Long travel bikes are becoming the norm in the mountain biking world and there is a good reason for it. Advancements in suspension technology have made it so long travel mountain bikes can descend smoothly and still climb efficiently. The 2018 Niner Rip 9 RDO 2-Star Bike is here to sit upon the throne as the king of the mountain. It features an RDO carbon frame which is both lightweight and incredibly durable and perfect for the trails. The frame features Niner's CVA, or Constant Varying Arc, suspension design which lets you climb efficiently and descend smoothly. It features Boost hub spacing on the front and rear that delivers a stiffer and more predictable ride. The frame is compatible with either 29x2.5" tires or 27.5x3.0" tires so you can have the ultimate traction for any terrain. You can route a dropper post internally or externally and the Jet 9 RDO is electronic drivetrain wiring friendly.
The 2-Star version of the Niner Rip 9 RDO comes with a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain that is incredibly simple and highly versatile. It comes with a SRAM GX Eagle shifter, SRAM GX Eagle rear derailleur, SRAM GX Eagle chain, and SRAM Eagle XG 1275 cassette that has 10-50 tooth gearing so you can ride in any terrain efficiently. The SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes provide confidence-inspiring stopping power for any descent and the KS Lev SI dropper seat post will allow you to climb efficiently and descend safely with just the press of a button. The 2-Star comes with a RockShox Yari RC Solo Air fork with 160mm of travel and a Fox Float DPX2 Performance rear shock with a 3-position lever so you can adjust it to the terrain you're on. If you're looking for the king of the trails, then you'll love the 2018 Niner RIP 9 RDO 2-Star Bike.

First of all, a big thank you to Jenson USA for fast and secure shipping. The bike was also very easy to assemble right out of the box. Special mention to Joey Claro who helped me with a smooth transaction. To the bike. The bike is very adaptable to all kinds of off road riding. From fire roads to state park trails it tackles them with ease. The geometry is spot on for my anatomy, the suspension is easily tuned in, and feeling of being "in the bike" opposed to "on the bike" are three big reasons IMHO to making your ride enjoyable and not a difficult task. As a result, it inspires me to find ways to better myself as a rider. Would definitely recommend this bike to anyone. Thank you Niner!!!
