Why We Like The Niner RLT 9 2-Star Apex 1 Gravel Bike

The RLT 9 2-Star Apex 1 Gravel Bike from Niner is a rugged and versatile gravel machine that provides us with an adventure-worthy bike without draining the bank. The unmatched functionality of this bike gives us pure, unfettered freedom and access to any road, any trail, any day. Sure, we could stick to pavement, but we know we're going to venture off the beaten path with the RLT 9's ample tire clearance, capable geometry, and Niner's affordable and versatile 6061 aluminum frame construction. The tubing is shaped to optimize strength, durability, and stiffness while maintaining a low overall weight, while the RDO carbon fiber fork dampens harsh vibrations and improves compliance over rough surfaces.


This RLT 9 2-Star gravel grinder features the Apex 1 groupset, a lightweight, versatile option for riders who are looking for more of an entry-level ride. The 40T chainring and 11-42T cassette provide us with the gearing needed to conquer steep hills and the fast descents that follow, and when the time comes to hit the brakes, we put our full trust into the SRAM APEX 1 HRD disc brakes. Multiple rack, fender, and cargo mounts make our bikepacking trips a breeze, and internal cable routing ensures a sleek, clean look.
