Ringtail: New Block Breaker Jackets

The two jackets are made from solid, ultra light nylon while the Breezer Vest is perforated on the back allowing for ventilation during those cool autumn mornings. This run has slightly larger wrist openings at the sleeves to make putting them on and taking them off a bit easier.

Niner Updates the RLT 9 and RLT 9 Steel

We loved Niner’s RLT9 Steel ‘cross bike but even in its perfectly capable form, Niner felt like “good” wasn’t enough so they took the entire RLT9 line and gave it thru-axles along with a new fork. This new fork takes a 15mm thru axle as well as new-mid mount rack attachments as well for those wanting to run a rack on their race bike in the off-season.

Overall, these new details add to the versatility of these new bikes, which are shipping now in prices ranging from $1,050 for a RLT9 frame, $2,000 for a 2 Star, 105 11-speed build and up to $5,500 for the Di2 Hydro 5 star build. The RLT9 Steel frame is a bit more, starting at $1,500 for a frame, $2,500 for a 2 Star, 105 11-speed build and up to $6,000 for the Di2 Hydro 5 star build.
