NINER CARBON: ABOVE AND BEYOND
The use of Carbon in bicycle frames and components has reached critical mass, but in the scurry to meet demand, much has been lost in the translation. Niner’s path to this element comes from a different direction. Rather than just offering carbon products, we make sure we are maximizing the benefits of the material and that our carbon products are purpose-built from the ground up.

We start with computer-based shaping. Drawing from FEA studies that we conduct on our current products and by buying and testing other offerings, we establish a solid framework of stiffness and strength numbers within which to work. Studying energy flow from trail input and chain torque, we then refine a fluid shape that disperses this energy throughout the structure and eliminates stress risers and hot spots. Our objective is to use the natural damping of carbon to increase the fatigue life of the structure and decrease the vibrations translated to the rider.

The visible shape of our products directly correlates to the stiffness and strength numbers we want to achieve. With carbon, it’s very easy to get stuck in a game of just ‘layer it up’. The easiest path is to create a shape and then add carbon layers in any critical area until the structure is strong enough to pass testing. This approach is not good enough for Niner Bikes. Structural form and shaping are the key contributors establishing stiffness and strength in all critical areas. The final shape of our frames and forks reflect the intent to achieve optimal function without falling into the ‘layer it up’ quicksand.

Once shapes are finalized in the computer, we utilize rapid prototyping to build full-scale SLA models to ensure fit with other components and to confirm tolerances. Next, we open a mold and build physical samples for testing. All of our carbon products undergo exhaustive physical destructive and strength evaluation before we release them for ride testing. Any revision during this process requires a new round of destructive stress testing to guarantee that refinements do not have a negative impact on overall strength and only serve to increase ride quality or decrease weight – a routine we are committed to in every new product design process.

The path to a final product is long and winding, but every step is critical when creating a Niner product. Carbon is an amazing material with a world of possibilities and our dedication to finding the best options for every frame and component is key to the Niner design process.

C5 WARRANTY
Niner Bikes offers a five year warranty on all carbon products. This includes the Niner Air 9 Carbon frame, the Niner Carbon Fork and the Niner Flat Top carbon bar.

We are proud of the testing and care we put into the design and manufacture of our carbon products. We feel that the best way to show this is to offer a 5 year warranty period on all carbon items - our C5 program. This warranty is retroactive for all owners of Niner carbon products.

We maintain that our carbon fiber testing and design rivals the best in the bike industry. Rather than just talking about it, we choose to demonstrate this commitment via projects such as our fork-hammering video and our warranty.

DETAILS
Warranty is retroactive for all current owners of Niner Air 9 Carbon frames and forks. Warranty is only available for original product owners with proof of purchase from an authorized Niner dealer, no online auction purchases will be honored. For all new purchases, online registration is required for warranty service.
