NINER'S FLAGSHIP TRAILBIKE
“Quiver Killer” meets RDO Carbon Compaction in our top-end trail bike. Winner of Outside Magazine’s Gear of the Year award as well as the Eurobike Award for design, the RIP 9 RDO sets the standard for bikes that need to get up to really get down. We’ve incorporated global rider feedback as well as our rigorous carbon design, engineering and testing standards to take a bike that is known for ride quality and handling, and up the ante with the RDO Carbon Compaction System, carbon linkages, ISCG compatibility and exactly the right amount of travel.

RDO CARBON COMPACTION SYSTEM
The RIP 9 RDO is beautiful from the inside out via Niner’s Carbon Compaction System. Now used throughout the Niner RDO lineup, this CCS utilizes rigid internal molds and results in tighter, more consistent compaction of the carbon layers, yielding increased precision in wall thickness and significantly reduced resin pooling in the final product, allowing us to aim for better ride tuning, increased strength and durability along with the weight reduction that results from a more efficient process.

CVA™ SUSPENSION
The RIP 9 RDO features Niner’s patented CVA suspension (U.S. Patent No. 7,934,739) and delivers 125mm of fully active travel with superb compliance and damping via a tuned for CVA Fox Float CTD Factory Shock with Trail Adjust and Kashima Coat. For those seeking the technical advantages of 29” wheels combined with pedaling efficiency across all chainring combinations (not just the middle ring), CVA™ is the front-runner. The result? A faster, smoother ride up and down the trail.

VERSATILE GEOMETRY
To progress as a rider you need predictability, balance and nimble handling and Niner is the company that first made fun trail bike 29ers a reality. Climbing or descending, the geometry of the RIP 9 RDO is tuned to keep you in control and ready to conquer new terrain at every turn. The RIP 9 RDO is intended for 120 to 140mm forks, allowing riders to further fine tune the ride.

C5 WARRANTY
Our robust R&D program - computer modeling, physical prototype testing (both in-house and at independent testing facilities), and hours of riding by skilled and abusive individuals make us confident that the RIP 9 RDO will exceed your expectations. We maintain that our RDO Carbon compaction system rivals the best in the bike industry and to back it up we offer our C5 warranty (five year) and a standard-setting commitment to customer service.

TAPERED HEADTUBE
The increased surface area of a tapered headtube allows for a larger downtube, increasing strength and rigidity at this critical intersection. Tapered fork steerer tubes measurably reduce fork deflection, which means your Niner tracks straight and true. The full spectrum of riders from XC racers to All Mountain shredders benefit from these features which is why we incorporate the technology in all our new frames. The RIP 9 RDO lets you take full advantage of increased steering precision as you negotiate your daily dose of singletrack.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL
When you are in the backcountry, the details are what take your ride into the sublime. The trim and sexy carbon links rotate on oversized Angular Contact Bearings for awesome lateral rigidity and immediate power transfer, dropper post routing and ISCG 05 chainguide compatibility mean you can build this bike to fit your ride style and an integrated replaceable skid plate lets you try that optional line with confidence. The RIP 9 RDO features more tire clearance, full housing internal cable routing for a clean look and precision-machined alloy interfaces for the bottom bracket, direct-mount front derailleur and brake caliper post mounts.

R.I.P. 9 RDO

Lange erwartet, ständig nachgefragt. Nach zwei Jahren Entwicklungszeit kommt das R.I.P. 9 RDO Trailbike nun als Carbonvariante. Schon die erste Generation des R.I.P. in Aluminium wurde von den fünf größten Fachzeitschriften aus den USA bejubelt und erhielt Auszeichnungen wie "Bestes 29er des Jahres 2007". Die Version in Carbon wird ebenfalls sehr gut von den Fahrern und Medien aufgenommen, sodass das R.I.P. 9 bereits als Referenz der All-Mountain-Kategorie nicht nur unter 29er Bikes, sondern auch bei 26-Zoll-Bikes angesehen wird.

Die hauseigene CVA Federungstechnologie ermöglicht eine sehr effiziente Federung, die in jeder Situation über einen Federweg von 125 mm aktiv und sanft arbeitet. Die perfekte Balance wird gemeinsam mit einer Federgabel von 120 bis 140 mm erreicht. Der preisgekrönte Rahmen profitiert stark von den neuen Design- und Fertigungstechnologien, die bei sämtlichen Rahmenteilen vom Steuerrohr bis zum Ausfallende berücksichtigt worden sind.

