It’s just you and the bike on race day. Niner’s BSB 9 is your one-up on the competition. Lightning-fast response, maximum power transfer, and state-of-the-art construction combine to deliver even in the most adverse conditions. The BSB garners its race performance from a slew of Niner-specific technology.
The frame is a product of RDO Carbon Compaction, a technology utilizing rigid internal molds for tighter, more consistent compacted carbon layers, which means the frame can be made lighter-weight while maintaining Niner’s strength and durability standards. The BSB 9 RDO rides and feels like a proper cyclocross bike should, designed with a steep head tube angle for fast handling, a size and crank length-specific bottom bracket height for sure cornering, and short chainstays (425mm) for technical maneuvers. And, the frame is paired with Niner’s award winning RDO cyclocross fork, which provides the off-road ride quality you want in your race bike. Niner’s robust R&D program and hours of ride testing ensure the BSB 9 will withstand the brutal punishment that your cyclocross season is sure to dish out.
Cyclocross-specific design elements are found throughout the BSB 9 RDO. Cyclocross demands ergonomic frame shapes – the bike must be easy to lift, carry, and shoulder. Riders will find friendly flat tube shapes, comfortable shoulder positioning, and thoughtful placement of cables to aid in the best barrier technique. The front triangle is free of cable guides, and external rear brake routing on the side of the down tube keeps everything out of the way when shouldering your bike. Full length housing is used for clean, crisp shifting race after muddy race, and internal routing with large access windows makes for easy maintenance and simple Di2 routing. A post-mount rear brake helps to prevent brake-heel interference. All frame sizes accommodate two water bottle mounts so you’re ready for race and training days.
The BSB 9 RDO 4-Star delivers a fast yet smart blend of practicality and passion, knowing where to put the bling and where to get clever when it comes to optimizing performance. Its Shimano Ultegra shifters and derailleurs push the sophistication up a notch or two and provide top-level shifting to keep up with your speed needs. And, you can rely on Shimano's powerful RS785 hydraulic disc brakes to keep your speed in check just enough toso you stick your line and take a position on the chase. Just because you prefer dirt and mud to tarmac doesn't mean you can't be fast and classy.
