Niner designed the RLT 9 RDO to encourage diversion. Want to go hard and fast? How about long and adventurous? Please do. Need a change of pace, a break from the routine? Go ahead, give it a chance.
It’s hard to know where to start with this versatile beauty. The sleek, eye-catching design? The thoughtful benefits of NMF internal cable guide routing? The flat mount disk brakes for precise brake adjustments? Niner knows those things are important, but when it all comes down to it, none of those features matters if the ride quality isn’t great. So, when Niner set about designing the RLT 9 RDO they first talked to riders. The response was that gravel riders wanted a bike that could go the distance but perform when pushed. They wanted a bike that was stiff yet compliant. A bike that transferred power instantly but absorbed rough terrain. And, a bike that wouldn’t weigh them down up climbs. The RLT does all of those things and more. It's constructed using Niner’s RDO carbon compaction method for a lightweight frame that delivers comfort and dependability. The thin seat stays and top tube deliver all-day comfort while the massive down tube and chainstays keep power transfer in check. The RLT’s tried and true geometry is perfectly matched for competitive all-condition riding, multi-day adventures, and everything in between. Each fork leg features mid-blade mounting bolts that provide greater versatility for tacking on extra gear for longer adventures. And, full fender mounts improve the bike's all-season pedigree.
If you can think it on two wheels, the multi-tool that is the RLT might just be the bike for you. From dirt trails to gravel to asphalt, this bike takes it all in stride and you along with it. The RLT 9 RDO—redefining what gravel can be.
