RLT 9

‘Take the road less traveled’

RLT 9

 

Taking advantage of its knowledge and experience in the mountain bike world, Niner has gone one step further by making a bike designed for rolling fast and comfortable both on dirt roads as paved runways. The RLT (Road Less Traveled) is, as its name suggests, the ideal bike for travel through the less traveled roads and take any track when you want. Designed with a tube set similar to the proven AIR9, its hydroformed Aluminum alloy frame is light, efficient and beautiful. Slightly longer CS, lower BB and Slacker HT angle are ideal for a stable ride on the rockiest off roads. The standard PF30 bottom bracket shell offers both geared and singlespeed compatibility, and the frameset continues Niner award winning ways with a full carbon fork that shares DNA with the MTB version.

That, together with details like the forged dropouts -designed to reduce weight and integrate the low-profile post brake mount with the chainstay-, or the internal cable routing, greatly influences in the performance and aesthetics of a bike that comes to our catalog destined to revolutionize Gravel and cyclocross.

‘ROAD LESS TRAVELED’

Forge Grey – Orange

The RLT 9

We a Niner are big fans of the Road Less Traveled. Making independent choices is how we were founded and is how we approach the future. It is with this philosophy that we created our newest effort.

Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel ginder? YES. Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, it all depends on where you want to go. The RLT 9 doesn’t define you by where you have been, but encourages you to become someone new, to take the left turn and to leave the constraints of the yellow lines behind.

RLT 9
The first Niner designed for both 29 and 700C wheels.* Run narrower wheels and tires for brief journeys away from the beaten path, try something bigger for places where terrain is uncertain but adventure is guaranteed.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE – RLT 9 vs BSB 9?

Niner’s RLT and BSB offer different advantages to riders
The BSB is a born and bred cyclocross racing machine for riders seeking every advantage. The ultra light carbon frame is pared down to the basics to keep the weight down – even the paint is minimal. The steep headtube angle is specific to the tight corners and precision handling required to race at the highest level. The Bottom Bracket height is specific to crank length for better clearance on off camber course features and the very short 425mm chainstays are made for tight corners and sprint finishes. The Niner RDO Cyclocross Fork features a 15mm thru axle for best steering input.

The RLT 9 is designed as the Swiss Army Knife of off road drop bar bikes – commute on Monday, race on Saturday and make Sunday your day to wander the backroads. The hydroformed alloy frame is designed to reduce vibration and provide efficiency. The slacker headtube, lower bottom bracket and longer (435mm) chainstays combine for a stable machine perfect for long haul rides. The 1.75” tire clearance means that if you have the chops to ride drop bars on trail, you’ve got a bike that is capable. The Niner Carbon Gravel Grinder fork features QR drop outs and rack and fender mounts for maximum versatility.
