Reach for the stars with the Air 9 Carbon. All the advantages of the Air 9 family at a down to earth price.

The new AIR 9 Carbon benefits from the same decade of refinement and testing as does the Air 9 RDO, while fitting into a privateer friendly budget. Riders benefit from the same experience with only a small difference in weight.

NINER CARBON
The AIR 9 CARBON features the same sleek carbon frame design as the Air 9 RDO with a slightly simpler layup and material choice. Riders benefit from 10 years of hardtail development, engineering, process improvement and testing at a privateer friendly budget. In this newest version, you’ll find increased strength and durability along with the addition of a rear maxle for better descending and cornering.

DESIGN
The shapes of our Air 9 Carbon frame are heavily influenced by our long history in carbon fiber race frame design – in particular by our experience in building light, strong hardtails with velvet-smooth off road ride-quality. The rigid sides of our signature downtube and top tube shapes maximize torsional stiffness, with buttery smooth ride quality achieved via the flat sections on each tube, which act like leaf springs. Chainstay and seatstay shaping also benefits from our years of hardtail expertise – designed for ride quality via a carbon layup that also meets the most rigorous standards for mountain bike safety.

PERFORMANCE GEOMETRY
Niner’s hardtail racing geometry is one that has garnered multiple national championships via the original Scandium Air 9, a Singlespeed World Championship via the Air 9 Carbon and World Cup podiums and national series race wins via the Air 9 RDO. Though time tested, Niner’s geometry has not remained stagnant - it has seen continual refinements to account for new technologies and to accommodate new fork travel lengths, while still meeting EN Safety standards for increased forces. The new Air 9 Carbon can safely accommodate forks with up to 120mm of travel, while maintaining the stable, precise steering and handling that lets your relax, be confident and focus on being fast.
The new Air 9 Carbon is offered in the full range of Niner size options, from XS through XL. Smaller sizes have adjusted layup for lighter weight and to avoid toe overlap.

C5 WARRANTY & SAFETY PROGRAM
Our robust R&D program—computer modeling, physical prototype testing (both in-house and at independent testing facilities), and hours of ride testing under highly skilled and abusive test riders leave us confident that the AIR 9 Carbon is going to exceed your safety expectations. We maintain that our carbon fiber testing and design rivals the best in the bike industry, meeting EN (European) standards for safety, even at longer fork travel lengths) We choose to demonstrate this commitment to your well-being and to product durability via our C5 warranty (five year) and commitment to customer service.







PRESS FIT 30 BOTTOM BRACKET
The AIR 9 CARBON utilizes the Press Fit 30 standard, the larger shell mates beautifully with the larger carbon downtube for elegant looks and efficient power transfer so crucial in a race bike. Additionally, this allows for the use of the stiffer, lighter crankset designs that fit the PF30 standard.

FORK
The AIR 9 CARBON frame can be paired with any standard taper steer tube cross country fork from 100-120mm in travel. For the ultimate in light weight short track racing machines, pair it with Niner’s RDO Carbon fork. Niner’s award winning rigid carbon forks have set the standard for weight, ride quality and safety for years – we’ve used this experience to create an race fork with the off-road ride quality racers want. Fork stiffness prevents energy robbing brake rub and the thru axle plus taper-steer tube combo ensures precision cornering on the toughest of courses.

DETAILS AND FINISH
The AIR 9 CARBON frame details benefit from the same iterative process that drives the overall design - the headbadge is sleeker and lighter, the cable routing is direct and easy for team mechanics (or privateers) to maintain. Each of these small changes adds up to a huge difference for a rider that wants to keep focus away from maintenance and on the competition.

