The E.M.D. 9 is a trusty, loyal steed with Niner's exemplary attention to ride quality that will make you just as loyal. Like all Niner frames, the hydroformed aluminum E.M.D. 9 is specifically tuned to take advantage of 29er geometry so you get a fun, whippy ride that jumps forward when you stomp on the pedals. The 100mm-travel Fox Evolution fork soaks up rock and roots as you blast through technical sections. American Classic wheels with front and rear through-axles complement the light, zippy feel with quick, responsive tracking, and Schwalbe Racing Ralph tires stick it in the corners so you can rail as hard as you want. Shimano's XT drivetrain gives you solid, precise shifting, and when it's time to slow down, Shimano XT discs provide smooth, effortless control, whether you're scrubbing speed or need to stop quickly. And, with a WTB Volt Race saddle and a host of Niner carbon and aluminum components, you'll make excuses to grind up the local leg-busting climb and swoop down the gnarliest descents.
