Niner’s RKT 9 RDO does one thing very well—fly. They pulled out all the stops to create the most efficient full suspension cross-country bike possible. The lightweight RDO-compacted carbon frame employs Niner’s patented Constantly Varying Arc (CVA) rear linkage, which allows pedaling forces and suspension travel to operate independent of one another, so you reap the rewards of every watt you put into the pedals while still enjoying the benefits of a fully suspended race rig. Niner’s suspension paired with a Fox Float DPS shock gives you 90mm of efficient travel. Extra standover clearance allows you to lay the bike over with greater balance and control, gaining the advantage on the competition by carrying more speed through corners. The Boost 148mm rear spacing creates a stronger, stiffer wheel build and greater stability in the rear triangle for better tracking through choppy courses.
Niner’s 4-Star X01 has what you need to dust your competition—and they’ll never see it coming. The ultra-responsive, stiff 100mm-travel RockShox RS1 fork works in perfect symbiosis with the 90mm of rear CVS travel to keep you fast, smooth, and efficient through the most technical trails. That’ll keep those tubeless-ready Maxxis Ikon tires glued to the dirt and Niner’s light, tough Carbon XC wheelset tracking true. SRAM’s X01 1 x 11-speed drivetrain works precisely and without hesitation, getting you the right gear and translating all your input into speed. SRAM’s Guide RSC brakes let you dial in the actuation and modulation, so you have a personalized feel and perfect control every time you squeeze the levers. Niner outfitted the RKT 9 RDO with a super-lightweight, durable carbon RDO handlebar and seatpost to complete the conduit between you and the bike. Finally, a rig as interested in going fast as you.
