It’s just you and the bike on race day. Niner’s BSB 9 is your one-up on the competition. Lightning-fast response, maximum power transfer and state-of-the-art construction combine to deliver even in the most adverse conditions. The BSB garners its race performance from a slew of Niner-specific technology.
The frame is a product of RDO Carbon Compaction, a technology utilizing rigid internal molds for tighter, more consistent compacted carbon layers, which means the frame can be made lighter-weight while maintaining Niner’s strength and durability standards. The BSB 9 RDO rides and feels like a proper cyclocross bike should, designed with a steep headtube angle for fast handling, a size and crank length-specific bottom bracket height for sure cornering, and short chainstays (425mm) for technical maneuvers. And, the frame is paired with Niner’s award winning RDO cyclocross fork, which provides the off-road ride quality riders want in their race bike. A frameset designed to race is surely going to get punished, but you needn’t worry, because Niner’s robust R&D program and hours of ride testing make them confident that the BSB 9 will exceed your expectations, and the BSB 9 comes with their C5 warranty (five year) to put your mind at ease.
Cyclocross-specific design elements are found throughout the BSB 9 RDO. Cyclocross demands ergonomic frame shapes – the bike must be easy to lift, carry and shoulder. Riders will find friendly flats, comfortable shoulder positioning and thoughtful placement of cables to aid in the best barrier technique. The front triangle is free of cable guides, and external rear brake routing on the side of the down tube keeps everything out of the way when shouldering. Full length housing is used for clean, crisp shifting race after muddy race, and internal routing with large access windows makes for easy maintenance and simple Di2 routing. A post-mount rear brake helps to prevent brake-heel interference. All frame sizes accommodate two water bottle mounts so you’re ready for any race conditions even if the hand-up crew is slacking.
The BSB 9 RDO 3-Star marries the incredible BSB frameset with a SRAM Rival 22 parts group for a seamless connection between you and your controls. The Rival hydraulic disc brakes modulate precisely in dust, mud, snow, and anything else you'll find on a cyclocross course to give you the confidence to push hard right up to every corner and barrier. And, to provide the means for the charge, the BSB's Rival drivetrain delivers shifting precision matched only by its steadfast longevity, making this wide-range 2 x 11-speed drivetrain an excellent choice for brutal cyclocross conditions. Free yourself to focus on speed and technique, not fussing over your gear, and achieve what you've been training for all summer.
