Prepare for launch with the RKT 9 RDO RS, Niner's original carbon fiber cross-country bike. With a 100mm suspension fork and 90mm of highly efficient, patented CVA suspension travel, this singletrack missile is made for race-day missions and lofty podium landings. It’s agile frame geometry, and stiff, responsive RDO carbon fiber construction are made for medaling.
Niner’s first bicycles were designed for the demands of cross-country racing and they've applied all their knowledge to this machine. From sprint races to multi-day marathons, this bike is built for all the speed, all the time. When pedaling is your passion, look no further for a platform to support your quest. Agility and accuracy are paramount when quickness is your priority. So the RKT 9 RDO RS frame geometry offers nimble handling with a 71-degree head tube angle and short, 439mm chainstays. On the steepest climbs, a 74.5-degree seat tube helps to keep your hips firmly forward over the bottom bracket.
Niner’s Constantly Varying Arc (CVA), suspension design is a short dual-link, four-bar system unique to Niner. It’s built to be supple yet stable, controlling unwanted suspension movement with calibrated anti-squat, yet remaining active while climbing and descending. Courtesy of careful leverage ratio tuning, it’s sensitive to small bumps in the early stroke yet supportive in the mid-stroke, which gives riders a platform for powering up climbs.
