NINER frame 28 "RLT 9 RDO Gravel Bike Baja Blue / Sand 2020
You not only want to make a route, but also want to get to your destination quickly? The RLT 9 RDO is a gravel bike with which the miles literally pass you.
The basis of the new carbon frame is the proven concept of the RLT 9 product range (Road Less Traveled). More space for larger tires and numerous options for attaching luggage or accessories are just a few of the innovations. Over 26 attachment points leave enough leeway to equip your bike with as many bags, bottles and luggage racks as you need. Tailor-made panniers for every frame size are optionally available.
The RLT 9 RDO is manufactured with the special Niner Carbon process (RDO) and does what it promises. The lightweight frame with improved stiffness values offers a higher level of comfort, performance and dynamic driving playfulness.
The new fork of the Gravel bike consists of racing-optimized carbon fiber, which is also manufactured using the RDO process. When developing it, particular attention was paid to aesthetics and functionality. The inside of the brake line is routed through a completely covered guide tube. Several luggage rack, mudguard and pannier holders enable optimal load distribution. In addition, the fork has an internal cable routing for a hub dynamo and the option to attach a front lamp. This way, long tours can be continued even in the dark and peripheral devices such as cell phones or bicycle navigation systems can be charged while driving.
The frameset also has rigid thru axles (front + rear) and disc brake mounts with the new Flatmount standard. Thanks to the generously dimensioned frame, tires up to 50 mm wide can be fitted, which gives the driver a number of options and the option of adapting the HVAC to different driving conditions.
Typically Niner, the PressFit 30 standard for the bottom bracket shell offers full compatibility for single, single and double drives. The internal cable routing (also DI2 compatible) protects the switching system under the most adverse conditions and not only rounds off the overall package harmoniously.
NINER RLT 9 RDO is designed for 650B and 700C bikes and guarantees you the adventure even off the beaten track.
