You do not only want to do the track, but you also want to reach the finish quickly? The RLT 9 RDO is a gravel bike that really gets you through the miles. The basis of the new carbon frame is the proven concept of the RLT 9 product line (Road Less Traveled). More space for larger tires and numerous ways to attach luggage or accessories are just some of the innovations. Over 26 attachment points leave enough room to equip your bike with as many bags, bottles and racks as you need. Tailored panniers for any frame size are available otional. The RLT 9 RDO is manufactured with the special Niner Carbon process (RDO) and keeps its promise. So the lightweight frame with improved stiffness values offers a higher degree of comfort, performance and driving dynamics playfulness. The new fork of the Gravel bike is made of racing-optimized carbon fiber, which is also produced in the RDO process. Their development was focused on aesthetics and functionality. Thus, the brake line is guided inside by a completely sheathed guide tube. Multiple rack, fender and pannier holders provide optimal load distribution. In addition, the fork has an internal cable routing for a hub dynamo and the ability to attach a front lamp. So long tours can be continued even in the dark and peripheral devices such as mobile phones or bicycle notifications can be loaded while driving. The frame set also has rigid stub 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 mounted, offering the driver a number of options and the possibility of adapting the RLT to different driving conditions. Typically Niner, the PressFit 30 standard in the bottom bracket shell offers full compatibility for single, 1 and 2-speed drives. The internal cable routing (also DI2 compatible) protects the switching system under the most adverse conditions and completes the overall package not only visually harmonious.
