2017 Niner RLT 9 Steel

Every adventurer needs an adventure bike. Niner built the RLT 9 Steel to be your ultimate companion for when you’re facing the unknown- whether that’s down an unfamiliar road or miles away from civilization. This is the bike to have by your side.

Steel stands the test of time as one of the most versatile materials in production. It is strong, yet light, sturdy. It is the iconic bike material that all other materials are compared to. Ultimately it is a material you can trust. It is a material that isn’t going anywhere and it was the choice material for the Niner RLT 9 Steel.

The RLT 9 Steel is built with Reynolds 853 steel tubing. It silences the noise from the road and, in the word’s of Niner’s designers, “there is no dead feeling or jarring bumps just a supple comfortable ride that shifts your focus from tracking the miles to remembering the moments.” This is a bike built for memories, and it can be your everyday rider as well.

On this frame you can run a single speed, a double, or even triple chain ring. It’s your adventure. Pick accordingly. The RTL 9 Steel includes mounts for three water bottles, as well as braze-ons to attach front and rear racks, making this an ideal bike for longer or overnight bike camping trips.

It should come as no surprise that the geometry of the RLT 9 Steel is primed for adventure. Most adventures don’t wrap up early, and the RLT 9 is built to accommodate the fact that you will be spending long hours in the saddle. The RLT 9 features a longer chain stay lower bottom bracket and slacker head tube angle. This means you stay comfortable no matter how long your adventure lasts.
