NINER Frame 28 "RLT 9 Steel Gravel Bike Forge Gray | Baja Blue 2020
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. Utilizing high-quality and proven 853 Reynolds alloy steel tubes, it combines modern frame design with stability, durability and comfort. Taking advantage of their knowledge and experience in frame construction, Niner's 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 basis of the new steel frame is the proven concept of the RLT 9 product line. 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 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. 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 NINER RLT 9 Steel is designed for 650B and 700C wheels and guarantees you the adventure even off the beaten track.
