NINER Mountain Bike Frame 29 "Air 9 RDO Carbon Gloss Blue 2019
The latest evolution of the AIR 9 RDO hardtail frame for the 2019 season!
The competition is your oxygen? The Air 9 RDO is the answer! Niner's flagship in the hardtail range reaches new, ultra-refined heights! The new Air 9 RDO is a product of nearly a decade of refinement and testing - courtesy of Niners racing and engineering programs. The biker expects the highest level of carbon processing, technical details and clever geometry.
RDO Carbon Compact System The Air 9 RDO carbon frame design benefits from years of engineering, process optimization and testing - both through Niner's in-house test lab and independent resources. It all started with the first race bikes in 2005. Over the years there have been significant changes that led to the launch of the Air 9 RDO in 2012. RDO frames use the latest production processes in carbon processing. The layer structure is optimized at each point, the individual carbon fiber layers are densified consistently and are virtually wrinkle-free. These processes lead to precise Wandstarken, optimum resin content in the final product and thus to a stiff as light carbon frame. Strength and durability are at the highest level. The frame craves after hard use in the field.
design The shapes of the Air 9 RDO frame draw on Niner's long history in carbon design and processing. In particular, Niner stands for light and stiff hardtails that are not afraid of tough off-road use. Upper and lower tube follow a design which increases the torsional rigidity to a maximum. The rear triangle is designed in the tube shapes so that it resembles the principle of a leaf spring. Stiff at the start, but generating comfort while sitting in the saddle. In the current model works a thru axle with 12 x 148 mm BOOST installation dimensions.
Performance geometry Niner's race geometry on Hardtail is a development of collections of various successes in national and international cycling. Geometry has been subject to constant refinement and development over the years. Even suspension forks with up to 120 mm of travel are mobile in the current model without negatively influencing the geometry. Niner has high goals. The symbiosis of a stiff, precise frame, combined with a perfect geometry is the claim. Incidentally, the frame is also lightweight and meets all safety standards. The frame is offered from size XS to XL. Smaller sizes are adjusted in the layer structure. Thus, additional weight can be saved without sacrificing rigidity or safety.
C5 Warranty & Safety Program Computer modeling, physical prototype testing (both in house and independent testing facilities) and hours of driving experience among highly skilled and abusive test drivers make Niner confident that the AIR 9 RDO will exceed expectations in cover of weight and safety categories. Therefore, Niner gives a 5-year warranty on any processing or material defects in the frame.
Press Fit 30 bottom bracket The AIR 9 RDO uses the Press Fit 30 standard. This allows the use of stiffer and lighter BB30 cranks with 30 mm axle diameter.
NINER RDO fork (optional) The AIR 9 RDO frame can be used with any Tapered suspension fork of 100-120 mm. For ultimate lightweight racers, there's Niner's RDO carbon rigid fork. The stiff and very light carbon fork converts every revolution of the crank into pure propulsion. A thru-axle with a diameter of 15 mm additionally provides precision when braking and in bends.
details Most of the cables are laid internally. In addition, the frame is prepared to be able to lay Shimano Di2 cables visually appealing.
