2017 Niner RLT 9 RDO
It is an innate human quality to lust for adventure. The time is now. The new Niner RLT 9 RDO begs to be ridden all day on the paths less travelled.
The bike can offer a sense of freedom, opportunity, and slightly push your comfort zones. There is a certain unexplainable bliss you encounter on a long ride that you can only explain to those who have experienced the same thing. Niner is constantly trying to refine their bike offerings, and the new Niner RLT 9 RDO frame is nothing short of a big step forward for the Colorado based brand.
The new Niner RLT 9 RDO will accept up to a 700x40c or 650x40c tire, giving you plenty of options to dial in your tire selection based on the type of terrain you will be riding. Going with flat mount disc brake calipers offers easier adjustment and a cleaner aesthetic, complementing the already smooth lines of the frame. 12x142 rear and 15x100 front thru axles do their job in securing your wheels and keeping your disc rotor aligned so you can trust your equipment and focus on the task at hand.
No matter the size, every frame has 2 water bottle cage mounts. If you’re looking to do multi-day trips the RLT 9 RDO has fender and rack mounts, giving you an array of peripheral bag options to carry your load.
Niner took a page out of the Air 9 RDO handbook when it comes to ride quality and frame balance. A massive downtube and chainstay ensure your power is transferred efficiently, while the super thin seat stays deliver the right amount of vertical compliance for all day comfort. Refined from countless hours and pro feedback, the RLT 9 RDO has a tried and true geometry that will feel home on multi day trips, or all day spirited and competitive riding. Get ready to redefine what you think a gravel bike can do.