Bei jedem Detail haben wir uns gefragt, ob wir es noch besser machen können. Integrierte Zugverlegung für Schaltung und absenkbare Sattelstütze, ISCG 05 Aufnahme gehören zum Erscheinungsbild wie Rahmenschützer und Skid Plate aus Titanblechen unter dem Tretlager. Empfohlen sind 2 - fach Kurbelgarnituren wie z.B. SRAM 26/29 oder kleiner, Shimano XT 28/40 oder kleiner, Shimano XTR 26/38. XTR mit 40 Zähnen wird nicht empfohlen, da Kontakt zum Rahmen möglich ist.

TRAIL BIKE
La “Quiver Killer” ahora en carbón. Después de 2 años de desarrollo de la tan solicitada trail bike de carbón de Niner finalmente hace su aparición. La RIP 9 RDO incorpora las peticiones de los ciclistas a nivel mundial así como un riguroso diseño de carbón, ingeniería y estándares de pruebas. Nuestra RIP 9 de aleación tiene más de 30 menciones en los medios de comunicación por su calidad y facilidad de manejo - la RIP 9 RDO toma estas características y sube la apuesta con un cuadro de carbón, uniones, compatibilidad ISC y recorrido adicional.

SUSPENSIÓN CVA™
La R.I.P. 9 RDO cuenta con la suspensión CVA de Niner (U.S. Patent No. 7,934,739) e incluye 125mm de recorrido totalmente activo con excelente compatibilidad y amortiguación a través del Shock Fox Float CTD Factory adaptado para CVA con Ajuste para Trail y Revestimiento Kashima Para todos aquellos que buscan las ventajas técnicas de las llantas 29” combinadas con eficiencia de pedaleo a través de todas las combinaciones de cambios, CVA™ es el candidato principal. ¿El resultado? Una rápida y suave rodada tanto en ascensos como en descensos en el camino.

GEOMETRÍA VERSÁTIL
Para progresar como ciclista necesitas previsilidad, equilibrio y manejo ágil y Niner es la primera empresa que hizo una realidad una bicicleta de veredas divertidas en rodada 29”. Ascendiendo o descendiendo, la geometría de la R.I.P. 9 RDO está ajustada para mantener el control y está lista para conquistar nuevos terrenos a cada paso. La R.I.P. 9 RDO está hecha para horquillas de 120 a 140mm permitiendo a los ciclistas afinar más sus rodadas.

Sostenemos que nuestro desarrollo de fibra de carbón compite con los mejores de la industria de la bicicleta y para respaldarlo ofrecemos nuestra garantía C5 (cinco años) y un compromiso de establecimiento de normas de servicio al cliente.

TUBO DE DIRECCIÓN CÓNICO
La superficie incrementada en el tubo de dirección cónico permite un down tube más grande, incrementando la resistencia y rigidez en esta crítica intersección. Un tubo de dirección cónico en la suspensión reduce grandemente la desviación de la horquilla, lo que significa que tu Niner te lleva por el rumbo correcto. El espectro completo de ciclistas desde competidores de XC hasta los amantes del All Mountain se benefician de estas características las cuales son el motivo por el cual incorporamos la tecnología en todos nuestros cuadros. La R.I.P. 9 RDO te permite sacar el mejor provecho de una mayor precisión de la dirección a medida que vas incrementando tu dósis diaria de singletracks.

ATENCIÓN A LOS DETALLES
Cuando estás en el campo, los detalles son los que te pueden llevar hacia lo sublime. Las recortadas y sensuales uniones de carbón rotan sobre Baleros de Contacto Angular para dar una impresionante rigidez lateral e inmediata transmisión de fuerza, dropper post routing y compatibilidad para guía de cadena ISCG 05 significa que puedes construir esta bicicleta para adaptarse al estilo de tus rodadas y una placa de deslizamiento substituible integrado permite probar esa línea opcional con confianza.

CVA IS PATENTED (U.S. Patent No. 7,934,739)
CVA is a unique, award-winning suspension design and has been recognized with a US Patent.

CVA IS THE ONLY 29er SPECIFIC SUSPENSION DESIGN
CVA is the only suspension designed to take advantage of the increased bottom bracket drop of 29ers.

CVA OFFERS EFFICIENT PEDALING IN ALL CHAINRINGS
Because the lower swingarm linkage is located underneath the bottom bracket, chain torque in any chainring effectively neutralizes the unwanted forces that degrade power transfer to the rear wheel.

