The Niner Air 9 Carbon is Niner’s lastest iteration of the well known Air 9 frame. Niner has proven year after year that they have 29er hardtail geometory down, which they are demonstrating yet again with the new Air 9 Carbon. Although it’s technically not an RDO, it borrows the mold and several other features previously only seen on the RDO.
The Air 9 Carbon features internally routed shifter cables, thinner tube profiles, smaller junctions, carbon molded headset races, a newly positioned rear disc brake post mounts, and a PF30 carbon bottom bracket shell. Niner decided to go with a PF30 bottom bracket shell for the Air 9 Carbon geared-only carbon hardtail. The PF30 bottom bracket shell allows for 24mm or 30mm spindle cranks to be installed, however this frame is not compatible with an EBB (hence ‘geared-only’). Also, repositioning the rear brake mount inside the chainstay has helped make the whole rear end much stiffer. Niner is now using tapered headtubes on all their new frames creating a stiffer front end which drastically improves the handling. On the new Air 9 Carbon, Niner also decided to go with a very sleek integrated headset that is lightweight and easy to install and maintain.
The new Air 9 Carbon is an awesome bike that anyone could enjoy. Although it’s technically not ‘Race Day Optimized’, this bike is as much at home at XC races as it is at riding your weekend loop. Providing their proven hardtail geometry on a lightweight carbon frame Niner definitely knew what they were doing when they designed the new Air 9 Carbon.
This particular Air 9 Carbon 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.
