The Niner AIR 9 RDO carbon frame has slimmed down to racing weight and is now lean, mean, and Niner green. RDO stands for Race Day Optimized, meaning that this frame was made as light as possible The new rig is a half-pound lighter than its predecessor, thanks to an optimized carbon layup process and reduced diameters of the down and top tube. Additionally, Niner's trademark CYA bottom bracket was swapped out for a smaller, all-carbon Press Fit 30 BB; even the headset races in the headtube are molded carbon. The rear brake mount is tucked inside the curving stays to distribute twisting forces evenly, permitting smaller caliper mounts and decreased wall thicknesses. This frame was made to come alive, with quick acceleration and telepathic handling. 5 year warranty. Headset is included.

Specifically designed for wider rims, Stan's No Tubes 25mm rim tape is your wingman on the trail, designed to keep your ZTR rims airtight. Can be used as a lightweight rim tape on any rim. 10 yards x 25mm (1 roll tapes 5 rims - 7 grams per application).

Specifically designed for wider rims, Stan's No Tubes 21mm rim tape can be used as a lightweight rim tape on narrower rims. 10 yards x 21mm (1 roll tapes 5 rims - 5 grams per application).
Rim Valves
Show Details
The Stan's No Tubes custom 44mm Presta valve stem converts most 700c rims to tubeless when used with NoTubes 21mm yellow tape and sealant (sold separately). This valve will seal most existing rims that have an inner valve stem hole of 6-8mm. Removable valve core allows easier application of tire sealant. (Rims with no inner spoke holes do not require the yellow spoke tape.)

Save 10% on Tubeless Tire Sealant
Show Details
The wheels that you have purchased require no rim strip and include a valve stem for tubeless use. Additionally, the tires that you have selected may be used without tubes. This tubeless technology requires sealant to maintain air pressure.

Sealant helps stop many leaks and flats incurred during normal riding conditions. The solution can be used year round, even in sub freezing temperatures.

Gear Range: 10X42
Weight: 275 g.

Ranging from 10- to 42-teeth, the 11-speed SRAM XG-1195 XO1 X-Glide Cassette delivers an incredibly wide gear range while maintaining even, optimized steps. The single-unit cassette combines with the XD driver body for a superior connection to the wheel. (Wheels equipped for XD driver body available from SRAM, Mavic and DT Swiss.)

Chains
Show Details
The SRAM CN-PCXX1 Chain 11-speed represents the latest breakthrough in a long line of precise, light-weight chains from SRAM. It's signed to deliver the greatest strength and reliability to a drivetrain that doesn't have to make compromises for front shifts. The XX1 chain has 4 times the elongation (wear) resistance to our 10-speed chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength, and ultimate strength are equivalent to our current chains. The XX1 chain lasts longer and is just as strong. (118 link)
Brake Levers, Shifters
Show Details
Weight: 91 g.

The XO1 trigger shifter employs much of the same technology seen in SRAM's XX1 shifter. Aluminum is used on the lever and cover for a lightweight and durable construction that'll last longer than your frame. Getting inside the shifter, you can expect a precise and dependable actuation mile-after-mile, through any terrain. And though the wide range of gears may seem like they'll cause undue stress on the shifting system, the single shifter employees the new X-Actuation to keep shifting precise and dependable across the cassette. Like the Exact-Actuation ratio that SRAM developed for its 10-speed road group, SRAM has deviated from its bread-and-butter, 1:1 pull ratio. Now, XO1 uses SRAM's new cable-pull ratio system to deliver a more uniform and accurate derailleur movement, with less applied force required from the user. What sets SRAM apart is its dedication to the user and their demands. Along these lines, the multi-adjustable trigger shifter lets you dial in your shifter to your exact reach specifications. This system is incredibly helpful for cyclists with smaller or larger hands. The shifter also comes with a MatchMaker X compatible clamp. This creates easier accessibility and a clean aesthetic by placing your XLoc suspension controls securely next to your shifter. Our favorite result from the use of a single shifter, is that your bars now have more options for where you can mount your remote seatpost control.
Derailleurs, Rear
Show Details
For 1x11 MTB gearing configurations
Weight: 252 g.
11-spd compatible

With its "horizontal parallelogram" design and pulley offset, the SRAM XO1 11-speed Rear Derailleur keeps the chain gap constant across all 11 gears, providing fast, precise shifts. By limiting all movement to the horizontal axis, X-HORIZON technology is faster, reducing shift force and eliminating ghost shifting. ROLLER BEARING clutch technology reduces bounce and chain slap. Type 2 clutch and Cage Lock technologies makes wheel removal and installation easier than ever before. Just as on the chainring, X-Sync tooth design of pulley wheels active holds onto chain. Paired with the XO1 shifter, the X-HORIZON RD forms the backbone of X-Actuation technology for unbelievably smooth shifting action. Compatible only with XX1 or XO1 Grip Shift or Trigger Shifter.
Brakes
Show Details
Rotor size: 160mm
Weight: 340 g. (Front or Rear)

The new XO Trail brake was designed for cross country to downhill and everything in between. With a powerful 4-piston dual-diameter caliper and innovative lever pivot bearing, it packs more power than any other brake in its class. An updated TaperBore design incorporates a new air-trap feature, which prevents potentially trapped air from entering the system, resulting in ridiculously smooth control you can count on. Super light carbon fiber lever blade with forged aluminum body, new HS1 rotors, aluminum hardware, pad contact and reach adjustments. Front and rear sold separately.

Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
