You ride the road less traveled. Niner’s RLT 9 Steel was purpose-built for adventure. Such two-wheeled adventure calls for a well-engineered frame made of the finest materials with reliable and highly-functional components capable of keeping you moving. Niner knows this, which is why they blended legendary Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics, utilizing thru-axles and a tapered head tube to deliver the time-tested durability and ride quality of steel with the performance advantages offered by cutting-edge design. The tapered head tube pairs with a gravel-tuned carbon Niner fork that is both stiff and strong while damping the chatter from pocked roads and stones, all while nonchalantly carrying you and your gear. And, you will fear no grade, because gearing options are nearly limitless. The RLT 9 can accommodate a double or triple chainring, or just a single ring, if simplicity is your thing.
To maximize comfort during extended hours in the saddle, the supple steel is beautifully welded with All-Day Adventure-Tuned Geometry that features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube angle than many bikes often use for adventure riding. This means you get a ride that is more stable, rides more smoothly, and carries loads with pleasure—exactly what you’ve been looking for in an adventure bike. And, of course, the RLT 9 offers front and rear rack braze-ons, as well as three water bottle mounts to facilitate all your gear-hauling needs with myriad options to suit person and purpose.
The RLT 9 Steel 5-Star—the "spare no expense" RLT 9 build—is filled with top of the line components for the cycling connoisseur or athlete who refuses to compromise. Shimano's incredible Ultegra Di2 drivetrain provides a customizable shifting experience that cannot be adequately described in words. Smiles: yes, words: no. Your Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes keep those smiles a-coming as you deftly control your steed and its precious cargo into curves and down fast and loose grades. Niner’s carbon CX wheels ensure low weight, quick acceleration, and precision tracking. And, Niner threw in a carbon Thomson handlebar and their RDO carbon seatpost to deliver just the right amount of vibration damping so you are comfortably in control whether your ride lasts an hour or a month.
