Introducing the King of the Mountain, the trail taming RIP 9 RDO. The longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever made.
For more than a decade, the RIP 9 RDO trail bike has ruled Niner’s off-road lineup. It’s a do-it-all trail bike that 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.
Thanks to the flip chip, two different geometries mean two bikes in one. The high mode geometry 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.
The RIP 9 RDO is the perfect bike for South Florida riders who love long-travel, slack bikes for tooling around the local trails and getting serious on bike trips up north and out west on the most rugged, mountain terrains.
