No need to free up space in the garage—Niner's RIP 9 RDO is so much fun you may never get off! This lightweight trail ripper features Niner's RDO carbon for a balanced, predictable, and nimble ride that's as light as it is smooth. That's because the carbon tubing all comes together with Niner's CVA suspension system, which takes advantage of 29er geometry to ensure your pedaling force goes straight to forward momentum, even when the suspension is active. That means you go faster on the climbs, can push harder on the twisty stuff, and blast down the bumpy descents with 130mm of thud-swallowing travel from the RockShox Revelation RCT3 fork. Speaking of going fast, the RIP 9 RDO is outfitted with a Shimano XT drivetrain that gives you crisp, clean shifts every time. For even more trail-smoothing zip, it all rolls on Stan's NoTubes ZTR Flow EX wheels, making short work of trail chatter the way a 29er should. Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires provide a dirt-chomping bite when you're railing a tight corner, while a whole host of Niner carbon and aluminum components round out the stellar build of your quiver-replacing RIP 9 RDO.
