PRODUCT SUMMARY
  • The reputation of the R.I.P. 9 is unassailable – in the six years since its introduction it has helped define the new-school genre of trail ripper both with riders and the cycling press. So how can it be improved? Keep the attitude, boost performance, shed unwanted weight and build on the legend.
  • Tapered steerer tube technology at the head tube. 1.125-1.5" taper head tube uses "inset" or "zero stack" style headsets (44mm upper, 56mm lower) (headset not included) Use: Cane Creek ZS44/28.6 | ZS56/40
  • Hydroformed top tube and down tube provides excellent strength to weight
  • Over 10 forged or extruded parts on the RIP 9 all went through a painstaking process of FEA, mechanical stress tests and real world testing to be as light and as strong as possible.
  • Increased stiffness everywhere without a weight penalty.
  • Niner RIP 9 geometry is designed to work with 120 - 140mm travel forks.
  • 142mm x 12mm TA Maxle
  • Max Tire Size: 2.4" (Tire sizes vary per brand and some tires may not fit.)

  • 4.5" of Niner CVA suspension design provides very smooth, efficient, balanced, and an active feel to this frame - the perfect 120mm all mountain experience
