You can tell your friends that Niner's RIP 9 RDO is light and fast, but the only thing they'll hear is the "Whoosh!" of you blowing past them. This lightweight trail ripper features Niner's RDO carbon for a balanced, predictable, and nimble ride that's as light as it is smooth. 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 fork. Speaking of going fast, the RIP 9 RDO is outfitted with a wide-ranging SRAM XX1 drivetrain to give you crisp, clean shifts every time. For even more trail-smoothing zip, it all rolls on Stan's ZTR Flow EX wheels that make short work of trail chatter. Slowing it all down is effortless with SRAM's XO Trail brakes. Schwalbe tires provide a dirt-chomping bite when you're shredding a tight corner, while a whole host of Niner carbon components round out the stellar build of your quiver-replacing RIP 9 RDO.
