Product Details

2016 Niner AIR 9 Carbon 2-Star GX1

The stable and successful middle child in Niner’s AIR 9 family, the AIR 9 Carbon delivers race-bred speed and handling while leaving some cash in your pocket to buy dinner for the friends you embarrassed on race day. Using a slightly simpler carbon layup and material, the AIR 9 Carbon benefits from the same extensive refinement and testing that went into the AIR 9 RDO. The result is a slight difference in weight but the same fast, responsive ride you expect from Niner. The rigid sides of the down and top tubes maximize torsional stiffness, while the flat sections on each tube act as leaf springs for a buttery-smooth ride. Combine these elements with Niner’s proven 29er geometry, and you have a race machine that’s ready for the abuse of everyday riding.

The AIR 9 Carbon 2-Star brings you toe to toe with your comfort zone, then rips over the line and carries you to what lies beyond. To make sure you get there, Niner installed a RockShox Reba RL Air fork to dutifully soak up 120mm of chunder and firmly stick the fast-rolling, tenacious Maxxis Ikon tires to your line of choice. SRAM delivers a streamlined, thorough range of gears in a precise-shifting GX1 drivetrain so you can find the gear you need to spin up any climb. SRAM’s DB5 hydraulic disc brakes offer easy modulation, which translates into greater speed, longer acceleration zones, and less momentum loss. Choose the 2-Star build for a no-nonsense hardtail with a thoroughbred lineage.
