The Niner RKT 9 RDO is intended to do one thing very well, go fast! All stops were pulled to create the most efficient full suspension race-worthy short travel XC ride. The frame is constructed using Niner's RDO Carbon Compaction technology, which utilizes highly resilient fibers to provide front and rear triangles that are incredibly lightweight and durable. Punish it on daylong epics and be amazed, it will keep coming back for more despite its featherweight feel.
Niner's patented CVA linkage design allows for pedal forces to operate independently of rear wheel travel, providing every ounce of your hard-earned energy directly to the pedals, and after extensive testing, Niner engineers optimized the linkage and bearings to produce the lightest, stiffest version of CVA to date. Frame sizes medium and larger have water bottle mounts on both the underside of the down tube and within the front triangle allowing for ample hydration during longer marathon-style endurance events. When the racing gets rough, the frame finds protection behind titanium frame plates which guard against the potential of a dropped chain, while clear protective decals add impact resistance to common rock-strike and high-abuse areas. The RKT's 439mm chainstay length provides the perfect balance of acceleration, climbing traction and the ability to carve up the racetrack. The RKT is the first Niner to feature Boost 148mm x 12mm rear spacing and has clearance for up to 2.4" tires. This feature allows for a wider spoke interface and an overall stiffer wheel and swing-arm combo, enabling you to confidently maintain line selection in the roughest conditions. 90mm of patented CVA suspension can be paired with a 100-120mm fork for XC racing. Internally routed for dropper seatposts. Frame includes seat collar, headset, and maxle. 5 year warranty.
