Video: Niner ROS 9 and New JET 9

29er All Mountain Trail Enduro

As a follow-up to the previous product introduction on the ROS 9, we have this video of some of the highlights of the all new ROS 9 from Niner Bikes. As previously stated, the “rally 29er hardtail” market is heating up and we expect the simplicity, fun and value will appeal to more and more riders who try them. Also highlighted here is the all new Niner JET 9. The JET 9 gets the same airformed tubing that was first shown with the updated RIP 9. The new JET 9 also gets more travel (100mm, was 80mm) and is lighter than the previous version.

YouTube Preview Image Video: Barrett from Niner gives us the highlights of the all new ROS 9 rally 29er hardtail and the newly redesigned JET 9 with air formed tubing.

Niner JET 9 - CVA suspension

For those seeking the technical advantages of 29” wheels combined with pedaling efficiency across all chainring combinations (not just the middle ring), CVA™ is the front-runner. The result? A faster, smoother ride up and down the trail.
