Last year, Blackburn Ranger Brian Ohlen headed down the Pacific coast on a bike searching for Steelhead along the way. He had a pretty awe-inspiring adventure. “River”, a celebration of water, public lands, and riding your bike, launches Sept. 12th. Watch the teaser now.Posted by Niner Bikes on Tuesday, 29 August 2017
RLT 9 Steel
While other frame materials fall in and out of favor, steel stands the test of time. Finely constructed steel frames, crafted and welded by the best builders, have continued to be the benchmark other materials measure themselves against. The RLT9 Steel delivers a flawless synthesis of form and function into a frame that makes every ride open for adventure. From mounting panniers and racks for camping to traveling the gravel road that curves out of sight, the RLT9 is more than capable for the open road.
You ride the road less traveled. Adventure calls for a well-engineered frame with technology capable of keeping you moving. The Niner RLT9 is where performance, durability, and ride quality meet. Adventure awaits.
The RLT 9 Steel was purpose built for adventure. Every consideration was made with convenience and compatibility in mind. We’ve blended the historic Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics utilizing thru-axle technology and a tapered steel headtube. To conquer any and all terrain, the RLT9 can accommodate either a double or triple chainring. If simplicity is your thing, a single ring is an option.
The collaboration of superior craftsmanship and the finest materials with contemporary design fine tunes the ride quality while producing a strong and resilient frame. Supple and trustworthy 853 tubing absorbs road chatter, yet still gives you feedback. There is no “dead” feeling or jarring bumps. Just a supple, comfortable ride that shifts your focus from tracking the miles to remembering the moments.
Classic lines and modern functionality elegantly converge into a frame that is characteristically Niner. The eloquently TIG welded Reynolds 853 tubing showcases precision, strength and durability. The gravel tuned carbon fork is designed for all day adventure and comfort on any road surface.
