2012 Niner AIR 9 RDO



The Air 9 RDO is the quintessential lightweight racing hardtail that has a remarkably compliant ride while maintaining stiffness when you need it most.

This carbon hardtail is specifically intended as a geared racing bike. With this in mind Niner referred to the purposeful lines of the Air 9 Carbon but reduced diameters and trimmed profiles throughout. Even the headset races in the head tube are molded carbon - Niner shaved grams wherever they found them. The net result? A 1125g Niner frame that is going to knock your socks off. That’s over a half-pound less than its brother the Air 9 Carbon! If getting there as quickly as possible is your game, you will want to throw a leg over the Air 9 RDO.

  • Sizes: large and extra large
