of travel to play with. The progressive “confidence inspiring” geometry provides slack enough angles that you might even find yourself contemplating on racing this beast Downhill. Yet it’s not so slack that you’d find it difficult cornering tight turns or climbing. The WFO is constructed with air formed tubing which allows for careful shaping and control over wall thickness to optimize strength and stiffness in key areas. These hydroformed tubes paired with the tapered headtube and 12x142mm rear axle ensure the WFO remains stiff and strong from head to rear axle.

The WFO doesn’t handle like any other long-travel bike you’ve ever ridden before. The 29” wheel platform provides a shallower angle of attack when riding over obstacles, which increases your ability to get down the most rutted sections with ease, while the tapered headtube reduces fork deflection, keeping your line straight and true. The long-travel and big wheels will eat up just about anything that dares to get in your way. You’ll find yourself getting down some seriously sketchy sections quicker and easier than before.

The WFO 9 features Niner’s patented CVA suspension which is the only suspension system created for the sole purpose to be used on 29” bikes. In other words, they did not modify suspension that was created for a 26” wheel. The CVA suspension was created with the goal of crafting an efficient suspension platform for the 29" bike. Due to the location of the lower pivot bolt, chain torque effectively isolates and cancels out the forces that can create inefficiency in pedal stroke. The result is unparalleled pedal efficiency, and remarkable sensitivity. CVA has excellent small bump compliance, to ensure that your ride is as smooth as it is fast.

This Jenson USA exclusive build pairs the WFO 9 with components from SRAM's praised X1 and GX group. The wide range GX drivetrain brings SRAM's 11-speed mountain drivetrain to the masses with a lower price point without sacrificing performance. while the GX is slightly heavier than Sram's offerings, you'll still be offered a wide gear range thanks to the Sram XG 1150 10-42 teeth cassette. Race Face's Ride Narrow 32 teeth 1x powers their own Turbine wheels wrapped with Schwalbe Nobby Nic's 29-inch tires.

With its slack headtube, shorter top tube and chainstays, long-travel, and SRAM GX set-up, after it’s all said and done, the Niner WFO 9 is the closest thing to a downhill 29er. The larger 29” wheel size gobbles up roots, rocks and ruts so much its almost unfair, while the new geometry allows it to still handle with the precision and flickability of its smaller wheeled relatives. The CVA suspension system makes climbing much more efficient, reducing wasteful bob and maximizing power transfer. Between the bigger wheel size, the nearly 6” of travel, and the new geometry and suspension system, the WFO 9 is faster and smother, both up hill and downhill; a pure bred Enduro machine that’ll turn heads... quickly!

Comments about Niner WFO 9 Jenson X1/GX Bike 2015:

Really cool bike. Handles like a 29er but is insanely versatile, fast, and stable on the trails. I'd recommend it to anyone who has tried riding a 29er before and wants to take things to an extreme level.

Comments about Niner WFO 9 Jenson X1/GX Bike 2015:

I waited for a few months of riding and miles to rate my bike. So far it has exceeded all my expectations. I have taken this bike deep into Pisgah and had no issues. I can not believe how forgiving it is. I have had numerous admirers and questions about it.
Thanks

big bike, big capablilities

Comments about Niner WFO 9 Jenson X1/GX Bike 2015:

The Niner WFO 9 is certainly a capable machine. The bike is very well specked with a smart choice of components. The new xt brakes are great, and it is important to note it has a x1 RD instead of GX. The cockpit is well thought out with 760mm bars and a short stem. The suspension dos not get any better then the pike and monarch plus. The bike is an primary decender, but is capable to do light trail riding thanks to its reasonable weight at about 30.5 for Med (not 28.5). The rims are not TR, but are a perfect canidate for 1 inch gorilla tape conversion. The only concerning problem is that the turbine dropper is a piece of junk. it is light, but if the cable tension isn't perfect, then the post will slip on you left and right. so, expect some problems with it. I ride bootleg canyon in Boulder City, NV and it handles it very, very well. if you enjoy long technical decents, its great, but if light trail riding is primarly what you do, then its to much bike.
