The RIP 9 RDO is Niner's king of the mountain shredder. This flagship bike hits the sweet spot with 140mm of consistent, controlled CVA suspension, progressive and adjustable geometry, and increased frame stiffness. Updated standover supports 170mm dropper posts, while longer reach and shorter head and seat tubes make it the longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever made.

By adding Rib Cage struts across the front triangle, flattening the top and down tubes, widening the main rocker link pivot, and beefing up the rear triangle, the entire bike is stiffer from front to back. The struts reduce bottom bracket deflection while keeping the upper portion of the front triangle supple and compliant. And the wide, flat surfaces found on Niner’s top and downtube help to absorb frontal impacts and vibrations while resisting deflection (twisting) under torsional load.

Thanks to the flip chip, two different geometries mean two bikes in one. The high mode geometry is perfect for everyday trail riding. This bike launches uphill and over technical terrain effortlessly.
Ready for a downhill day? The RIP’s low mode slacks out the head angle a full degree to 65, and lowers the bottom bracket 7mm, This transforms the RIP into a whole new bike that’s perfect for chairlift days, shuttle sessions and backcountry excursions with long, rowdy descents.  

Build it your way with the RIP 9 RDO frame-only option. Includes FOX Float DPX2 Factory EVOL rear shock. RDO carbon fiber keeps the platform light and stiff. Full Sleeve internal cable routing makes it easy to build, and Boost hub spacing gives you freedom for all the wheel and tire options you could want.
