Niner Jet 9

It’s getting increasingly difficult to resist the 29er movement, and it’s only made more difficult when bikes as sexy as the stunning Niner Jet 9 come along.

29er specialist Niner Bikes has three different 29in FS bikes in its range. The Jet 9 is the company’s shortest travel full-susser. It’s designed for the pursuit of speed, with a lightweight build and the same precise handling as the brands hardtails.

A low-slung hydroformed frame features 80mm (3in) of rear wheel travel with a pair of short forged linkages controlling the shock rate. A Fox RP23 shock tames the bumps. Geometry has been designed around an 80-100mm fork which plugs into the tapered head tube, keeping the front end nice and stiff.

So, if you’ve been toying with making the leap to 29er, maybe this is the bike to push you over the line?
