Niner’s RIP 9 Carbon will shred on even the most challenging trails. The carbon front triangle and aluminum rear are linked with carbon suspension rockers and utilize Niner’s CVA suspension design to deliver 125mm of rear wheel travel. This gives you a lightweight confidence-inspiring trail bike that’s as ready to climb as it is to descend.
Take on new trails with aggressive confidence aboard Niner’s RIP 9 3-Star. A rowdy RockShox Pike RC fork delivers 140mm of front end travel to soak up truckloads of rock and root, keeping you on your line when the chop gets thick. That finely-tuned travel keeps your Maxxis Ardent tires dug-in and biting. A pair of trustworthy Niner hoops ensure a stiff and predictable interface with the earth. And, you might as well take advantage of all that traction by sending raw power through a trail-loving Shimano XT 1 x 11-speed drivetrain that delivers a broad gear range with the shifting accuracy you’ve come to expect from XT-level drivetrain components. Those XT brake levers offer precise modulation and remarkable strength let you rein in the speed when when things get hairy. The 3-Star’s cockpit is lined up with high-end Niner bits like an RDO carbon handlebar, Niner Grrrips and TR stem, along with a RockShox Reverb dropper seatpost that lets you climb like a mountain goat and descend like a bobsled. Try out the RIP 9 3-Star and discover a whole new animal of trail riding.
