Here’s the RIP RDO in its new camo colorway blending with bamboo in Jamaica.

With spring fast approaching it’s time for a little spring cleaning to freshen things up a bit. Niner is on it with fresh and clean new frame colors for the Jet 9 RDO trail bike, RIP 9 RDO enduro steed, and RLT 9 RDO and RLT 9 Steel for gravel and cyclocross.

To help keep that fresh feeling lasting longer, Niner also incorporated new internal cable guides on the JET RDO and RIP RDO to make the installation of new cable housings a breeze and keep you out of the cable routing funk.

Internal cable guides make running cable housings through the frame a simple task and can help quiet cable slap.

This refresh may seem minor, but with the recent purchase of Niner bikes by UWHK Limited complete, it’s back to business as usual but with a few tweaks. Niner will still focus on serving its customers with parts and warranties. Moving forward with new talent and R&D equipment, plus increased financial backing, expect Niner to remain competitive and relevant.

We’re looking forward to the Sea Otter Classic where they have hinted at sneak peeks of new product.
