The JET 9 anchors the [R]Evolution of Niner’s trail bikes. Knowing that technologies and rider expectations have changed over the years, they’ve put a lot of time, energy, and research into creating the most versatile and fun-to-ride full suspension mountain bike money can buy. The JET alloy complete bike is a great daily driver with the durability and handling that will have riders grinning every time they hit the trail. Niner is building these with 29-inch wheels and SRAM NX drivetrains to satisfy the demand for a super-efficient, mid-travel trail bike. The JET 9 features boost spacing for optimum power transfer and wheel stiffness, internal or external dropper post routing, and a threaded bottom bracket for ease of maintenance. With Niner’s [R]Evolution geometry at its core as well as 29-inch or 27.5-inch plus compatibility, the JET 9 is a perfect mid-travel trail bike for today's aggressive trail riding.
The JET 9 anchors the [R]Evolution of Niner’s trail bikes. Knowing that technologies and rider expectations have changed over the years, they’ve put a lot of time, energy, and research into creating the most versatile and fun-to-ride full suspension mountain bike money can buy. The JET 9 is constructed using RDO Carbon Compaction to produce the ultimate lightweight trail-worthy machine. It features Niner’s patented CVA suspension design, delivering 120mm of plush, efficient rear travel, and is designed around a maximum 140mm travel fork. The JET 9’s geometry has been revised and optimized for modern trail riding, with overall dimensions that lean toward longer reach on the frames paired with shorter stem lengths for quicker steering input. Likewise, the chainstays have been shortened down to 434mm for fast acceleration and some playful pop. But to keep the overall feel of the bike well rounded and to ensure efficient climbing and pedaling, Niner steepened the seat tube angle, which keeps you centered in the bike and able to stay on top of your gear when you're putting down the power. The JET 9’s Constant Varying Arc (CVA) suspension platform Niner engineered and patented years ago remains the linchpin for their full suspension bikes and really gives the JET its legs. But how can this technology keep pace with the ever-changing standards in today's mountain bike world? Unlike so many suspension systems out there that are based on optimal chainring-to-pivot point configurations, CVA relies on counteracting linkage forces that result in the only outlet for pedal force turning the rear wheel, which is exactly what you want. Put simply, CVA’s efficiency can help any rider go farther, faster and have more fun. The JET 9 features boost spacing for optimum power transfer and wheel stiffness, internal dropper post routing for clean frame lines clean, and a threaded bottom bracket for ease of maintenance. With Niner’s [R]Evolution geometry at its core as well as 29-inch or 27.5-inch plus compatibility, the JET 9 is a perfect mid-travel trail bike for today's aggressive trail riding. - SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - Niner alloy wheels - Maxxis Rekon tires
The RIP 9 takes its place as the king of the mountain and Niner's most capable trail bike. A product of their [R]Evolution design, the RIP takes a fresh outlook on what a long travel trail bike can and should do. It's the go-to for backcountry epics and big terrain when you need every arrow in the quiver. Built with 150mm of remarkably versatile CVA suspension on a lightweight frame, the RIP gives you all the traction, control, and fun that used to be the domain of big, all mountain crushers, but without the extra pounds. Focusing first on the frame, the critical feature is the [R]Evolution geometry that Niner tested, evaluated and carefully selected. The roomy cockpit has a comfortable reach for short stem lengths, giving you quick handling and plenty of maneuverability to go mobbing through rock gardens and barreling big berms. The steep seat angle gets you centered in the bike and pairs nicely with the short 439mm chainstay length for better pedaling efficiency than anyone deserves from a long legged trail bike. And of course the compact rear allows you to square off turns and play your way down the trail. The frame’s boost spacing increases wheel stiffness and adds compatibility with 29-inch or 27.5-inch plus tires. Dropper post setup is a breeze with internal or external routing options, and the bottom bracket features ISCG 05 mounts for running a chain guide. With the benefits of a full carbon frame, loads of plush travel, and a geometry optimized for modern trail riding, the RIP 9 handles everything you throw at it. - SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - Niner Alloy wheels - KS LEV Si dropper post
We’ve gone and done it. We built the most badass non-niner Niner ever made. Why didn’t we just make a 29er that also fits 27.5-inch wheels? Well because we aren’t willing to compromise. If we’re going to do something so big (or should we say, small?) and something so contrary to our brand history, damnit, we’re doing it the right way. There are compromises in making frames to fit multiple wheel sizes and we just weren’t willing to do that. Why the small wheels, after a decade-long commitment to 29ers? Riders have told us that they love the stable yet supple, consistent and controlled behavior of our CVA suspension. They love the brand. They love the designs. But they want more standover, less rotating weight, and the fast handling, quick draw agility of 27.5ers. We’ve applied every bit of our big-wheel know how to this new RIP. And after riding it, we’re so glad we expanded our minds (and our rides) to include the 29er’s more playful little brother. Hit the trail, minus the hit to your wallet. Thanks to SRAM’s NX Eagle drivetrain, we bring every ounce of RIP 9 RDO performance to an affordable price level. Time to stop? SRAM Level brakes are there for you. - FOX 36 Rhythm Grip EVOL, 160mm - FOX Float DPX2 Performance EVOL rear shock - SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - SRAM Level brakes
