Steering precision starts with the front of the bike. Improved rigidity in this critical area translates to less wheel deflection and more control. A larger headtube gives us room to fit a massive hydroformed downtube that joins the bottom bracket to become the burly heart of the bike. By itself, the tapered headtube offers a noticeable advantage and the frame is still compatible with traditional 1-1/8” steerer tube fork with the purchase of a crown race adapter, but a tapered steerer fork serves up a significant increase in rough terrain tracking and stability.

Niner uses two different tapered headtube standards - Integrated and Internal.

INTEGRATED style headsets use angular contact bearings (ACB) drop right into the headtube with no cups to press. Fork swaps, routine cleaning and inspection or bearing replacement all take a fraction of the time they used to. Headtube/headset heights of our tapered headtube models were carefully selected to match the height of our traditional headtubes with a Chris King headset installed. Integrated headsets are the lightest available with the fewest parts.

Air 9 RDO, AIR 9 Carbon, AIR 9, ONE 9 and 1st generation JET 9, RIP 9 and WFO 9 frames use this headset standard and a headset IS included with these frames.

INTERNAL style headsets use low-profile cups that are pressed into the frame. This system gives the rider a much larger selection of headset brands, colors and types to choose from. This standard is also compatible with the Cane Creek Angleset, a unique headset design that allows the rider to change the head angle of the bike by .5, 1 or 1.5 degrees for the ultimate in customization.

JET 9, JET 9 RDO, RIP 9, WFO 9 and EMD 9 frames use this headset type and a headset is NOT included with these frames.
