Niner's people are big fans of the road less traveled. Making independent choices is how they were founded and it's how they approach the future. It is with this philosophy that they created the RLT 9. Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel grinder? The answer is yes. Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, the RLT 9 is meant for you.
The RLT 9 Aluminum is constructed of hydroformed alloy, resulting in a frame that is light, efficient, and beautiful. This is paired with a custom gravel-tuned Niner carbon fork with rack mid mounts that seriously up its cargo carrying capacity. The frame features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker headtube angle. This creates the ideal geometry for a stable ride on the rockiest of roads, while still capable of winning a proper cross race. The RLT 9 utilizes modern standards—thru axles, flat-mount disc brakes, and a tapered headtube—that yield improved handling, speed control, and wheel stiffness. It's got internal shifter routings ports that are Di2 ready, offers single-speed compatibility with a Biocentric bottom bracket, and has plenty of mounting points for fenders and a rear rack. With room for up to 1.75-inch tires, there are few adventures the RLT 9 isn't ready for.
