      Completely Redesigned AIR 9 RDO
      Niner’s history is rooted in the evolution of mountain biking. From the introduction of our first hardtail, we’ve worked tirelessly to push the limits of what people think is possible when it comes to the construction, geometry and handling of premium bicycles. The [R]Evolution that began with the RKT 9 RDO continues with the new AIR 9 RDO, Bigger is Still Better, your Big Wheel Crush is now faster and more refined.

      Design
      The new AIR 9 RDO is a product of the [R]Evolution of our classic twenty-niner hardtail. We’ve learned so much since the early days and applied that knowledge of geometry and materials to meet the ever-changing demands and riding styles of the modern mountain biker. What we’ve created is undoubtedly the best race and high performance hardtail we’ve made to date, one that will give you all the versatility, durability and performance you’ve come to expect from Niner.

      The new frame’s identity has been refreshed with a bold design aesthetic. Continuing the lineage that began with RKT 9 RDO the strong, overbuilt shapes that define the meat of the frame let you know it’s got plenty of horsepower under the hood. But to keep the ride smooth, the sleek tubes that comprise the length of the cockpit and seatstays are designed to dissipate racetrack roughness, helping keep your wheels glued to the ground for great off-the-line acceleration. All you have to do is pedal damn it!

      Features
      The [R]Evolution geometry of the AIR 9 RDO caters to the racer and rider who places a premium on a snappy, race day whip. Following the lead of the redesigned RKT 9 RDO, the new AIR drops the handlebar height to put the rider in the attack position and ready to charge. Lengthening the cockpit and slackening the head angle further lends to that race-ready feel and adds to the razor sharp handling when slashing singletrack at speed. If you’re a rider looking to increase the fun factor, yet still want the lightest, fastest hardtail we offer, the all new Air 9 RDO is now compatible with 120mm travel forks. The 120mm fork will transform the Air 9 RDO from a racetrack taming weapon into a comfortable, all day trail ripping machine by bringing the bars up and shortening the reach to a more neutral position. And out back, the chainstays were shortened up, but not too short making the bike twitchy. Instead they shed 4mm to a targeted 435mm, so you still get lightning fast acceleration without giving up the balanced handling and on-the-fly stability you need in a race day rig.

      For a carbon structure to be as light, strong and durable as possible, the layers of carbon cloth need to be properly aligned with as few voids and extra resin as possible. This is why the AIR 9 RDO frame is built using our Carbon Compaction System. By wrapping carbon around an EPS foam internal mandrel and then compacting the entire system inside a mold, we are able to control wall thickness throughout the frame and force out any excessive resin while the frame cures. What we achieve is a 10% reduction in frame weight with a fully-engineered carbon layup that delivers everything you want in a hardtail race bike.

      Originally lauded to improve the geometry and kinematics of full suspension frames, Boost 148 has similar benefits for the humble hardtail as well. Widening the spacing of the rear dropouts creates a structure more able to resist twisting, but just as importantly, it enables stronger wheels because of improved spoke bracing angles. This crucial geometry revision also allows the engineers to tuck the rear wheel closer in to the bottom bracket while maintaining ample tire clearance and the ability to run up to a 38-tooth chainring.

      Versatility is one of the attributes that has become a Niner signature feature over the years and it finally gets the full carbon, RDO treatment. The oversized bottom bracket area of course provides a robust platform for pedaling and overall handling, but now it also gives you the choice to run almost any crank and bottom bracket combination imaginable. The PF30 can be run standard for the lightest race day power plant option available, but if single speeding is your gig, then no worries. Easily install the patented Niner BioCentric 30 bottom bracket cups to give you chain tension and geometry adjustability for your single speed setup, or do it even if it’s just because you prefer running 24mm spindle cranks. Never before has a full carbon race bike given you so many options.

      In this age of internal routing and ever-changing drivetrain options, the AIR 9 RDO features a window under the bottom bracket for easy service. Pull the plate off the window and get instant access to any wires and cables routed through the downtube, all without the need to remove the cranks and pull the bottom bracket. Replacing cables and routing Di2 wires has never been easier.

