Niner rider and Wattie Ink athlete ambassador Yuri Hauswald has a small fleet of Niners to choose from, but his go-to rig for racing and daily rides is our RLT 9 RDO frame and fork, in size 56cm. This workhorse carbon frame and fork is among our most popular gravel bikes.
Yuri's RLT however is far from stock when it comes to the build. As a gravel and endurance specialist, he's custom-fitted a number of parts that make the machine unique.
Also custom to Yuri's bike are Roval Terra CLX carbon wheels. They claim to be the lightest gravel wheels on the market with 25mm internal-width rims, deliver a durable and exceptionally smooth ride, and are compatible with 28-47c tires with up to 90 PSI. He's wrapped them in the new Pirelli Cinturato gravel bike tires.
