NINER RLT 9 2-Star - Apex

The first Niner designed for both 29 and 700C wheels.* Run narrower wheels and tires for brief journeys away from the beaten path, try something bigger for places where terrain is uncertain but adventure is guaranteed.

HYDROFORMED TUBING AND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS
Designed with a tube set similar to the proven AIR 9, the RLT 9’s tube shapes are shaped to meet Niner’s ride quality standards. Even riders who prefer the company of saguaros to the cacophony of crowds appreciate comfort and low weight. Proprietary forged dropouts are designed to reduce weight and integrate the low-profile post brake mount with the chainstay. 27.2mm seatpost reduces road vibrations on gravel or chip seal roads and reduces body fatigue on all-day rides. When paired with the RDO Seatpost (designed for twice the flex of traditional carbon posts), fatigue is reduced even further.

NINER CARBON FORK
Niner makes the best off road rigid forks in the world and now we bring this experience to dirt roads everywhere. The RLT 9 frameset continues our award winning ways with a full carbon, gravel-tuned and custom painted Niner Carbon Fork. All Niner forks and frames are tested to mountain bike safety standards.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
Full cable housing keeps the grit out of your shifting system in the nastiest conditions. Cables enter the down tube behind the head tube and exit below the BB for easy set up and low maintenance, and when you’re ready, we’ve integrated Di2 compatibility with a seatpost wiring port.

BIOCENTRIC 30
The standard PF30 bottom bracket shell offers both geared and singlespeed compatibility using the new BioCentric 30. Sometimes simplicity is the key to a triumphant journey, sometimes you need a bit of help from your (granny gear) friends.

FIRE ROAD GEOMETRY
Slightly longer CS, lower BB, Slacker HT angle are ideal for a stable ride on the rockiest of roads and still capable of winning a proper cross or 2 for the privateer.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE - RLT 9 vs BSB 9?
Niner’s RLT and BSB offer different advantages to riders
The BSB is a born and bred cyclocross racing machine for riders seeking every advantage. The ultra light carbon frame is pared down to the basics to keep the weight down - even the paint is minimal. The steep headtube angle is specific to the tight corners and precision handling required to race at the highest level. The Bottom Bracket height is specific to crank length for better clearance on off camber course features and the very short 425mm chainstays are made for tight corners and sprint finishes. The Niner RDO Cyclocross Fork features a 15mm thru axle for best steering input.

The RLT 9 is designed as the Swiss Army Knife of off road drop bar bikes - commute on Monday, race on Saturday and make Sunday your day to wander the backroads. The hydroformed alloy frame is designed to reduce vibration and provide efficiency. The slacker headtube, lower bottom bracket and longer (435mm) chainstays combine for a stable machine perfect for long haul rides. The 1.75” tire clearance means that if you have the chops to ride drop bars on trail, you’ve got a bike that is capable. The Niner Carbon Gravel Grinder fork features QR drop outs and rack and fender mounts for maximum versatility.
