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 3-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 3-Star version of the Niner Rip 9 RDO comes with the same SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain as the 2-Star but has an upgraded suspension and wheel package. It comes with a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed shifter with a SRAM GX Eagle rear derailleur, SRAM GX Eagle chain, and SRAM Eagle XG 1275 cassette with 10-50 tooth gearing so you can ride on any terrain. The SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes provide the confidence-inspiring stopping power you need for any descent. The 3-Star version features a Fox 36 Float Factory fork with 160mm travel and a FIT4 damper so you can adjust the fork on the fly, and Fox Float DPX2 Factory EVOL with a 3-position lever. Both have Fox's Kashima Coat which provides a durable shock that is buttery smooth. Stan's NoTubes provides the wheelset with their ZTR Flow MK3 which provides a tubeless ready setup so you can run lower tire pressures for increased traction and a smoother ride. If you're looking for the ultimate mountain bike, then you'll love the 2018 Niner Rip 9 RDO 3-Star Bike.
