Rather than designing a no-fun, no-frills, uber-light and too-stiff carbon chassis for the newest RLT 9 RDO, Niner built you a bike that you’ll want to ride all the time, to any place. With more tire clearance, integrated bag mounts, and a slick frame that offers an unbelievably smooth ride, you can pedal it and be happy-anywhere and everywhere. The Niner RLT RDO is a gravel bike designed to make the miles sail past. Shimano's budget-friendly, gravel-specific GRX400 parts kit pairs with Niner wheels, Schwalbe tires, Shimano Tiagra RS400 crankset, and Easton handlebar in a value-priced gravel-grinding package.
Niner incorporates their race day carbon fiber construction into the frame and fork for a ride that is second to none. As a company that prides themselves on being "lifelong gravel addicts", they seem to know a thing or two when it comes to venturing off the pavement. Niner's RDO carbon fiber is light enough and stiff enough to satisfy even the most selective gravel racers. But rather than focusing on creating the lightest, stiffest frame for racing, Niner takes a more thought out approach in maintaining a healthy dose of bump-absorbing compliance for a ride that begs you not to slow down.
This dream bike has 26 mounting points that gives you the option to outfit your bike with as many bags, racks, and bottles as you need to make it through your adventures. Niner also designed custom bags for each specific frame size that mount directly to the frame for a clean and sleek look.
- 26 threaded frame mounts to carry all of your adventure gear
- Room to roam with clearance for tires up to 700c x 50 (650b x 2.0)
- Fireroad geometry designed to keep you comfortable on those long rides
- Interchangeable wheel sizes for versatility and adaptability to suit every adventure
- Biocentric BB to fit any drivetrain
- Niner RDO gravel tuned carbon fork with rack, fender, and bottle mounts
