Niner Bikes has unveiled two newly redesigned bikes for 2012, one of which is the AIR 9. The major change seen in the bike is its hydroformed tubes all over. Instead of Scandium, the bike uses a new alloy based on the 6000 series, which gives the AIR 9 a lot of benefits.
By using hydroformed tubes, Niner was able to achieve more intricate shapes and butting. This means more freedom in designing, or a better design. The strength and stiffness of the bike’s frame are increased while reducing its weight. With Scandium, these excellent features cannot be achieved.
With a lightweight and flexible frame, the 2012 Niner Bikes AIR 9 Bike guarantees an excellent ride quality. Speed is also enhanced making the bike an ideal machine for races. Included in the latest details of the bike are the PressFit 30 bottom bracket and the tapered steer tube compatible head tube.
