JET 9 RDO 29 1-Star NX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Niner
Niner took what we knew of the original Jet 9 and completely redesigned it sufficiently enough that it went from a cross country race bike to a way more capable trail machine. The JET 9 RDO 29 1-Star NX Complete Mountain Bike not only added more travel but modernized the geometry for composed descending at speed and all-day pedaling on more aggressive trails. The reach is longer, the seattube is steeper, and the headtube is slacker. Those changes make the bike more fun to ride in almost every situation. Whether its technical climbs, chunky descents, or flowing in fast, buff singletrack, the Jet 9 RDO handles it all in stride. This particular build receives SRAM's value packed NX group, KS Lev dropper post, and FOX suspension.Boost rear spacing was instrumental in allowing Niner to alter the geometry and align it with numbers seen on modern trail bikes. Chainstays got wider for clearance and saw 21mm hacked from them so the handling is quick and tight trails are a breeze. The steeper seat tube angle also contributes to the quick handling and helps the pedaling in steep terrain. Your position is now more on top of the pedals putting you in a better attack position and the KS dropper post gets the saddle out of the way making the bike easy to rally on the way down.The updated headtube angle sees a 6 as a starting number for the first time on a Jet at 67. 5-degrees. This hits the sweet spot of high speed stability and keeps it agile enough that the bike doesn't have to be ridden wide open all the time for it to feel alive. The increased reach and short stem increases the bikes responsiveness without losing weight on the front wheel so you don't lose traction in the turns. The Jet 9 continues the nimble handling mantra of Niner's acclaimed geometry while now able to tackle a whole new breed of trails, or your older ones at a higher rate of speed.Thankfully, Niner's Race Day Optimized (RDO) construction process remains unchanged. This is a great, as Niner's carbon p...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
