The RLT9 Steel offers the best synthesis of form and function in a single frame, so every ride opens up a new adventure for you. Using high quality and proven 853 Reynolds alloy steel tubes, the modern frame design combines stability, durability and comfort. Taking advantage of their knowledge and experience in frame construction, Niner specialists went one step further by designing the perfect bike for fast and comfortable rolling on gravel roads and paved roads. The RLT 9 Steel (Road Less Traveled) is, as the name implies, the ideal bike for traveling on the less paved roads, where every direction you want can be taken. The slightly longer chain stays, 12x142 mm thru axle, a lower bottom bracket and a flat steering head angle are ideal for a stable ride even on bumpy roads. The small 27.2 mm seat post diameter reduces road vibrations on gravel or rough roads and reduces body fatigue on all-day rides. In addition to a rack option, up to three bottle cages can be mounted on the frame, which enhances the long-distance suitability. The fork also has additional mount n for bottle holder or luggage rack. Typically Niner, the PressFit 30 standard in the bottom bracket shell offers full compatibility for single, dual and triple actuators. The full carbon fork, with borrowings from the MTB version, is extremely stiff but very comfortable. 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.
The NINER RLT 9 Steel is designed for 29 "and 700C wheels and guarantees you the adventure even on well-trodden paths.
