Product Description
RKT 9 RDO Mountain Bike Frame by Niner
With trail bikes seeing longer and slacker geometry, even XC bikes are feeling the repercussions of these changes, with head tube angles and reach measurements approaching what was considered the all-mountain realm only a few years ago. We get it, it helps improve stability on the descents, but some of us still want a purebred race steed. Something focused on speed, able to sprint up climbs like a hardtail with geometry focused on precision. Thankfully Niner's RKT 9 RDO Mountain Bike Frame caters to the cross country purists among us with true XC geometry and a suspension platform that focuses on efficiency while still maintaining composure on rough trails.The RKT 9 RDO delivers 3. 5in of travel through Niner's proven CVA suspension platform. The dual links work together to provide a firm platform that allows pedal forces to operate independently of rear wheel travel, limiting the amount of energy the suspension robs from your pedaling efforts. The engineers at Niner optimized the linkage to produce the lightest, stiffest version of CVA to date, with high-quality Enduro Max bearings delivering low-friction and outstanding longevity. The result is a bike that rockets up rocky, root-infested climbs with ease, yet employs just enough travel to soften the blows from square-edged hits and harder impacts on the descents. The frame is built using Niner's RDO Carbon Compaction System. CCS uses internal molds during curing that allow exact control over wall thickness and material distribution, shedding excess weight while eliminating structural imperfections like resin pooling. The frame is light, but resilient enough to withstand the punishment of all-day epic rides on rough terrain. The geometry is XC-race focused, employing a steeper 70-degree head tube angle and a shorter head tube to create an aggressive position ready to cover ground as quickly as possible. The reach and wheelbase are long enough for stability at speed, but not uber-long like some of the other "XC...

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.