      It’s no mystery that a seatpost can add greatly to the ride feel and comfort of any bike. In an effort to provide you a compliant perch atop the AIR 9 RDO we turn to a smaller seatpost diameter. The 27.2mm post allows a strategic measure of sway, especially when it’s our RDO carbon fiber post, tuned to add a targeted amount of flex.

      The only metal in the AIR 9 RDO is found in the brake caliper mount on the chainstay. Threading the calipers on here provides them an amount of protection from the occasional tumble, but more importantly it puts them on the stronger of the two stays. The chainstay is already pretty stout and doesn’t require a lot of added material to securely deal with the added braking forces. That leaves us free to keep the seatstay slender, save precious grams and maintain the intended ride quality.

      AIR 9 RDO - RACE DAY OPTIMIZED


      Das Air 9 RDO ist ein Vollblüter und als Race Bike konzipiert worden und fühlt sich in der Sparte zuhause. Ein pures Werkzeug, das nur für Geschwindigkeit und Performance gebaut worden ist.

      In Einklang mit unserer Form-Follows-Function-Philosophie ist kein Teil und keine Carbonlage zu viel am neuen Niner RDO Rahmen. Obwohl Aussehen wichtig ist, begeistert das Air 9 RDO besonders, so bald der Fahrer in die Pedale tritt und das Air 9 RDO beschleunigt.

      Das neue PressFit30 Tretlagergehäuse ist wesentlich leichter, denn es kommt ohne Aluhülse aus, wir setzen auch da auf Carbon. Die Bremsenaufnahme befindet sich in den geschwungenen Streben des hinteren Rahmendreiecks, so dass trotz kleinerer Halterungen und dünnerer Wandstärke die Kräfte gleichmäßiger verteilt werden können. Selbst das Steuerrohr besteht aus Carbon. Unsere Ingenieure haben an Gewicht gespart, wo es nur ging.

      Das konische (tapered) Steuerrohr bietet, zusammen mit konischen Gabelschäften, ein äußerst steifes Cockpit. Dadurch erhöht sich die Lenkpräzision, was dem Rad zu einer unglaublichen Kurvenlage verhilft. Ein weiterer Vorteil des integrierten Steuerrohres ist der geringe Wartungs- und Reinigungsaufwand.

      Wenn deine Philosophie auf dem Rad die ist, als erster anzukommen, dann schwing dich auf das Air 9 RDO!

      La Air 9 RDO es un purasangre - un instrumento con mucho sentido construido para velocidad y rendimiento. Una extensión de nuestra filosofía forma-sigue-función. Ninguna curva esta fuera de lugar en la nueva Niner. Y mientras la apariencia es importante, la verdadera atracción empieza tan pronto como empujas en los pedales y la Air 9 RDO va a toda máquina.

      DISEÑO REDEFINIDO
      La Air 9 RDO tiene como objetivo específico ser una bicicleta de carreras. Con esto en mente nos hemos referido a las líneas con propósito de la Air 9 Carbon pero diámetros reducidos y perfiles cortados. Comparado con el orificio para el bottom bracket CYA de la Air 9 Carbon, el pequeño orificio PF30 de la Air 9 RDO sugeridas más pequeñas uniones y la negación de insertos de aleación. El el soporte del freno trasero está adherido en la parte interior de la curva del cuadro para distribuir las fuerzas de torsión de manera uniforme, permitiendo piezas de soporte más pequeñas y grosor menor de la pared de carbón. Incluso las piezas internas en el headset son de carbón moldeado - hemos rasurado gramos de donde pudimos encontrarlos. ¿El resultado? Un cuadro Niner de 1125g que golpeará tus calcetines.

      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 meta. 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.

      AHORRO DE PESO EN EL MUNDO REAL
      ¿Es más ligera que la Air 9 Carbon? Si. Un poco más ligera. La Air 9 RDO promedia 1125g en un cuadro talla Mediana (sin abrazadera del tubo del asiento ni cinta protectora inferior del cuadro). Eso es más de 226.79g que su hermana. Si llegar a la meta tan pronto como sea posible es tu juego, vas a querer poner tus piernas sobre la Air 9 RDO.

      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 ha sido creada 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.
