Niner Bikes has officially launched the next generation carbon fiber full-suspension bike called the Jet 9 RDO for 2012. After years of development in secrecy, the right time has finally come for the production of the bike, which seems to be the most sophisticated carbon full-suspension 29er on the market.

Available in colors Tang, Black Licorice, and Vana White, the frame features a direct-mount front derailleur and custom-valved Fox RP23 with silky smooth Kashima coating. Post mount disc-brake mounts saved weight savings and enhanced the looks.

For direct mount brakes, the bike has precise alloy hardware interfaces. Aside from the attractive looks of the 2012 Niner Jet 9 RDO, the bike also features CVA suspension. Compatible with 100mm or 120mm tapered forks, the frame features internal cable routing for front and rear derailleurs for a neat look.

A head angle slackened by a degree is one of the changes made in the 2011 Niner RIP 9 bike in order to enhance the capabilities of the RIP to tackle downhill trails.

The slacker head angle of the new RIP is of 70.5º (120mm fork) to 69.5º (140mm fork). Riders can achieve even steeper or slacker angles thanks to the upgrade to an aftermarket Cane Creek Angleset. This means a range from 72º (120mm fork) to 68º (140mm fork), making a very versatile frame, ideal for dialing in to best tackle local trails.

Other new features of the 2011 Niner RIP 9 bike include an overt 140mm fork endorsement, hot Tamale red color, and Zero Stack headset standard. These changes make this new version of the RIP bike a great buy….
