You ride the road less traveled. Niner’s RLT 9 Steel was purpose-built for adventure. Such two-wheeled adventure calls for a well-engineered frame made of the finest materials with reliable and highly-functional components capable of keeping you moving. Niner knows this, which is why they blended legendary Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics, utilizing thru-axles and a tapered head tube to deliver the time-tested durability and ride quality of steel with the performance advantages offered by cutting-edge design. The tapered head tube pairs with a gravel-tuned carbon Niner fork that is both stiff and strong while damping the chatter from pocked roads and stones, all while nonchalantly carrying you and your gear. And, you will fear no grade, because gearing options are nearly limitless. The RLT 9 can accommodate a double or triple chainring, or just a single ring if simplicity is your thing.

To maximize comfort during extended hours in the saddle, the supple steel is beautifully welded with All-Day Adventure-Tuned Geometry that features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube angle than many bikes often use for adventure riding. This means you get a ride that is more stable, rides more smoothly, and carries loads with pleasure—exactly what you’ve been looking for in an adventure bike. And, of course, the RLT 9 offers front and rear rack braze-ons, as well as three water bottle mounts to facilitate all your gear-hauling needs with myriad options to suit person and purpose.

The RLT 9 3-Star marries the above-mentioned radness with a SRAM Rival 22 parts group for a seamless connection between you and your controls. The Rival hydraulic disc brakes will make you forget all about brake fade on long fire road descents and have more than enough power to stop you and all your gear, even when conditions are less than ideal. And, Rival's shifting precision is matched only by its steadfast longevity, making this wide-range 2 x 11-speed drivetrain an excellent choice for adventure riding. Free yourself to focus on the experience, not fussing over your gear.
