RIP RDO 29er 5-Star SRAM X01 Eagle Mountain Bike (2021)

Description

Niner Bike’s reimagined 140mm-travel trail bike. The 5-Star SRAM X01 Eagle kit is a perfect partner for Niner’s most popular trail bike. Roll lighter and faster, go farther and stay out longer on DT Swiss XMC 1501 SPLINE 30 carbon wheels and premium SRAM components.

King of The Mountain – The Trail Taming RIP 9 RDO

For more than a decade, the RIP 9 RDO trail bike has ruled Niner’s off-road lineup. For 2019, this flagship bike evolves again. Niner’s do-it-all trail bike hits the sweet spot with 140mm of consistent, controlled CVA suspension, progressive and adjustable geometry, and increased frame stiffness. Plus it’s got more standover for 170mm dropper posts, longer reach, and a shorter head tube. More versatile and capable than ever before, reach for your RIP to tackle any trail.

A Little Less Travel, and a LOT More Bike

The new RIP 9 RDO sports 140mm of CVA suspension on a light, stiff, strong RDO carbon frame. With a 150mm travel FOX 36 fork up front, a 66-degree head tube angle, and a 75.8-degree seat tube angle, they’re hitting the sweet spot of efficiency and capability. Niner also built in more standover clearance and a shorter seat tube to accommodate 170mm dropper posts.

By adding new Rib Cage struts across the front triangle, flattening the top and down tubes, widening the main rocker link pivot, and beefing up the rear triangle, the entire bike is stiffer from front to back. The struts reduce bottom bracket deflection while keeping the upper portion of the front triangle supple and compliant. And the wide, flat surfaces found on Niner’s top and downtube help to absorb frontal impacts and vibrations while resisting deflection (twisting) under torsional load.

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 the steep 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, low BB, 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 to 65, and lowering the bottom bracket 7mm, the RIP transforms into a whole new bike that’s perfect for chairlift days, shuttle sessions and back country excursions with long, rowdy descents.

CVA Suspension

Niner’s Constantly Varying Arc, or CVA™, is built to be supple yet stable, controlling unwanted suspension movement with calibrated anti-squat, yet remaining active while climbing and descending. Courtesy of a new higher overall leverage ratio, starting off at 3.0 and ending right around 2.3 for an average of 2.55, off the top it’s easier to set the shock in motion and overcome static friction. It’s also more supportive in the midstroke, holding the rider higher up in travel.

Going down, it’s consistent and controlled. With no need for heavy compression damping to control unwanted movement, CVA is tuned for consistent, confidence-inspiring behavior on descents. It’s perfectly balanced, so the result is stable yet supple, active, ground-hugging traction in every situation – cranking uphill, ripping downhill, and everywhere in between.

RDO Carbon Fiber

Niner starts with the best grades of raw carbon layered precisely according to the stress points on the frame structure. In construction, the process employs rigid internal molds and results in tighter, more consistent compaction of the carbon fabric. The result? Increased precision in wall thickness and reduced resin pooling in the final product. Niner can build more elaborate structures with better ride tuning, increased strength, outstanding durability, and less weight.
