Niner's AIR 9 takes advantage of hydroformed tubing to create a nuanced and responsive ride meant for race courses and daily trail shred with friends. More importantly, it's light, fast, and fun! The aluminum frame is mated to a RockShox Recon Gold fork with 100mm of thud-swallowing travel, and thanks to the tapered steerer, swooping through the trees and bombing down the steeps comes with an extra dose of precision and strength. When you stomp on the pedals, you get plenty of go thanks to a Shimano Deore/SLX drivetrain, and when you cross the finish line, you can slow it all down with Shimano Deore disc brakes. And with American Classic wheels rolling easily over rocks and roots—thanks to 29 inches of cyclical awesomeness—your trail rides will feel like you're floating on air.
