Take less traveled roads.

Whether you're ripping buttery singletrack, packing up for a multi-day gravel adventure, or toeing the line at a cyclocross race, the 2016 Niner RLT 9 4-Star Ultegra Hydro Complete Bike boasts the versatility to cover it all. Featuring what Niner dubs "fire road geometry," the RLT is a little bit slacker, longer, and has a lower bottom bracket than its cyclocross race-bred sibling, the BSB 9.

That makes it both agile enough for short, technical bursts and comfortable enough for days of adventuring over less-travels pathways. The 3-star build comes kitted out with Shimano's much loved Ultegra drivetrain, powerful hydraulic brakes, and a versatile Stan's NoTubes wheelset that's built to handle a wide range of tubeless tire pressures.

The RLT 9's tube set borrows heavily from the one used on Niner’s aluminum AIR 9 frame. The tapered head tube accommodates a matching tapered fork, which is unsurprisingly similar to Niner’s award-winning RDO mountain fork. The dropouts have integrated rack and fender mounts, which only add to your setup options, and the burly replaceable hanger means that even if a catastrophic derailleur-related incident ends your ride, your RLT will live to roll another day.

The hydro-formed tubes are designed to neutralize chatter, helping the RLT to maintain a smooth ride. Additionally, it makes the frame much stronger than it would be had round tubes been employed. And to enhance the smooth ride, the RLT has a 27.2mm diameter seatpost. The combination of the smaller diameter and Niner's vibration dampening carbong post means that you won’t be getting beat up as much as you’d expect, especially on washboard roads.

Confident, comfortable, fun.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a awesome bike! First off, the bike came assembled and tuned perfectly. Great job to whoever put my bike together! The combination of the through axles, hydro disc brakes and tubeless tires is very confidence inspiring. The geometry is very comfortable for long rides, and the ride quality is great for a aluminum frame. Easily as comfortable as my mid level carbon road bike. If your looking for a very fun to ride bike that is durable and can go anywhere and do almost anything, the Niner RLT 9 is a great choice. The bikes only limit is you.
