RLT 9 4-Star GRX 1x Gravel Bike
Why We Like The Niner RLT 9 4-Star GRX 1x Gravel Bike
From our favorite paved trail to cutting across a gravel road, the Niner RLT 9 4-Star GRX 1x Gravel Bike allows us to explore the outdoors on a budget-friendly, versatile gravel machine. Its aluminum frame and welded hydroformed aluminum tubing are praised for their versatility and affordability, as well as their stiffness and long-lasting durability. To help absorb shocks on the rough roads we come across, Niner uses their RDO carbon fiber for the fork. During our longest rides, comfort won't be an issue thanks to the long chainstays, low bottom bracket height, and slacker headtube angles.
Since this is a gravel grinder, it only makes sense that Niner incorporated the gravel-specific GRX800 1x drivetrain to push us past our limits. It features a 42T chainring and an 11-42T cassette, providing us with more gearing than we could ever think we need for a long gravel adventure. The shifting is smooth and precise, while the Shimano GRX800 disc brakes ensure crisp stops at the moment we need them.
