Wide, Full Open. That’s what the name means. Let ‘er go, full throttle, don’t slow down for anything, that’s what the name implies. With 5.5” of plush CVA™ suspension technology underfoot, there’s nothing stopping your 29” wheels except the human instinct to live another day.
“Quiver Killer” meets carbon. 2 years in development, Niner’s highly anticipated and requested carbon trail bike finally makes an appearance. The RIP 9 RDO incorporates global rider feedback as well as Niner’s rigorous carbon design, engineering and testing standards. Our alloy RIP 9 has over 30 glowing media reviews for ride quality and handling - the RIP 9 RDO takes these characteristics and ups the ante with carbon frame, linkages, ISCG compatibility and additional travel.
How many bikes have over 30 glowing media reviews from around the world including 5 of the major US mountain bike magazines, including Best 29er and Consumer Choice Awards? The R.I.P. 9 lays claim to all of this as well as the feedback from thousands of stoked riders in over 34 countries.
We at Niner take design seriously - riders know that Niner carbon comes with a guarantee of strength, quality and technical expertise. When it came to updating our Jet 9 RDO, our engineering team had a tough job - how do you improve a frame that has already surpassed rigorous design and testing parameters as well as garnered glowing reviews from media and riders around the globe? The answer lies in the details. We have updated the Jet 9 RDO to new standards, added a sleek carbon rocker link and found every place where updates can improve strength, weight and performance. Expertise radiates from the carbon forms and flowing lines that have to be “just so” rather than “just another.” Any bike can take you from here to there, only the Jet 9 RDO can do it with the panache you expect from Niner.
For riders who want something beautiful, versatile and fun, we present the Jet 9 Carbon. Described as "...truly an eye opener" by the guys at Bike Mag, the 100mm of CVA™ suspension can handle both your weekend races and light trail bike efforts - without flinching and without breaking the bank.
The Jet 9 Carbon features the same geometry and handling characteristics as the Jet 9 RDO, and is available in a range of carefully planned complete bike options - all designed to get you out on the trail and out from behind your desk.
The Jet 9 is the alloy sibling in our race-ready full suspension family. Short travel combined with a 29” wheel creates an amazingly smooth and efficient ride, making the Jet 9 the perfect weapon for your local race scene or all day epics. If it’s speed you are looking for, the Jet 9 will get you from zero to hero in the skip of a heartbeat.
Niner is dedicated to making extraordinary machines that go way beyond rider expectations for performance, quality and versatility – an iconic example is the Air 9 Carbon, our first carbon platform and one that has become the gold-standard of the do-it-all hardtail category.
The Air 9 RDO is a thoroughbred – a no-nonsense instrument built for speed and performance. An extension of our form-follows-function philosophy, no curve is out of place on the newest Niner. And while looks are important, true attraction begins as soon as you push on the pedals and the Air 9 RDO goes flat out
The Air 9 is our fast, light, geared-only alloy racing hardtail. Featuring the same award winning hard-tail geometry as the rest of the Air 9 family – the Air 9 is the right choice for anyone looking for a performance alloy frame.
The Niner One 9 is one of our first and best-loved models - a sexy, light-as-a-feather singlespeed for racing and epic XC rides. Featuring the same award winning hard-tail geometry as the Air 9 family – the One 9 is the right choice for anyone looking for a performance alloy singlespeed mountain bike.
At a time when carbon super bikes (including our own flagship models) dominate the stage, why would Niner shine a spotlight on the SIR 9? Perhaps it’s better to ask “just what is it about steel bikes?” Why, when we get on a steel frame, are we instantly transported back to that first bike we had as a kid? Why is steel just as relevant today as it was 50 years ago while other materials have come and gone? .
The E.M.D. 9 may be the least expensive frame in the Niner lineup but it benefits from the same design process and expectations that we require from every Niner frame. Newly redesigned to integrate custom hydroformed tubing and a tapered headtube, the E.M.D. 9 is a worthy little brother to the Air 9.
