You ride the road less traveled and Niner’s RLT 9 Steel was purpose-built for you. Such two-wheeled adventure calls for a well-engineered frame made of the finest materials. Niner knows this, which is why they blended legendary Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics, utilizing thru-axles and a tapered head tube to deliver the time-tested durability and ride quality of steel with the performance advantages offered by modern bike design. The tapered head tube pairs with a gravel-tuned carbon Niner fork that is both stiff and strong while damping the chatter from pocked roads and stones, all while nonchalantly carrying you and your 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. And, you will fear no grade, because drivetrain options are nearly limitless. The RLT 9 can accommodate a double or triple chainring, or just a single ring if simplicity is your thing.

To maximize comfort during extended hours in the saddle, the supple steel is beautifully welded with All-Day Adventure-Tuned Geometry that features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube angle than many bikes often use for adventure riding. This means you get a ride that is more stable, rides more smoothly, and carries loads with pleasure—exactly what you’ve been looking for in an adventure bike. And, of course, the RLT 9 offers front and rear rack braze-ons, as well as three water bottle mounts to facilitate all your gear-hauling needs with myriad options to suit person and purpose.
