Niner RLT Aluminum


We a Niner are big fans of the Road Less Traveled. Making independent choices is how we were founded and is how we approach the future. It is with this philosophy that we created our newest effort.

Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel ginder? YES. Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, it all depends on where you want to go. The RLT 9 doesn’t define you by where you have been, but encourages you to become someone new, to take the left turn and to leave the constraints of the yellow lines behind.

The RLT 9 is designed as the Swiss Army Knife of off road drop bar bikes – commute on Monday, race on Saturday and make Sunday your day to wander the backroads. The hydroformed alloy frame is designed to reduce vibration and provide efficiency. The slacker headtube, lower bottom bracket and longer (435mm) chainstays combine for a stable machine perfect for long haul rides. The 1.75” tire clearance means that if you have the chops to ride drop bars on trail, you’ve got a bike that is capable. The Niner Carbon Gravel Grinder fork features rack and fender mounts for maximum versatility.
