The RKT 9 RDO is intended to do one thing very well—fly. When designing this bike, Niner pulled all the stops to create the most efficient full suspension race-worthy short travel sled. The frame is constructed using their RDO Carbon Compaction technology, which utilizes highly resilient fibers to provide front and rear triangles that are incredibly lightweight and durable. Punish it on daylong epics and be amazed—it will keep coming back for more despite its featherweight feel.
The RKT 9's modern trail geometry is paired with a 120mm fork, creating an extremely capable trail bike that's as ready to line up at an XC race as it is hammering your local trails. The frame utilizes Niner’s patented CVA linkage design, which allows for pedaling forces to operate independently of rear wheel travel. This design ensures every ounce of the rider's hard-earned energy has a clear path to the pedals. Boost spacing and thru axles improve handling and wheel stiffness, and increases the tire clearance—enough for up to a 29 x 2.6-inch tire. The frame’s PF30 bottom bracket provides compatibility with the latest 1x and multi-ring drivetrain configurations, while the thoughtfully designed internal cable routing provides a clean setup that is Di2 ready. And when the terrain gets rough, the frame finds protection with integrated guards in the downtube and driveside chainstay. If bomber speed, efficient climbing, and rugged versatility are your thing, the RKT 9 is the bike that handles it all.
