The new Niner Air 9 Carbon benefits from the development of the Air 9 RDO. The frame was more designed for ease and speed, what excellent existing with the razor-sharp handling and comfortable driving characteristics could be combined.
The only difference to the big brother, a somewhat higher weight but for a much more attractive price.
The orientation of the high modulus carbon in layers and layup made to make optimum use of the advantages of Carbon. Frame development began with reams of data, which have already been collected by FEM calculations, models and years of experience in the construction of carbon frames. This allowed the shape of the tubes to be further refined and optimized.
Key areas include the extremely stiff down tube, head tube and bottom bracket. Afterwards Niner took care of the unique design of the frame, with no losses were allowed in functionality.
The PressFit 30 bottom bracket shell of the Air 9 Carbon is compact and lightweight. By choosing this standard eliminates the need for an aluminum insert, which leads to a significant reduction in weight and permits many combinations crank. The tax rate is fully integrated as the lighter brother, the RDO and also saves the Alumiumsitz. A 12x142 mm thru-axle guarantees even more rigidity and directional stability on the trail.
The internal cable routing provides a clean look and protects the gear cables so against external influences.
