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.
The RIP 9 2-Star is ready to take on whatever the trail and the day have in store. The Fox 34 Float Performance fork drives forward, chewing up 140mm of trail debris. The active suspension keeps the Niner alloy wheels glued to the trail to guarantee that the already masterful Maxxis Ardent tires hook up predictably and aggressively. SRAM’s lightweight GX 1 x 11-speed drivetrain deftly shifts through its considerable range and keeps your handlebar clutter-free. And, SRAM’s powerful DB5 hydraulic brakes let you push your limits with confidence, while Niner’s cockpit ensures comfort and control. A KS dropper post lets you adjust saddle height on the fly for efficient climbing and all-out descending.
