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. SM-XL.
