Niner RIP 9 Carbon 3-Star XT Add to MyBests

Expert Review

The Niner brand is built on a fierce passion, and that fire is evident with every bike in their stable. The RIP 9 is a versatile trail bike with a geometry designed to put the rider in an ideal position to glean confidence no matter the trail type, and matched with the CVA Suspension, the RIP is efficient on the climbs and welcomes all manner of challenges on the way down.

Niner utilizes a carbon front triangle and aluminum rear to bring the dreamy feel of a carbon ride to a wider range of riders, with a star-studded cast of components. 140mm of travel on the Rockshox Pike fork absorbs the hits, a super stiff front end holds a superb track through sketchy technical sections, and a Shimano XT component package drives the bike with trail-proven performance.

Killer perks like the Reverb dropper post, carbon bar, and Niner custom saddle come standard on the RIP, rounding out a bike you can count on. The RIP line also includes 1, 2, and 4-Star models with different frame setups and component builds available at corresponding price points.Rating: 5/5
