Description

It's Your Ride.

As more and more cyclists venture off the beaten path, it's only natural that bike companies would look to inject their technological know-how and understanding of materials to help riders ride longer, faster, and in more comfort. Niner's latest addition to its Road Less Traveled lineup, the RLT 9 3-Star Rival Complete Bike, lets you enjoy the features that challenge the best road bikes with its lightweight aluminum construction, bask in the well thought out geometry 5 hours into an epic gravel grinder, and appreciate the comfort of the frame and large volume tires when blindly following your buddy down a braking bump riddled gravel descent at speed.

Since this bike is designed for gravel and comfort, the geometry is a bit slacker, stretched a little longer, and the bottom bracket sees more drop than Niner's BSB 9 which is more at home pinned between the tape and up and over the barriers. The hydroformed aluminum alloy frame is light, efficient, and sharp looking. A custom 15mm thru-axle, tuned for gravel, all-carbon Niner fork has mid-rack mounts and shares the same DNA and safety standards with its legendary mountain bike version. Rear rack mounts further add to the versatility of the frame that is equally at home bikepacking, commuting, and racing gravel.

The PF 30 BB shell is geared or singlespeed compatible with Niner's BioCentric 30 for the most masochistic among us. Full-length cable housing keeps grit out of the shifting system in nasty conditions. Housing enters the down tube behind the head tube and exits below the BB for easy set up and low maintenance. If you choose to go Di2 down the road, the frame can accommodate that as well. Proprietary forged dropouts are designed to reduce weight and integrate the low-profile post brake mount with the chainstay with clearance up to 160mm rotors.

Designed with a tube set similar to the proven AIR 9 hardtail, the RLT 9’s tube shapes are hydroformed to meet Niner’s desired ride quality. Comfort and low weight can be found on this bike and it comes in at a price that makes n+1 a reality. The 27.2mm RDO carbon flexes twice as much as conventional seatposts to reduces road vibration on gravel and chip seal roads and reduces overall body fatigue on all-day rides. Clearance for up to a 1.75” tire allows you to hit up some singletrack if you chose. The SRAM Rival Hydo group has plenty of gearing for all day riding and plenty of stopping power for all-weather performance.

  • Thru-axles increase stiffness and improve braking
