    RLT 9 STEEL

    All day comfort and control

    Steel is truly real

    Redefine adventure on the RLT 9 Steel.

    The RLT 9 Steel is for the purist, the ride after the classic aesthetics of smooth, supple steel. Whether it’s on pavement or gravel road, this bike craves long adventures. With plenty of room for all your gear, the only thing stopping you from your next ride is your imagination. Go ahead, take the ride of your dreams with the RLT 9 Steel.

    Adventure awaits - you just have to ride there

    While other frame materials fall in and out of favor, steel stands the test of time. Finely constructed steel frames, crafted and welded by the best builders, have continued to be the benchmark other materials measure themselves against. The RLT 9 Steel delivers a flawless synthesis of form and function into a frame that makes every ride open for adventure. From mounting panniers and racks for camping to traveling the gravel road that curves out of sight, the RLT9 is more than capable for the open road.

    If you’re on this steed, we know you ride the road less traveled. Adventure calls for a well-engineered frame with technology capable to keep you moving. The Niner RLT 9 is where performance, durability, and ride quality meet. Adventure awaits.

    Design

    The RLT 9 Steel was purpose-built for adventure. Every consideration was made with convenience and compatibility in mind. We’ve blended the historic Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics utilizing thru-axle technology and a tapered steel headtube. To conquer any and all terrain, the RLT9 can accommodate either a double or triple chainring. If simplicity is your thing, a single ring is an option.

    The collaboration of superior craftsmanship and the finest materials with contemporary design fine-tune the ride quality while producing a strong and resilient frame. Supple and trustworthy 853 tubing absorbs road chatter, yet still gives you feedback. There is no “dead” feeling or jarring bumps. Just a supple, comfortable ride that shifts your focus from tracking the miles to remembering the moments.

    Classic lines and modern functionality elegantly converge into a frame that is characteristically Niner. The eloquently TIG welded Reynolds 853 tubing showcases precision, strength, and durability. The gravel tuned carbon fork is designed for all-day adventure and comfort on any road surface.

    The RLT's attention to detail is second-to-none. With geometry tailored to all-day comfort and control, adventure awaits. All you have to do is ride there.

    Drivetrain

    With a PF30 bottom bracket, run your choice of geared or singlespeed drivetrains. Biocentric BB compatible, for easy singlespeed conversions.

    Rack Mounts

    Frame features include rear rack pannier braze-ons for when the adventure lasts longer than a few hours, and three sport-beer compatible water bottle mounts ensuring you have fuel in places you need it most.

    Niner RDO Fork

    Buttery-Smooth Custom Gravel-Tuned Niner Carbon Fork, 15mm thru axle with rack mid mounts, 45lb weight limit

    All-Day Adventure Tuned Geometry
