Take a gander at the brand new 2020 Niner RIP 9 27.5”. Yes, you read that right, 27.5! Niner’s long-travel trail slayer is now available in 27.5” wheels. Don’t worry though, the new frame has been specifically designed around the smaller wheels. They took a no-compromise approach. The 2020 Niner is longer, slacker, and lower than any bike Niner has ever made, and it even features a geometry flip chip if you want to get extra low (65-degree HA in low setting). Compared to the previous generation, the 2020 model also has a wider and stiffer rib cage main triangle for precise handling, clearance for 2.6” tires, and a refined suspension curve for a sensitive early stroke and supportive mid-stroke. Also, if you like to tinker on your own bike, you’ll love how the 2020 RIP 9 has full sleeve internal cable guides, factory-installed frame protection, and durable long-lasting Enduro Max Black Oxide pivot bearings.

Long travel bikes are becoming the norm in the mountain biking world and there is a good reason for it. Advancements in suspension technology have made it so long travel mountain bikes can descend smoothly and still climb efficiently. The 2020 RIP 9 is here to sit upon the throne as the king of the mountain. It features an RDO carbon frame which is both lightweight and incredibly durable and perfect for the trails. The frame features Niner’s CVA, or Constant Varying Arc, suspension design which lets you climb efficiently and descend smoothly. It features Boost hub spacing on the front and rear that delivers a stiffer and more predictable ride.

The 4-Star version of the Niner RIP 9 RDO comes with a Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain with 10-51 tooth gearing so you can ride up and down any terrain. The Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes provide the confidence-inspiring stopping power you need for any descent and a Fox 36 Factory Float fork and Fox Factory Float DPX2 rear shock offer industry leading suspension performance. DT-Swiss provides the wheelset with their M1900 Spline wheels which provide a tubeless ready setup so you can run lower tire pressures for increased traction and a smoother ride. If you’re looking for the ultimate mountain bike, then you’ll love the 2020 Niner RIP 9.
