KING OF THE MOUNTAIN

THE TRAIL TAMING RIP 9 RDO

Niner's do-it-all trail bike hits the sweet spot with 140mm of consistent, controlled CVA suspension, progressive and adjustable geometry, and increased frame stiffness. Plus it’s got more standover for 170mm dropper posts, longer reach, and a shorter head tube. More versatile and capable than ever before, reach for your RIP to tackle any trail.

The 3-Star SRAM GX Eagle AXS LTD build takes the performance and value of the fan favorite 3-Star SRAM GX Eagle and adds the speed and convenience of electronic shifting.  Mated to the RIP 9 RDO frame and FOX Float Factory suspension, every feature of Niner's most capable trail bike is fully expressed.

Niner's reimagined 140-mm travel trail bike.

“We grew very fond of the Niner Rip 9 RDO. Not just because it’s the best Niner that’s ever been made (in our opinion) but because it’s a damn good bike. We love the looks; from the tube profiles to the colors and stance. It’s a pretty sick little machine. The stiffness and playfulness are real standout features. The bike sort of asks for you to abuse it and to kick and drift the back wheel as much as you can.” - LOAM WOLF


- FEATURES -

A little less travel, and a LOT more bike

The new RIP 9 RDO sports 140mm of CVA suspension on a light, stiff, strong RDO carbon frame. With a 150mm travel FOX 36 fork up front, a 66-degree head tube angle, and a 75.8-degree seat tube angle, we’re hitting the sweet spot of efficiency and capability. We also built in more standover clearance and a shorter seat tube to accommodate 170mm dropper posts.

By adding new Rib Cage struts across the front triangle, flattening the top and down tubes, widening the main rocker link pivot, and beefing up the rear triangle, the entire bike is stiffer from front to back. The struts reduce bottom bracket deflection while keeping the upper portion of the front triangle supple and compliant. And the wide, flat surfaces found on Niner’s top and downtube help to absorb frontal impacts and vibrations while resisting deflection (twisting) under torsional load.

The longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever made

Thanks to the flip-chip, two different geometries mean two bikes in one. The high mode geo is perfect for everyday trail riding. This bike launches uphill and over technical terrain, thanks to CVA suspension and the steep seat tube angle. When you’re all out of breath, turn around and point it down. Drop-in with confidence thanks to the long reach, low BB, and slack, 66-degree head tube angle.

The RIP’s low mode brings out its rock star, party down personality. By slacking out the head angle a full degree to 65, and lowering the bottom bracket 7mm, the RIP transforms into a whole new bike that’s perfect for chairlift days, shuttle sessions and backcountry excursions with long, rowdy descents.

CVA suspension

Niner’s Constantly Varying Arc, or CVA™, suspension design is a short dual-link, a four-bar system unique to Niner, developed in house and patented. It’s built to be supple yet stable, controlling unwanted suspension movement with calibrated anti-squat yet remaining active while climbing and descending. Courtesy of careful leverage ratio tuning, it’s sensitive to small bumps in the early stroke yet supportive in the mid-stroke, which gives riders a platform for pumping and popping off terrain. Going down, it’s consistent and controlled. With no need for heavy compression damping to control unwanted movement, CVA shocks are tuned for consistent, confidence inspiring behaviour on descents.

CVA suspension is perfectly balanced, so the result is stable yet supple, active, ground-hugging traction in every situation - cranking uphill, ripping downhill, and everywhere in between.

RDO carbon fiber

Carbon fiber is common, but care, quality and attention to detail are not. Niner RDO carbon fiber is a cut above. Niner starts with the best raw carbon grades layered precisely according to the stress points on the frame structure. Niner's process employs rigid internal molds in construction and results in a tighter, more consistent carbon fabric compaction. The result? Increased precision in wall thickness and reduced resin pooling in the final product. They can build more elaborate structures with better ride tuning, increased strength, outstanding durability, and less weight.
