INTRODUCING THE NEW S.I.R. 9

 

At a time when carbon super bikes (including our own flagship models) dominate the stage, why would Niner shine a spotlight on the S.I.R. 9? Perhaps it’s better to ask “just what is it about steel bikes?” Why, when we get on a steel frame, are we instantly transported back to that first bike we loved as a kid? Why is steel just as relevant today as it was when we started riding?

 
Like other Ninerds, we ride and love steel bikes, as do bike connoisseurs around the world. But something about steel being equated with retro seems almost unfair. There is simply no reason frames built with one of the best metals on the planet shouldn’t benefit from and take full advantage of cool technologies like updated headsets standards, tapered forks and through-axles.

 

Introducing the new S.I.R. 9 – All the fun, all the advantages, all the magic. 

 

HIGHLIGHTS 

  • New proprietary steel tubeset for ideal function and ride quality
  • New custom-bent double-butted Reynolds 853 DZB downtube
  • New 44mm Reynolds 631 head tube allows use of tapered or 1-1/8″ forks
  • New Niner Bio-Centric II Bottom bracket system and removable downtube cable stops for clean singlespeed or geared setup
  • CYA Compatible – run almost any contemporary crank style in geared set up 
  • 142 x 12mm rear Maxle
  • Post mount brake bosses between seatstay and chainstay
  • Investment cast stay bridges and dropouts
  • Tamale Red or Arctic White

NEW TUBESET WITH AWARD WINNING NINER GEOMETRY

 

 All steel is not created equal. The S.I.R. 9 tubing is a custom-selected set that utilizes the best tube options for each application within the frame.

 

For the front triangle, we employ new Reynolds 853 DZB (double zone butting) tubing. Developed for mountain bikes, and specifically 29ers, Reynolds 853 DZB offers two significant advantages:

 

Downtube Clearance – Fork/frame clearance for 29ers presents unique obstacles because of the relatively high headtube to bottom bracket height. A straight downtube needs to be welded high on the back of the headtube to achieve fork clearance, often requiring either a gusset between the headtube and the downtube or a thicker heavier downtube to achieve desired strength. We worked with Reynolds to bend the 835 DZB downtube expressly for the S.I.R. 9 so the tube can attach lower on the headtube without interfering with the fork crown.

 

Increased Precision – A lower attachment point for the downtube improves front end rigidity. The Reynolds 853 DZB downtube further differentiates itself from others by incorporating two different butting profiles on the same tube – extra strength at the headtube to reduce torsional flex combined with a butting profile in the rest of the tube that maintains ride quality and avoids weight penalties – strong where we need it, compliant where we want it.

 

For the stays we incorporate steel custom-bent in 3 dimensions – with investment cast bridges and dropouts – for ride quality and tire clearance. This shaping is proprietary to Niner and is not found on other steel mountain bikes. When combined with the new 142 x 12mm axle, the rear end of the new S.I.R. 9 provides superior power transfer while preserving the special ride quality expected from a steel frame.

 

Complete the package with Niner’s hardtail geometry expertise and the result is a new frame that is sure to win as many rider’s choice awards and great reviews as has the original S.I.R. 9.

OVERSIZED HEADTUBE

 

The oversized headtube of the S.I.R. 9 allows the use of tapered fork steerer tubes that measurably reduce fork deflection, which means your Niner tracks straight and true. The full spectrum of riders from XC racers to all mountain shredders benefit from these features which is why we incorporate the technology in all our new frames. The S.I.R. 9 Lets you take full advantage of increased steering precision as you carve a corner and descend toward the finish.

 

BIO-CENTRIC II BOTTOM BRACKET SYSTEM

 

The Niner Bio-Centric II makes adjustments easy across a wide range of gears and eliminates the need for adjustable dropouts, giving the cleanest possible solution for singlespeed use. No bolt on hubs, no chain tensioners cluttering your ride, no brake adjustments with gear changes.

 

Greater Range – The Bio-Centric II offsets the bottom bracket spindle 8.5mm from center, offering greater range of adjustment compared to a traditional EBB setup. More offset is a boon when changing gears without having to change chain length and it allows riders to make more noticeable changes to frame geometry via BB position.  

 

Reliable Function – Traditional EBB units are held in place with set screws that can become difficult to finely adjust over time, or expansion wedges that can deform the bottom bracket shell of the frame. Split bottom bracket shells that clamp an EBB can stretch or ovalize. The Bio-Centric II avoids these troubles by using two bolts to apply a clamping force on the outside edges of the BB shell, eliminating the possibility of ovalizing or indexing the shell itself. Field tested for over 18 months, secure, quiet, easy to install and adjust, the Bio-Centric II will change your ideas about singlespeed drivetrain setup and maintenance.

Additionally, the S.I.R. 9 is now CYA compatible, enabling you to run almost any contemporary crank style in geared set up.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

 

While tubing upgrades are the focus of this new design, we haven’t forgotten the details. The new the S.I.R. 9 uses 142x12mm spacing with an included Maxle for added rear-end torsional stiffness, removable downtube cable guides, post mount brake bosses between the chain and seatstay for braking precision and, of course, the Niner headbadge and two great color options for that finishing touch.

 

A LEGACY OF GREAT REVIEWS 

 

The original S.I.R. 9 has garnered many great reviews since its introduction – including MTBr’s Bike of the Year three years in a row – over all other bikes. With these significant updates, we fully expect that the new S.I.R. 9 will achieve the same accolades!

NINER WORLD TOUR CONTINUES!

 

The Ninered world wide community continues to grow and we continue to find great riding in unexpected places. In May, after a stop at the Garda festival in Italy, Chris and Brett made their way to Israel. For several years now, our Israel shops have been telling us about the great riding and the guys were excited to finally check it out!

 

The first stop for Niner was in Tel Aviv, the capital of Israel. Here we met up with Erez, Eran, Assaf and Moti, the leaders at Niner’s Israeli distributor. For the next five days, this was our home base as we explored the local MTB opportunities. 

 

Our riding took us to two different trail systems – Ben Shemen, southeast of the city and Alon Hagalil, north of town. In both places, we found beautiful trails that reminded us of our home trails in Southern California – low forest, desert and rocks. May is prime riding season in Israel – the temps were in the 70’s, perfect for us! We were very impressed by the many loops and options in a country that is just a bit larger than New Jersey.

Some things are universal – post ride beers (thanks to Nimi Cohen), good food (falafel and amazing goat-milk ice cream in this case) and friendly Ninerds. We attended a demo event with over 80 riders, many of whom are already Niner owners. The RIP 9 and Jet 9 are the most popular in Israel, great for the rocky,  technical trails.  

 

Thanks to Niner Israel and the huge group of people that came out to ride with us and to make us feel so welcome. The hospitality we experience from Ninerds all all over the world amazes and humbles us.
