Product Description

2017 Niner RKT 9 RDO 3-Star XT 1x Complete Mountain Bike

 

If you've ever caught yourself daydreaming deeply about the perfect bike on your way home from a ride, building one in your mind from the ground up with XC energy, a spirited disposition, but the ability to crush lines most assume are off-limits for the XC set, you're in luck. Sometimes, dreams do come true. As an plush XC bike with a podium-chasing attitude, the RKT 9 RDO 3-Star XT is a shining example of what pushing the limits of XC looks like. Let us clarify. In the case of the RKT 9, that means combining an energetic carbon frame, 120mm of squish for technical race courses or weekend exploration, and the proven efficiency of Boost spacing. Whether you're venturing onto shady, root-encrusted trails or putting it all on the line on raceday, trust the RKT 9's disarmingly playful attitude to match your enthusiasm at every turn.

The Queen of Pain herself, known simply as Ms. Rusch off-trail, has summarized the RKT 9 RDO as the answer to her dreams, which means that Niner's goal of blending a twitchy race bike with a fearless bruiser of a trail beast wasn't too much of reach. On the contrary, the RKT 9 RDO fulfills that description uncannily well, using a short head tube and longer top tube to provide line cleaning confidence up front, and Boost spacing with the lowest standover height in Niner's line for a boundless supply of snappy aggression in the rear. Boost spacing allowed Niner to chop the chainstays to a stubby 439mm, which when paired with that low standover height, results in agile cornering and power-transferring stiffness. When the opportunity to spend a weekend chasing your armor-clad pals and their 5-inch monsters around rugged singletrack presents itself, one look at the RKT 9 RDO will be enough to tell you the answer is yes.

Though geometry is a big part of the RKT 9 RDO's story, its carbon frame cannot be overlooked. Niner uses its RDO Carbon Compaction System (CCS) to ensure details like wall thickness and material distribution are flawless, eliminating unnecessary weight and structural imperfections like resin pooling. In terms of suspension, Niner fine-tuned its own CVA linkage was specifically for a low-travel XC bike for the RKT 9 RDO, so it encourages speed above all else. It maintains a firm, responsive pedaling platform even when you throw the shock open entirely, resisting harsh bottom-outs when you're surprised by a steep uphill roller on an otherwise chunky, enduro-leaning descent. Back all of that up with Shimano's second-from-the-top XT one-by drivetrain, and you're going to have a hard time getting much of anything done off-trail this season.
