Niner RLT 9 3-Star Rival 22 Hydro

Niner's RLT 9: Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel grinder? YES. Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, it all depends on where you want to go. The RLT 9 doesn't define you by where you have been, but encourages you to become someone new, to take the left turn and to leave the constraints of the yellow lines behind.

Designed with a tube set similar to the proven AIR 9, the RLT 9’s tubes are shaped to meet Niner’s ride quality standards. Even riders who prefer the company of saguaros to the cacophony of crowds appreciate comfort and low weight. Proprietary forged dropouts are designed to reduce weight and integrate the low-profile post brake mount with the chainstay. It has a slightly longer chainstay, lower bottom bracket, and slacker head tube angle, all of which are ideal for a stable ride on the rockiest of roads while still being capable of winning a proper cross race or two for the privateer.

A 27.2mm seatpost reduces road vibrations on gravel or chip seal roads and reduces body fatigue on all-day rides. Internal cable routing keeps the bike's lines clean and reduces snags. Cables enter the down tube behind the head tube and exit below the bottom bracket for easy set up and low maintenance, and Niner has integrated Di2 compatibility with a seatpost wiring port.

The gravel-tuned and custom-painted Niner Carbon Fork keeps the front end stable, predictable, and reliable, even when loaded with gear. All Niner forks and frames are tested to mountain bike safety standards, so you can explore anywhere you can imagine, with absolute confidence in your bike's ability to stay the course as long as you can.

The RLT 9 3-Star marries the above-mentioned radness with a SRAM Rival 22 parts group for a seamless connection between you and your controls. The Rival hydraulic disc brakes will make you forget all about brake fade on long fire road descents and have more than enough power to stop you and all your gear, even when conditions are less than ideal. And, Rival's shifting precision is matched only by its steadfast longevity, making this wide-range 2 x 11-speed drivetrain an excellent choice for adventure riding. Free yourself to focus on the experience, not fussing over your gear.
