Niner Jet 9 RDO Frameset
The newest incarnation of the JET 9 RDO is Niner’s flagship cross country full suspension frame, choice of the CLIF MTB and Cyclocross Team and Team Backcountry.com. At 100mm of travel, this is the full suspension bike most likely to be found in MTB stage races, in epic endurance races and on the podium. For this newest incarnation, we’ve incorporated a new RDO carbon layup, reduced the weight, added an RS1 fork option and pushed the aesthetics to reflect the new Niner racing program.
New RDO Carbon Compaction System
Niner carbon comes with a guarantee of strength, quality and technical expertise. To improve on a frame that has already surpassed rigorous testing parameters, we had to start at the very core, via Niner’s new RDO Carbon Compaction System. Now used throughout the Niner carbon lineup, this CCS utilizes rigid internal molds and results in tighter, more consistent compaction of the carbon layers, yielding increased precision in wall thickness and significantly reduced resin pooling in the final product, allowing us to aim for better ride tuning, increased strength and durability along with the weight reduction that results from a more efficient process. In the Jet 9 RDO, this new system has resulted in a weight reduction of 70 grams while maintaining all standards for strength, stiffness and durability.
