Watch: The Niner’s Rip 9 RDO In Action
RIP 9 RDO
All hail the new King of the Mountain. Introducing the totally redesigned #RIP9RDO. Available in 29in and 27.5. A new reign has begun.
The longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever made
Thanks to the flip chip, two different geometries mean two bikes in one. The high mode geo is perfect for everyday trail riding. This bike launches uphill and over technical terrain, thanks to CVA suspension and a steep, 75.8-degree seat tube angle. When you’re all out of breath, turn around and point it down. Drop-in with confidence thanks to the long reach and slack, 66-degree head tube angle.
The RIP’s low mode brings out its rock star, party down personality. By slacking out the head angle a full degree and lowering the bottom bracket 7mm, the RIP transforms into a whole new bike that’s perfect for chairlift days, shuttle sessions and backcountry excursions with long, rowdy descents.
We also built in more standover clearance and a shorter seat tube to accommodate 170mm dropper posts.
