The Niner RIP 9 RDO will re-awaken your passion for all-mountain riding. Niner took the ride quality and handling characteristics of the ground breaking RIP 9 and improved it on all levels with carbon frame, linkages, ISCG compatibility and additional travel. The unidirectional carbon frame employs bold swooping tubes that were engineered to be strong and take a ton of punishment. 125mm of fully active patented CVA suspension (designed from the ground up for 29-inch wheels) can be paired with either a 120 or 140mm fork to further fine tune the ride. The carbon links rotate on oversized Angular Contact Bearings for awesome lateral rigidity and immediate power transfer, and the integrated replaceable skid plate protects the bottom linkage so you can ride with confidence. The dropper post routing and ISCG 05 chainguide compatibility means you can build this frame to fit your riding style. The RIP 9 RDO features more tire clearance, full housing internal cable routing for a clean look and precision-machined alloy interfaces for the bottom bracket, direct-mount front derailleur and brake caliper post mounts. Handling has been improved with a tapered head tube up front and 142x12mm rear axle.
