Niner took the popular RLT 9 steel model and made it a carbon RDO model. There are many reasons for this permutation, yet the overall difference is weight.

Ok, right, so before you get into this you should now that what you’re about to watch is the essence of the puerile, testosterone fueled, grossly immature, hell for leather, snotty nose, blokes just having lark part of contemporary mountain biking. This video does not pass the Bechdel Test.
It’s not trying to, what its doing is blistering your eyes with a rapid-fire onslaught of graphic pictorials, what it is doing is exposing the bleeding edge art of mountain bike shredding. My guess is that it’s probably illegal to watch this in some countries such is the explicitness of the corner slapping and a loam-drifting. So check your local by-laws, ping your constable, do your f*cking research and enjoy. Just remember there’s no un-seeing this, there’s no coming back.
