Trail bikes are good at many things. They are able to conquer the climbs and dominate the descents with ease. When it comes to Niner, the RIP 9 RDO trail bike has ruled the off-road lineup. The evolution is the Niner RIP 9 RDO 29 3-Star Bike. It starts with an RDO carbon frame that has 140mm of travel on the rear and 150mm of travel on the front. The CVA suspension is built to be supple yet stable, controlling unwanted suspension movement with calibrated anti-squat, yet remaining active while climbing and descending. With the flip-chip on the frame, you'll be able to ride with two different geometries based on your style of riding.
The 3-Star version of the Niner RIP 9 RDO comes with a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain. This includes a cassette that has a hill-crushing 10-52T gear range that makes climbing and pedaling through rough terrain much easier. SRAM G2 R hydraulic disc brakes provide excellent stopping power so you can descend with confidence. DT Swiss M 1900 wheels are paired with Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires that can be set up tubeless for a smoother ride, better traction, and fewer flats. With the KS LEV Si dropper post, you'll be able to quickly change your center of gravity by lifting and lowering your saddle with the press of a lever.
