WesBwrote a review of Niner Jet 9 RDO 27.5+ 5-Star X01 Eagle Complete Bike - 2016 on November 15, 2016
I just got back from Moab and spent a extremely fun afternoon testing out the new Jet 9 RDO and I must say I am most impressed! I was always a fan of the previous gen as it was the fastest/stiffest XC race bike out there. A great bike in its own right but could beat the heck out of you over 2+ hr rides. I found the new model to have very similar qualities as far as stiffness and agility but the longer suspension really helped to soften the ride quality yet still be a very stiff bike for power transfers. I spent about 3.5 hrs on it over some moderately technical trails and found the bike to still have very impressive agility. The bike was very efficient at climbing even though its a lot slacker than the previous version. The handling of the bike downhill was impressive as well. A very fast descender that maintains control throughout the plunge. Over all this bike was very fun to ride and Niner did a great job of keeping that race ready 29r reputation in check while creating a sweet epic trail bike for the more technical trails.
Im 5'10 with a 33" inseam and the large fit great
