Our hotly debated, greatly anticipated, and masterfully created MCR 9 RDO is now an award winner for the third time this year! After winning "Best of Sea Otter" in April, followed by a Eurobike Award in September, we're now happy to have won a Bikerumor "Editor's Choice" award this month!
Editor Tyler Benedict had this to say: "As far as pushing boundaries goes, the Niner MCR 9 is definitely riding on new terrain. As the first full production full suspension gravel bike, it’s in a class of its own as of this award. What’s impressive is that it lives up to the hype. I was able to comfortably and safely ride stuff I’d otherwise have no business tackling on a gravel bike. But I could also cruise along on the pavement and dirt roads. Thanks to a design that allow for multiple bottles, frame bags and all the typical long-distance add ons, there’s not much downside other that the added weight. But the upside is a bike that opens doors to new terrain."