CVA IS POSITIVELY REVIEWED AROUND THE WORLD
CVA-equipped Niners have earned praise from riders in online forums and magazines all over the globe.

Although CVA resembles some of the other parallel link designs, CVA works very differently to isolate pedaling forces and remain fully active under all conditions. Many current suspension designs, especially some parallel link suspension designs, maximize efficiency by anticipating that most of your pedaling will be done in the middle chainring and are designed around this ‘virtual’ pivot location. This means that there is some compromise to the suspension’s pedalability when NOT in the middle chainring or when using a 2x10 set up. The better the design, the less noticeable this compromise is.

In order to isolate pedaling forces across a broader range of gearing, the CVA’s ‘instant center’ location is in front of the drivetrain. With the lower pivot under the bottom bracket, the force at the rear axle resulting from chain tension pulls the two linkages in opposite directions in all gear choices, effectively isolating the drivetrain from the rear triangle. In other words, when a rider cranks on the pedals, the chain is trying to pull the lower link down and away from the bottom bracket, and the upper link in its regular rotational path. Since the rear triangle is one piece, these opposing forces cancel each other out, leaving the only outlet for chain-induced torque being rotation of the rear wheel, where it’s most wanted.

Past the rearward-most position at sag, the axle path moves in towards the bike at a gradual, constantly varying arc, which insures that there is minimal chain growth throughout the length of travel. This also means minimal pedal feed back in the drivetrain while cycling the suspension, essentially isolating it from the fully active movement of the suspension design.

Ultimately, there are many variables in suspension – we believe that we have created a strong, 29er specific system, and that the best way to test it is to go out and ride a Niner full suspension bike.

CVA ESTÁ PATENTADO (Patente de EEUU núm. 7.934.739)
El exclusivo sistema de suspensión CVA (Constantly Varying Arc) ha sido galardonado por su diseño y patentado en EEUU.

CVA ES LA ÚNICA SUSPENSIÓN DISEÑADA ESPECÍFICAMENTE PARA LAS 29er
CVA es la única suspensión diseñada para sacar el máximo rendimiento a la caja de pedalier de las 29er.

CVA OFRECE LA MAYOR EFICIENCIA PARA CUALQUIER DESARROLLO
Gracias a la estudiada geometría de los cuadros, la unión inferior del basculante se ubica justo por debajo de la caja de pedalier, neutralizando de esta forma las fuerzas que pudieran alterar la transferencia de potencia a la rueda trasera para cualquier desarrollo.

CVA HA SIDO APROBADO POR LA CRÍTICA A NIVEL MUNDIAL
Los cuadros que montan el sistema CVA se han ganado elogios en blogs y revistas del sector de todo el mundo.

A pesar que, aparentemente, el sistema CVA se asemeja a otras suspensiones, CVA destaca por su funcionamiento, trabajando de forma muy distinta al resto. El sistema está orientado a aislar las fuerzas que generamos al pedalear en cualquiera de la situaciones y a sacarles el mayor rendimiento. Muchos de los diseños actuales, especialmente aquellos que utilizan la suspensión paralela como punto de partida, basan su eficiencia mediante la previsión de que la mayor parte de la fuerza de transmisión procederá del plato mediano y se diseñan en base a ese criterio, lo que termina derivando en fuerzas laterales cuando la cadena no se ubica en el plato mediano o cuando utilizamos un conjunto 2x10. Un buen diseño es directamente proporcional a la disipación de dichas fuerzas laterales.

La suspensión CVA consigue aislar la fuerza que generamos al pedalear gracias a los engranajes de su sistema y al hecho que el "Instant Center" de la suspensión esté ubicado por delante de la transmisión. Con el pivote inferior situado debajo de la caja de pedalier, la fuerza en el eje trasero (que surge como resultado de la tensión de la cadena) tira de ambos engranajes en direcciones opuestas para aislar eficazmente el tren motriz del triángulo trasero.

La estudiada compresión de la suspensión se produce gracias a la trayectoria del eje que se mueve hacia la parte interior en un arco gradual constante garantizando, para todos los desarrollos, la correcta tensión de la cadena y reduciendo los problemas derivados de una incorrecta transmisión.

Obviamente, en el mercado encontramos distintos sistemas de suspensión pero el CVA es nuestra apuesta. Un sistema sólido, específico para las bicicletas 29er y que podrás descubrir al rodar cualquiera de los cuadros Niner de doble suspensión.
