We had a chance to weigh Niner Bikes’ new Air9 RDO carbon hardtail race bike at the SE Bike Expo. Then, we got some images and weights from Pro Bike Supply with a fully stock build and their Pro build, which dropped a full half pound off the already impressively light bike. To top it all off, we then weighed a range of sizes for the full carbon Jet9 RDO as well as our own bare frameset.
Above is the only Air9 RDO on the eastern demo fleet with a non-stock build. It’s equipped with Sun-Ringle’s Blag Flag wheels, Ergon grips and a full
XTR XT drivetrain and brakes. Not a bad build at all, and this size Large XL comes in at 22lbs 9oz without pedals.
