Alu, RDO and now also in Carbon. This model matches a full carbon front triangle to an aluminum rear, which packages the all-around trail capability of the highly touted RIP 9 family into a frame that performs as well as it looks.
The RIP 9 Carbon utilizes the same carbon linkage and oversized Angular Contact Bearing pivots and trail specific geometry as the RIP 9 RDO. Riders piloting the RIP 9 Carbon will be continually searching for alternate lines to challenge their skills. And trails become smoother, faster, and more fun, both up and down. And depending on whether you choose the Pro version or the Race one, the performance will be very good or even better.
