Niner’s new Jet 9 RDO is the first carbon fiber full-suspension bike from the company known for 29ers. It’s compatible with 100-120mm tapered forks in the front and boasts 100mm of Kashima-coated, custom-valved Fox RP23 in the rear. All cables slide through the carbon monocoque frame and all linkages are stuffed with Enduro sealed bearings. That linkage supports the patented Constantly Varying Arc (CVA) suspension system that was designed specifically for 29ers.
Retail price on the frame is $2,599, and build kits are available too.
Update: Check back later this week for complete details and a first ride report!
