The Niner RIP 9 Carbon is the answer to challenging trails. Already the first generation of the RIP in aluminum was cheered by the five largest trade journals in the USA and received awards like "Best 29er of the Year". With RIP 9 Carbon, the main frame corresponds to that of the RIP 9 RDO. However, the rear section is made of aluminum, which increases the all-round and trailability on the hard terrain. The in-house CVA suspension technology allows a very efficient suspension, which is active and gentle in any situation over a spring travel of 125 mm. The perfect balance is achieved together with a suspension fork from 120 to 140 mm. The award-winning framework is greatly benefiting from the new design and manufacturing technologies that have been taken into account in all frame components from the control tube to the failing. With every detail, Niner asked herself if they could make it even better. Integrated pulling-out for shifting and retractable seatpost, ISCG 05 mountings are part of the appearance, such as the frame protector and the skid plate made of titanium plates under the bottom bracket. It is recommended to use 2-speed crank kits such as SRAM 26/29 or smaller, Shimano XT 28/40 or smaller, Shimano XTR 26/38. XTR with 40 teeth is not recommended as contact with the frame is possible.