AIR 9 CARBON - DAS ORIGINAL CARBON NINER


Das Niner Air 9 Carbon ist auf Leichtigkeit und Schnelligkeit ausgelegt, die mit dem rasiermesserscharfen Handling und den komfortablen Fahreigenschaften kombiniert werden sollten, für die wir seit vielen Jahren sehr bekannt sind. Strukturell handelt es sich um einen Vollcarbonrahmen, bei dem die Ausrichtung der einzelnen hochmodularen Carbonfasermatten penibel bestimmt wurde, um einen sehr leichten aber gleichzeitig stabilen Rahmen zu erhalten. Die Rahmenentwicklung startete mit der Auswertung von technischen Daten, die bereits bei anderen Projekten gesammelt wurden. Dadurch konnte die Grundform der Rohre abgeleitet werden, welche durch FEA-Studien, Modelle und der jahrelangen Erfahrung in der Durchführung von Industriedesign-Projekten verfeinert werden konnte. Jede Form und jedes Rohr wurde auf Basis von Parametern festgelegt, die für das Erreichen einer bestimmten Steifigkeit und Stabilität erforderlich waren. Zu den Schlüsselbereichen zählten das Unterrohr sowie das Innenlager, welche durch zahlreiche strukturelle Variationen zunächst die funktionalen Ansprüche wie die hohe Torsionssteifigkeit erfüllen mussten. Anschließend kümmerten wir uns um die Ästhetik des Rahmens, wobei wir nie den Kraftfluss aus den Augen verlieren durften, um Belastungsspritzen im Rahmen zu vermeiden und die Eigendämpfung des Materials voll ausschöpfen zu können. Der Niner Air 9 Carbon Rahmen ist für schnelles Cross-Country-Biking prädestiniert und bildet die optimale Grundlage für ein leichtes Renn- oder Marathon Bike.

DISEÑO REDEFINIDO
La Air 9 Carbon ahora es una bicicleta para competencias con toques de características RDO, incluyendo diámetros reducidos y perfiles del tubo cortados, uniones más pequeñas, piezas del headseat de carbón moldeado y una cubierta de carbón para el botton bracket. Adicionalmente, el montaje del freno trasero está colocado en la parte interna del cuadro para distribuir las fuerzas de torción aún más, permitiendo piezas de soporte pequeñas.

TUBO DE DIRECCIÓN CÓNICO
Los beneficios de un tubo de dirección cónico no son solo para ciclistas que tienen bicicletas de largo recorrido. Los competidores de XC y ciclistas también obtienen importantes ventajas. Es por eso que incluimos la tecnología en todos nuestros cuadros. Al usar horquillas de suspensión de dirección cónicas, creamos la dirección más rígida posible - lo que aumenta la precisión de la dirección al pasar por una esquina y descender hacia la línea final. El headset integrado utilizado en la Air 9 RDO es ligero y sencillo. Instalación, limpieza y mantenimiento toma segundos en vez de minutos. Una bendición para cualquiera que espera en la línea de salida sin un equipo de mecánicos.

BOTTOM BRACKET PF30
Hay varios estándares de bottom brackets para escoger - para nuestra bicicleta de carreras a nosotros nos gusta PF30. Es compatible con cualquier cranckset BB30 (asó como sistemas de bottom bracket de rosca, con un adaptador) y las copas de los baleros son deliciosamente fáciles de instalar. El eje con tamaño mayor de 30mm es ligero y resiste el torque de incluso los Ninerds más fuertes. Los baleros de gran tamaño hacen girar más y con mayor suavidad. Las copas de plástico del sistema de bottom bracket PF30 no requieren un inserto extra de aluminio, permitiendo una construcción de carbón minimalista.

ENRUTADO INTERNO PARA SHIFTERS
La nueva insignia de aluminio diseñada para una larga duración simplifica los cambios de cables y los protege del exterior.

GEOMETRÍA HARDTAIL NINER
Como ha sido verificado una y otra vez en reviews independientes, Niner tiene la geometría 29er de bicicletas hardtail bien estudiada. Asecendiendo o descendiendo, la geometría de la Air 9 RDO está ajustada para un gran manejo y posicionamiento del ciclista. La Air 9 RDO está hecha para horquillas de 80 y 100mm permitiendo que puedas afinar mejor tu salida a rodar.

