Since its introduction over a decade ago, Niner's RIP 9 completely changed the landscape of all mountain riding and eliminated any preconceived notions of how big travel bikes with big wheels were supposed to ride. Fast forward to today and this all-new 3rd generation frame is here and ready to rock the trails with plenty of new features like Rib Cage construction for added stiffness, extra standover height and room for longer dropper posts, a high/low flip chip adjustable geometry, and 140mm of re-tuned CVA suspension.

This is the longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever created, however, with the inclusion of its adjustable geometry via flip chips at the seatstay pivots, a Niner first, you can make adjustments as needed for your terrain and riding style. The high mode geometry is perfect for tamer trails and daily riding. You'll quickly appreciate the climbing and pedaling efficiency of its steeper 75. 8-degree seat tube angle and reworked CVA suspension platform. On the way down, you can shred with confidence given its longer reach, slack 66-degree head tube angle, and 44mm reduced offset fork. If you have some shuttling or bike park laps on the docket, its low mode brings out even more aggression by slacking out the head angle by a full degree (65-de...

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.
