AIR 9 CARBON

‘Unbeatable compromise’

AIR 9 CARBON

 

Reach for the stars with the Air 9 Carbon. All the advantages of the Air 9 family at a down to earth price. The new AIR 9 Carbon benefits from the same decade of refinement and testing as does the Air 9 RDO, while fitting into a privateer friendly budget. Riders benefit from the same experience with only a small difference in weight.

The AIR 9 CARBON features the same sleek carbon frame design as the Air 9 RDO with a slightly simpler layup and material choice. Riders benefit from 10 years of hardtail development, engineering, process improvement and testing at a privateer friendly budget. In this newest version, you’ll find increased strength and durability along with the addition of a rear maxle for better descending and cornering.

REFINED DESIGN

The Air 9 Carbon is now a dedicated geared racing bike with trickle-down RDO features throughout, including reduced diameters and trimmed tube profiles, smaller junctions, molded carbon headset races and a carbon BB shell. Additionally, the rear brake mount is now tucked inside the curving stays to distribute twisting forces evenly, permitting smaller caliper mounts

TAPERED HEADTUBE
The benefits of a tapered headtube aren’t just for riders of long travel bikes. XC racers and riders also see significant advantages, which is why we incorporate the technology in all our new frames. By using tapered steerer suspension forks, we create the stiffest front end possible – leading to increased steering precision as you carve a corner and descend toward the finish line. The integrated headset used in the Air 9 Carbon is light and simple. Installation, cleaning and maintenance take seconds rather than minutes, a boon to anyone who queues up at the starting line without a team mechanic.

PF30 BOTTOM BRACKET
There are several BB standards to choose from – for our dedicated geared only race bikes we like PF30. It’s compatible with any BB30 crankset (as well as standard threaded BB systems, with an adapter) and the bearing cups are delightfully easy to install. The oversized 30mm spindle is light and resists the torque of even the mighti¬est Ninerds. Oversized bearings spin longer and smoother between overhauls. The plastic cups of the PF30 BB system don’t require a machined aluminum bottom bracket shell insert, allowing a minimalist carbon construction.

INTERNAL SHIFTER ROUTING
Headbadge routing is designed for full-length housing, simplifies cable changes and protects cables from the elements.

NINER HARDTAIL GEOMETRY
As verified over and over again in independent reviews, Niner has hardtail 29er geometry dialed. Climbing or descending, the geometry of the Air 9 Carbon is tuned to for great handling and rider positioning. The Air 9 Carbon is intended for 80-100mm forks, allowing you to fine tune your ride.