La Air 9 RDO è una purosangue – un mezzo senza fronzoli; appositamente costruito per la performance e la velocità. La possiamo considerare una realizzazione concreta della nostra filosofia, che mette la funzionalità prima dell’estetica; sulla nostra nuova Niner, ogni curva ha la sua ragione di essere. L’immagine ha certamente la sua importanza, ma la scintilla dell’amore scocca non appena cominci a far girare i pedali, e a quel punto, la Air 9 RDO parte a razzo.

MIGLIORAMENTO DEL DESIGN
La Air 9 RDO è stata ideata e realizzata come bicicletta multirapporto per le competizioni. Con questo pensiero in testa, ci siamo ispirati alla Air 9 Carbon, ma ne abbiamo ridotto i diametri delle tubazioni e smussato i profili. La scatola movimento centrale della Air 9 RDO , di tipo PF30, se comparata a quella CYA della Air 9 Carbon, è più piccola, con zone di congiunzioni ridotte e non necessita di un inserto in lega di alluminio. Il supporto della pinza freno posteriore è posizionato in modo strategico all’interno dei sinuosi foderi, al fine di distribuire equamente le forze di torsione e permetterci di impiegare dei supporti pinza più piccoli e quindi di ridurre lo spessore dei foderi. Anche i supporti atti ad ospitare la serie sterzo sono realizzati in carbonio – abbiamo eliminato grammi su grammi; ovunque fosse possibile. Il risultato finale? Un telaio da 1125gr pronto a stupirti.

TUBO STERZO CONIFICATO
I benefici di un tubo sterzo conificato non si fanno sentire solo sulle biciclette a lunga escursione, ma anche i XCountristi possono beneficiarne e questo è il motivo per il quale abbiamo implementato tale tecnologia su tutti i nostri nuovi telai. Utilizzando forcelle con cannotto conico, siamo in grado di ottenere la massima rigidità dell’avantreno – che comporta la massima precisione di guida quando si affrontano le curve e ci si proietta verso la linea del traguardo. La serie sterzo di tipo integrata, utilizzata sulla Air 9 RDO, è minimale e leggerissima; la sua installazione, pulizia e manutenzione richiedono un paio di secondi; un dettaglio non trascurabile per tutti quelli che si presentano al via senza avere l’assistenza di un meccanico.

MOVIMENTO CENTRALE PF30
Per quanto concerne i movimenti centrali, ci sono diversi standard fra cui scegliere – per il nostro mezzo dedicato alle competizioni abbiamo scelto il PF30. Tale movimento è compatibile con qualunque guarnitura con standard BB30 (e mediante adattatori con qualunque guarnitura per movimento centrale di tipo filettato) e le calotte sono molto facili da installare. Il perno della guarnitura, da ben 30mm, è leggero e resiste alle poderose pedalate di qualunque Ninerds. I cuscinetti maggiorati ruotano senza impuntamenti ed hanno una lunga longevità. Le calotte in materiale plastico non richiedono l’utilizzo di una bussola filettata all’interno della scatola movimento centrale; permettendoci quindi di mantenere una struttura in carbonio minimalista.

PASSAGGIO CAVI INTERNO
Il badge posto sul tubo sterzo è stato rivisto, per permettere l’utilizzo di guaine senza interruzioni, in modo da semplificare la sostituzione dei cavi e di proteggerli dallo sporco.

UN RISPARMIO DI PESO CONCRETO
Questo mezzo è più leggero della Air 9 Carbon? Si, e non di poco. La Air 9 RDO in taglia media ha una massa di 1125gr (senza collarino reggisella e nastro protettivo sul tubo obliquo). In sostanza siamo sull’ordine dei 230gr in meno rispetto alla Air 9 Carbon. Se la tua filosofia è quella di arrivare dal punto A al punto B nel minor tempo possibile, allora dovresti provare la Air 9 RDO.

GEOMETRIA NINER DA HARDTAIL
Come più volte ribadito da numerose riviste, la geometria delle hardtail Niner è decisamente azzeccata. Sia in salita, che in discesa, la geometria della Air 9 regala grande precisione di guida e ottimo posizionamento in sella. La Air 9 RDO è concepita per forcelle da 80 – 100mm per permetterti di adattare il mezzo alle tue caratteristiche.
