Overview

One 9 RDO

You’ve probably noticed we have a habit of revisiting our classic models and occasionally injecting them with a huge dose of YEAH. In the case of the One 9 RDO, we’ve created a completely new bike – melding the single-mindedness of the legendary One 9 with our award-winning Air 9 RDO carbon chassis. The result is lightning quick, strong as a gorilla but sexy as they come. In other words, the One 9 RDO is going to make you forget all about your other bikes. If loving the One 9 RDO is wrong, you won’t want to be right...

Description

Refined Design

The newest member of our hardtail RDO program, the One 9 RDO is a singlespeed racer designed to go flat out fast. The One 9 RDO is specifically intended as a singlespeed racing bike, utilizing the reduced diameters and trimmed profiles of our RDO hardtail line up throughout. The rear brake mount is tucked inside the curving stays to distribute twisting forces evenly, permitting smaller caliper mounts and decreased wall thicknesses. Even the headset races in the headtube are molded carbon - we shaved grams wherever we found them. The net result? A singlespeed that can’t be matched for quality and weight.

Tapered Headtube

The benefits of a tapered headtube aren’t just for riders of long travel bikes. XC racers and riders also see significant advantages, which is why we incorporate the technology in all our new frames. By using the newest tapered steerer suspension forks, we create the stiffest front end possible – leading to increased steering precision as you carve a corner and descend toward the finish line. The integrated headset used in the One 9 RDO is light and simple. Installation, cleaning and maintenance take seconds rather than minutes, a boon to anyone who queues up at the starting line without a team mechanic.

Biocentric Bottom Bracket

The Niner BioCentric II makes adjustments easy across a wide range of gears and eliminates the need for adjustable dropouts, giving the cleanest possible solution for singlespeed use. No bolt on hubs, no chain tensioners cluttering your ride, no brake adjustments with gear changes.

1X Drivetrain Compatability

For those who want a little extra versatility, the One 9 RDO is compatible with Niner’s CYA bottom bracket system, enabling riders to run systems such as SRAM’s XX1 or XO1.

Real World Weight Savings

Sharing key layup and mold features with the Air 9 RDO, combined with the singlespeed simplicity of this frame, gives the One 9 RDO an average weight of 1235g. Combined with the Niner RDO fork, you are looking at one of the lightest mountain bikes available.

Niner Hardtail Geometry

As verified over and over again in independent reviews, Niner has hardtail 29er geometry dialed. Climbing or descending, the geometry of the One 9 RDOis tuned to for great handling and rider positioning. The One 9 RDO is intended for 80 to 100mm forks, allowing you to fine tune your ride.
