Take a gander at the brand new 2020 Niner RIP 9. 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 2020 RIP 9 is here to sit upon the throne as the king of the mountain.
The Niner RIP 9 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 2020 Niner is longer, slacker, and lower than any bike Niner has ever made, and it even features a geometry flip chip if you want to get extra low (65-degree HA in low setting). Compared to the previous generation, the 2020 model also has a wider and stiffer rib cage main triangle for precise handling, clearance for 2.6” tires, and a refined suspension curve for a sensitive early stroke and supportive mid stroke. Also, if you like to tinker on your own bike, you’ll love how the 2020 RIP 9 has full sleeve internal cable guides, factory installed frame protection, and durable long-lasting Enduro Max Black Oxide pivot bearings.
