Description

1x11 drivetrain, carbon frame, and a very lightweight pile of XC goodness.

It's pretty obvious that the mid-size wheel is gaining serious speed among all-mountain and gravity-favored disciplines. But, when it comes to cross-country, bikes like this 2013 Niner Air 9 Carbon/SRAM X01 Complete Mountain Bike prove the 29er is still supreme.

Dressed here in a Sram X01 drivetrain, 100mm-travel Fox Float CDT, and Stan's No Tubes wheels, this Air 9 Carbon is ready to scale mountains and negotiate desert single-track with speed and efficiency. And, while these components are contributing factors, the biggest source of those traits lies in Niner's high modulus carbon fiber structure with optimized weaves, lay ups, and tube shapes.

Its fluid form is no accident, and is purpose-designed to dampen chatter and guide impact forces to stronger parts of the frame. Chain torque goes directly to the rear wheel via a reinforced bottom bracket shell and sturdy chainstays, yet trail vibrations are quelled by swooping seatstays. While this Air 9 is spec'd with a CYA Bottom Bracket, which is compatible with Niner’s exclusive Bio-Centric EBB so you can easily switch from gears to single speed.

In this guise, the CYA interface houses a SRAM PF30 BB with a 32T X01 BB30 crankset spinning around it. Connecting the crank to Sram's 11-42T X01 X-Glide Cassette is an XX1 HollowPin chain. The cassette's mounted to Stan's NoTubes ZTR Arch EX wheels with Geax Saguaro tires providing the perfect mix of low-rolling resistance, low-weight, and good traction. X01 is also employed for shifting and derailleur duty. That covers the go. Controlling the whoa is Shimano's excellent XT Hydraulic Disc Brakes.

The 2013 Niner Air 9 Carbon/SRAM X01 Complete Mountain Bike comes in sizes Small through X-Large and four colors; White, Tangerine, Moondust, and Black.

Great bike for a great price

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love the gears and the handling of this bike. It is really fast and comfortable to ride on. I changed the tires to Rocket Ron and got a tubeless setup. That is amazing and very soft and forgiving to ride on. I am 6 foot 2 inches with and inseem of 35.2 inches and have been spilt between the L and the XL. I ended up going with the XL - and it feels right. Although I guess I would have been comfortable on a L too. I am just in between the two sizes. I you are buying this bike you could consider leveling up the stem, handlebar and seatpost. A couple of hundred dollars there could save you a little weight - but then again you will properly never notice any difference. And I would like to be able to control the fork from the handlebar too. This upgrade could also be considered. But again for this price - you wont find a better offer. Attached is a picture of me riding the bike in Arastredaro in The Bay Area near San Francisco where I like at the moment. Been pushing it around Skeegs too (a lot of steep descents and climbs) which the bike handled really well too. Claus

I am 175 lbs, I do crossfit every day and I am in extremely good shape. I have a 31 inch inseam, but a really long torso. I am 5'10". Medium or a large? Looking to pull the trigger on this boy.

Responded on

I would put you in a medium in this bike-unfortunately we are sold out of the 2013 frames but could certainly do a 2014 frameset at a great value.

Fast Hardtail

  • Gender: Male

This bike is an amazing value.I have had the opportunity of riding this bike several times over the summer and really enjoyed ripping it around the trails of Utah. Its very well rounded. Most definitely a lethal race machine as it is stiff and lightweight (build weight as shown is under 23 lbs) but shockingly its comfortable,as well. This is largely due to the over sized tubes,big tires and clever carbon layup by Niner. The icing on the cake for this build is the sweet X01 drive train (1x11) The X01 is extremely efficient on the trail. Say goodbye to chain throwing with this set up! It shaves weight too . If you have never experienced 1x11 on the trail its time to make the switch. I highly recommend adding this stud to your stable.

***This is a custom build so components can be switched out .If we are out of your size we can do this same build on a 2014 Air 9 Carbon frame still at a great price.

Air 9 carbon vs Air 9 RDO

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hi there, I have a 2012 Ninner air carb as a 1x10. I am looking for building a Single Speed. Would the Air9RDO frame be a better choice to put the 1x10 drive on ( it seems it has some more 'suspension feel' as I heard) and change my Air 9 Carb into a SS?

Responded on

yes...i would say the air 9 carbon would be the better bike for ss set up
