Description

Niner AIR 9 Carbon XC

  • Reach for the stars with the Air 9 Carbon. All the advantages of the Air 9 family at a down to earth price.
  • The new AIR 9 Carbon benefits from the same decade of refinement and testing as does the Air 9 RDO, while fitting into a privateer friendly budget. Riders benefit from the same experience with only a small difference in weight.
  • Niner Carbon
  • The AIR 9 CARBON features the same sleek carbon frame design as the Air 9 RDO with a slightly simpler layup and material choice. Riders benefit from 10 years of hardtail development, engineering, process improvement and testing at a privateer friendly budget. In this newest version, you’ll find increased strength and durability along with the addition of a rear maxle for better descending and cornering.
  • Design:
  • The shapes of our Air 9 Carbon frame are heavily influenced by our long history in carbon fiber race frame design – in particular by our experience in building light, strong hardtails with velvet-smooth off road ride-quality. The rigid sides of our signature downtube and top tube shapes maximize torsional stiffness, with buttery smooth ride quality achieved via the flat sections on each tube, which act like leaf springs. Chainstay and seatstay shaping also benefits from our years of hardtail expertise – designed for ride quality via a carbon layup that also meets the most rigorous standards for mountain bike safety.
  • Performance Geometry:
  • Niner’s hardtail racing geometry is one that has garnered multiple national championships via the original Scandium Air 9, a Singlespeed World Championship via the Air 9 Carbon and World Cup podiums and national series race wins via the Air 9 RDO. Though time tested, Niner’s geometry has not remained stagnant - it has seen continual refinements to account for new technologies and to accommodate new fork travel lengths, while still meeting EN Safety standards for increased forces. The new Air 9 Carbon can safely accommodate forks with up to 120mm of travel, while maintaining the stable, precise steering and handling that lets your relax, be confident and focus on being fast.
