2017 Niner RIP 9 RDO 27.5+ 5-Star Eagle X01 Complete Mountain Bike

 

The new RIP 9’s CVA suspension design is also unchanged, but it allows that design to play with 25mm more travel. This brings it up to 150mm—another parallel to the WFO—and optimizes it for descending fast in hairy terrain while keeping it surprisingly responsive when you get on the gas. Unlike other designs, CVA is optimized for the increased bottom bracket drop inherent in 29ers, so it’s well suited to the similar dimensions of a 27.5+ platform. It tends to ride high in the travel with a controlled mid-stroke that balances pedal input and suspension travel, keeping it stable through rock gardens and snappy when you get on the pedals. It also jumps incredibly well; this is one all-mountain machine that’s very happy when it’s airborne.

The frame’s finishing details are everything you’d expect from the obsessive developers at Niner, and our favorite new addition is—far and away—the inclusion of a BSA threaded bottom bracket. PressFit shells may be lighter and more convenient, but the exact tolerances of a CNC-machined thread are unmatchable by today’s composite technology. The threading means bearing cups install perfectly, reducing wear over time and eliminating the creaks and groans that so often accompany PressFit models. Vulnerable frame bits are girded with titanium protection plates, and the frame also includes integrated batter storage in case you get the urge for electro shifting. As a 27.5+ build, the RIP 9 can clear 3in tires; if you’d prefer to restore order to the universe and run it as a 29er, it’ll accommodate 2.5in tires.

 

  • Niner commits wagon-wheel heresy with its first gen of 27.5+ models
  • Six inches of CVA travel rivals Niner’s WFO for deep cushion
  • Updated geometry climbs faster and descends harder
  • RDO carbon lay-up and compaction is lighter and stiffer than non-RDO
  • Compatible with electronic drivetrain routing and battery storage
  • Plush tires add cushion for enduro shredfests and bikepacking epics
  • SRAM Eagle adds a 50t bailout cog to your arsenal
  • ENVE’s stiff, high-volume wheels let plump tires sit fatter
