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.
