NINER RIP E9 3-STAR (MAGNETIC GREY-OIL SLICK)
Featuring Niner engineering, the best Bosch Performance Line drive systems, extended range batteries, and creative, long-lasting designs, the e9 series raises the fun factor to 11. The e9 series offers two new ways to experience our unique #ninerd brand of freedom. , fun and adventure.
There has always been an “e” in Niner
At Niner, our mission is to improve gravel driving, period.
We started making 29ers from “day one”, in 2005, because they really improved our ride, allowing riders to pedal faster, smoother, farther, stronger and feel more confident.
Today, in 2020, our mission has not changed. With the e9 series, we increased the fun factor by offering new Pedal Damn it shapes while maintaining Niner’s signature ride quality and style.
9 things you should know:
– 1.Two brand new electric mountain bikes: the RIP e9, with 150mm of travel, and the WFO e9, with 180mm of travel.
– 2.Equipped next-generation Bosch Performance Line CX motors, offering smooth and predictable power, lighter weight and compact size.
– 3.Engine mounts are one-piece alloy, cast and post-machined for strength and rigidity.
– 4.The Power Tube battery is 625wh and is integrated into the frame.
– 5.They are bikes made with Niner’s design, engineering and DNA, for rider-centered performance and handling.
– 6.Hardly tested to ensure durability pedaling hard on dirt.
– 7.Down tube batteries accessible from the outside, to facilitate loading and transport.
– 8.The Horst link suspension system, tuned by Niner, optimizes kinematics for the specific demands of eMTB riding.
– 9.The shock absorber, with Trunnion anchoring system, offers a flexible suspension that grips the ground at all times.
The best way to improve a gravel ride is to stay out longer, go a little further, climb to the top earlier, or just make it happen. The new 150mm travel RIP e9 29er makes sure all of these requirements are met.
Welded 6061 aluminum frame and one-piece motor mount
We start with a hand-welded 6061 aluminum frame and one-piece engine mount that unifies the upper and lower pivot locations with the shock mount for exceptional stiffness. Forged links and dropouts at the ends of the frame provide added strength and the pivots are mounted on Enduro Max Black Oxide bearings to ensure smooth performance and long life.
A Bosch Performance Line CX motor offers smooth pedaling assistance without surprises. Torque-sensitive, lag-free power delivery is predictable in all conditions.
Power Tube 625 Battery
The 625 Wh external down tube battery offers easy access and a robust 50 mi / 80 km (average) range. Torque-sensitive, lag-free power delivery is courtesy of Bosch and the Gen 4 Performance CX drivetrain. Powered by a 625 Wh battery, this system offers miles of reliable and predictable pedaling assistance in the most challenging conditions.
But above all, Niner’s ride quality is paramount. Consequently, the suspension behavior of RIP e9 was carefully evaluated during development. The addition of pedal assist reduced the importance of Niner’s signature CVA system and the highly efficient and elaborately tuned pedaling platform it offers.
150mm suspension travel
With the freedom to consider a range of proven and well-matched suspension designs, our engineers turned to (and embraced) a Horst-link system. In pursuit of maximum performance, we adjusted the shock length, travel, orientation and location of the shock to obtain Niner’s characteristic kinematics.
Lockable air damper
The net result is a remarkably flexible and balanced suspension curve that adapts to both uphill and downhill, and is ready to tackle any trail. But above all, Niner’s ride quality is paramount. Consequently, the performance of the RIP e9 suspension was carefully evaluated during development. The addition of pedal assist reduced the importance of Niner’s signature CVA system and the highly efficient and elaborately tuned pedaling platform it offers. The suspension curve is extraordinarily flexible and balanced and adapts so much to the climb
as on the descent.
Shock guard under engine protects against impacts.
