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. When paired with Niner’s carbon seatpost, fatigue is reduced even further. 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 4-Star delivers a careful 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 complement your untiring endurance. Rely on Shimano's powerful RS785 hydraulic disc brakes to keep your speed in check, even when you just crossed a stream and you're loaded down with camping gear. Just because you prefer dirt doesn't mean you can't be classy.
