NINER RLT 9 STEEL 2-STAR BIKE 2020
The road less traveled is being ridden more thanks to gravel bikes. The gravel bike category continues to grow in popularity and many new bikes are coming out that make gravel riding a blast. The 2-Star version of the RLT Steel comes with a 2×10 Shimano GRX drivetrain. This provides riders with a cassette that has an 11-34-tooth gear range that works well with climbing and riding in rougher terrain. Shimano GRX hydraulic disc brakes provide confidence-inspiring stopping power. The Niner CX Alloy wheels are paired with Schwable G-One 700x40c tires. With the Niner Carbon Seatpost, you’ll have a slightly smoother ride compared to an alloy seatpost.

MAGURA MT TRAIL SL BRAKESET
Going fast is wonderful, but it won’t mean much if you can’t come to a quick and complete stop. Acceleration and deceleration are two sides to the same coin that are equally important.
