Specification: NINER RIP 9 RDO 29 4-STAR BIKE 2021
The trail taming RIP 9 RDO For more than a decade, the RIP 9 RDO trail bike has ruled our off-road lineup. For 2019, this flagship bike evolves again. Our do-it-all trail bike hits the sweet spot with 140mm of consistent, controlled CVA suspension, progressive and adjustable geometry, and increased frame stiffness.
The evolution is the Niner RIP 9 RDO 29 4-Star Bike. It starts with an RDO carbon frame that has 140mm of travel on the rear and 150mm of travel on the front. The CVA suspension is built to be supple yet stable, controlling unwanted suspension movement with calibrated anti-squat, yet remaining active while climbing and descending.
The seat tube angle is a conservative 75.2 degrees in the low mode, which matches the bike’s intended purpose nicely. The RIP 9 RDO will feel best while climbing standard grades from about 6 to 10 percent, and the 434-millimeter chainstay length helps to keep the front wheel on the ground for most climbs.
