Niner Rip9 Frame 2012:
The RIP9: same travel, same weight, drastically increased stiffness.
Our CVA™ suspension technology still gives the rear wheel 4.5” of smooth, efficient, active suspension
travel while the geometry has been tweaked to utilize the latest 120mm travel forks – giving the R.I.P. 9
that perfect all-mountain balance.
Niner has redefined its award winning suspension frame from the ground up maximizing new design
and production technologies. From the head tube to the rear drop out, Niner picked over every single
detail and asked “can it be done better?” Taper steerer tube technology at the head tube, hydroformed
top tube and down tube, and over 10 forged or extruded parts on the R.I.P. 9 all went through a
painstaking process of FEA, mechanical stress tests and real world testing to be as light and as strong as
possible. The result: increased stiffness everywhere without a weight penalty.
The R.I.P. 9 will re-awaken your passion for what all mountain is all about.
Note: Fork not included.
