Niner EMD9 Frame 2013:
The E.M.D. 9 may be the least expensive frame in the Niner lineup but it benefits from the same design process and expectations that we require from every Niner frame. Newly redesigned to integrate custom hydroformed tubing and a tapered headtube, the E.M.D. 9 is a worthy little brother to the Air 9.
Because of the larger welding area created by the new tapered headtube we are able to include a new, massive hydroformed downtube as well as a significantly larger diameter toptube, contributing to a much stronger frame.
By allowing for the use of the newest generation of 1.5” tapered steerer suspension forks and integrated headset, we create the stiffest front end possible – with the same stack height as our original E.M.D. 9 model.
The E.M.D. 9 is finished off with the quality you have come to expect from Niner, with all of the attention to detail that every Niner frame gets, including the stainless steel Niner head badge, reamed and faced headtube and bottom bracket, chased BB threads and faced disc brake mount tabs.
It’s important to us that everything bearing the Niner logo has been thought through from top to bottom and the E.M.D. 9 is no exception. We’ve poured our heart and soul into this frame, as much as any other, and we’ve created a fun, fast, comfortable ride that still embodies what it means to be a Niner.
