Niner Air 9 Alloy With Fox Float RL Fork
Ready to build up a set of big wheels? Niner and Fox make an impeccable team. JensonUSA has paired the Niner Air 9 alloy frameset with the Fox Float RL fork for an unbeatable package. This pair will get you off to a great start.
The Air 9 is Niners fast, light, geared-only alloy racing hardtail. This upgraded version integrates hydroformed tubing throughout. More than a cosmetic feature, hydroforming allows Niner to shape tubes and optimize strength and stiffness in key areas, giving the ability to create beautifully tuned frames with precise ride characteristics. You will find hydroforming in the toptube, downtube, headtube, chainstays and seatstays.
Because of the larger welding area created by the new tapered headtube, we are able to include a massive hydroformed downtube as well as a significantly larger diameter toptube, contributing to a much stronger frame. Chainstays, seat tube and seatstays also benefit from hydroforming via controlled wall thicknesses and enhanced butting profiles. This translates to a rear triangle that is tuned for stiffness, strength and vertical compliance – in other words, ideal ride feel.
The Air 9 features a tapered headtube with an integrated headset. By allowing for the use of the newest generation of 1.5” tapered steerer suspension forks and integrated headset, Niner create the stiffest front end possible – leading to amazing steering precision as you carve a corner and descend toward the finish line, with the same stack height as their original Air 9 model. Additionally, the updated Air 9 now features anodizing friendly tubing, allowing folks to get a rugged and extra-light finish in a stealthy black with low profile logos.
The Fox Float (F29) was paired with the Air 9 for a smooth ride. With 110mm of suspension, you'll be able to roll over large rocks, roots, and debris with ease. Adjustable rebound and lockout allow customization of the fork, for the terrain you ride.
