Niner Air 9 White SM
The Air 9 frame applies custom drawn Easton GX2 Scandium. A composition of scandium and 7005-series aluminum is truly an advanced proprietary alloy with higher strength properties while also increasing compliance. Achieving the impossible, Easton’s blend of tubing with custom drawn and shaped rear s-bend chain stays and seat stays makes this baby a light, agile ripper of a frame that offers comfort in the long haul.
This is a classic racer, lightweight, high-tech bike with technology and geometry that has proven to be stunning and wicked fast.

Niner has prided themselves on having 100% dedication to the 29” wheel format since 2004 but has recently released (2016) a 27.5+/29er frame into their lineup. Their commitment goes beyond the bicycle product, founder Chris Sugai has made it a mission to continuously support the International Mountain Biking Association, also known as IMBA. Knowing that the mountain biking community needs places to ride, if there wasn’t there would be no Niner.
Their main headquarters are found in Fort Collins, CO where daily magic and mojo shine through. Assembly and shipping of complete bikes for resale are done in California, showing a real commitment to the American based cycling industry.
We are excited to carry the Niner brand not only because they are some of the highest quality rigs on the market but also because of the beautiful mountain biking community they have helped mold. Starting with their in-house crew and kick-ass work surroundings in their Colorado location. Become a Ninerd by riding and supporting your passionate brand by yelling it from the mountain tops as you cascade downhill. New to the Niner brand or not you can visit any of their bike demos. You don’t have to just drool over their bikes, throw a leg over them and “PEDAL DAMN IT!”
