Description

VICTORY FAVORS THE EQUIPPED
The RKT 9 RDO is intended to do one thing very well _ fly. All stops were pulled to create the most efficient full suspension race-worthy short travel sled. The frame is constructed using our RDO Carbon Compaction technology, which utilizes highly resilient fibers to provide front and rear triangles that are incredibly lightweight and durable. Punish it on daylong epics and be amazed _ it will keep coming back for more despite its featherweight feel.

FEATURES
Our patented CVA linkage design allows for pedal forces to operate independently of rear wheel travel, providing every ounce of the rider's hard-earned energy a clear path to the pedals, and after extensive testing, our engineers optimized the linkage and bearings to produce the lightest, stiffest version of CVA to date. No detail was overlooked.

A 73MM PF30 BB provides compatibility with the latest 1x and more conventional multiple ring drivetrain configurations and can be adapted to a threaded bottom bracket via adaptors. Frame sizes medium and larger have water bottle mounts on both the underside of the down tube and within the front triangle allowing for ample hydration during longer marathon-style endurance events. When the racing gets rough, the frame finds protection behind titanium frame plates which guard against the potential of a dropped chain, while clear protective decals add impact resistance to common rock-strike and high-abuse areas.

The RKT's 439mm chainstay length provides the perfect balance of acceleration, climbing traction and the ability to carve up the racetrack. The RKT is the first Niner to feature Boost 148mm x 12mm rear spacing and has clearance for up to 2.4” tires. This feature allows for a wider spoke interface and an overall stiffer wheel and swingarm combo, enabling you to confidently maintain line selection in the roughest conditions.

DESIGN
Designed around racing performance, the RKT achieves the lowest standover height of any bike in our line up. This low standover height allows the bike to be leaned further to tackle tight corners and switchbacks, and delivers a truly nimble, race-ready ride.
