More capable and versatile than ever before, the all-new RIP RDO 29 3-Star Complete Mountain Bike from Niner might lose 10mm of its rear travel, however, this vastly improves its pedaling and climbing ability, while its significant geometry updates more than makeup for the travel reduction and still make this bike a beast while descending steep, blown-out trails. While the old RIP had a dual wheel size persona, the new RIPs are frames dedicated to each wheel size. This allows Niner to optimize the frame for each wheel size by dialing in the suspension kinematics and geometry specifically for each size eliminating compromises. Either way, you’re getting 140mm of CVA rear travel that’s sensitive off the top and supportive in the mid-stroke paired with 150mm of fork travel and clearance for 2.6-inch tires with room for mud. This is the longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever created, however, with the inclusion of its adjustable, geometry via flip chips at the seat stay pivots, a Niner first, you can make adjustments as needed for your terrain and riding style.
