Niner Bikes: Update to the RIP 9 RDO

Niner have been making 29 bikes for a good while, and we’ve just got an email to say they’re now even better. They’ve got a better way of forming carbon apparently, and have used it on the RIP 9 RDO. Here’s what they have to say:

The RIP 9 RDO is beautiful from the inside out via Niner’s Carbon Compaction System. Now used throughout the Niner RDO lineup, this CCS utilizes rigid inter­nal molds and results in tighter, more consistent compaction of the carbon layers, yielding increased precision in wall thickness and significantly reduced resin pooling in the final product, allowing us to aim for better ride tuning, increased strength and durability along with the weight reduction that results from a more efficient process.

If that means what I think it does, it means it’s stiffer and lighter, which, on balance, is probably a good thing.

There we go then.
