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.
Cassette
Show Details
Gear Range: 11-32
Weight: 185 g.

Two cassettes enter, one cassette leaves as the evolutionary XX 10-Speed cassette takes center stage with its incredibly lightweight status, precise shifting abilities, and superior Thunderdome-worthy strength. X-Dome CNC-machines together eight cogs from a single block of billet steel. X-Glide technology creates four identical up-shift locations able to be picked up by any outer link for perfect timing and near instant shifting. Open design aids in mud clearance to give you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life, while the aluminum large cog can be replaced as needed.
Chain

Weight: 257 g. (114 link)

Hollowpin construction provides smooth, precise shifting and weight savings without sacrificing strength. Powerlock tool-less connecting link

Clamp-on: 1-3/8" (34.9mm)
Weight: 118 g.


If you're looking for beefy stealth, consider the XX front derailleur which shifts across the entire gearing range with near nil chain rub and a granny gear that can be cross-chained within one or two cogs without cage rub. Steel cage with parallelogram arms forged in aluminum. Thin, flexible clamp is lightweight and conforms easily to non-round tubes. The return-spring tension is boosted to force crisp direct-mount frame interfaces and in high and low-pull cable configurations. Shorter than a triple-specific front derailleur and narrower than front derailleurs made for nine-speeds in back, the XX High Clamp is great news for those who fear clearance between their rear suspension and their front derailleur. Lightning fast two-chainring derailleur is designed from scratch specifically for 2x10.

Features
  • Steel cage
  • Forged Aluminum body
  • Hardware: TORX T25 bolts
  • Cable routing: bottom pull
  • Two shifting positions

Weight: 181 g.

2x10-speed compatible Leveraging the legendary history of SRAM shifting, the XX Rear derailleur delivers incredible speed and precision. Sealed ceramic pulleys give you the highest levels of durability, while Exact Actuation technology eliminates slop and shifting variation.

Features
  • Exact Actuation Ration moves the derailleur the same distance for each shift
  • Carbon fiber pulley cage holds ceramic bearing pulleys
  • Forged magnesium rear linkage and cable guide fin
  • Titanium spring, titanium and aluminum T25 TORX hardware
Brake Levers, Shifters
Show Details
Weight: 183 g./pair

Precise contol careening down a rocky trail or through a mud bog and up into a gravel field is what the SRAM XX 2x10-Speed Trigger shifter is all about. One of the lightest and most compact shifters ever created, the XX Trigger features a fully adjustable carbon fiber lever for maximum durability with no weight penalty. XX uses Exact Actuation to deliver an identical 3mm adjustment between each gear on the cassette, replacing the typical slop found between gears with a crisp, clean, and immediate shift. This consistent, precise adjustment means smoother, faster, and better shifting with no variation in pull effort from gear to gear. Matchmaker X clamp mounts both the brake lever and the shifter, reducing weight and redundancy, while maximizing adjustability and bar space.

Features
  • Ambidextrous mounting
  • Medial/lateral and rotational adjustability around the bar
  • Carbon fiber cover, composite lower cover
  • Carbon fiber pull; composite release

Weight: 288 g. (Front or Rear)

The SRAM XX Disc Brake uses an all-new, two-piece forged aluminum caliper for greater stiffness and performance in a light-weight package. Two oversized pistons give you more stopping power with less lever pull for easy one-finger braking. 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 XX carbon fiber lever blade with forged magnesium body, titanium hardware, pad contact and reach adjustments. Front and rear sold separately. Rotors are not included.

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!

Bottom Bracket Sold Separately

Coming in at 694 grams, the Sram XX BB30 Crank delivers amazing performance and durability with no penalties in weight. The oversized chainrings are CNC machined 7075 aluminum blanks-2mm thicker than the competition. Unparalleled stiffness is delivered by an increased Bolt Circle Diameter (BCD) and a two-piece insert-molded carbon composite construction. The crank geometry provides a narrow 156mm Q factor, an efficient chainline, and beveled crank arms to maximize clearance.

Patented X-Glide chainring technology delivers accurate, lightning fast front shifts. The development concept for X-Glide was simple: create a geometry that allows each chainring to be divided into equal segments, much like a pie. Then, perfect the up-and downshift timing for one segment, and repeat that for each of them. With X-Glide, all four upshift locations are identical and can be picked up by any outer link. The result? Up and down shift locations have perfect timing, for an almost instant shift-even under load!

BB Not Included.

PressFit 30 features an integrated seal, pre-assembled into the cups, to further prolong bearing life. The key difference with PressFit 30 is how the bearings are fitted into the frame. Bearings are housed in nylon cups which will be pressed into the frames bottom bracket shell. This bottom bracket is designed for 30mm spindle cranksets. Frames will need a 46mm inner-diameter bottom bracket shell to accommodate this system. PressFit 30 for road will require a 68mm wide shell while PressFit 30 for MTB will require a 73mm wide shell.
