i recently had the pleasure of riding this bike for several hours and I must say I was very impressed with it. The RDO stands for Race Day Optimized and it has one goal-to get you across the finish line first! i found the bike handled extremely well over varied terrain. It definitely excels in out of the saddle climbing as it has a stiff bottom bracket giving the bike an unmistakable feeling of surging forward with every stroke of the pedal. It also felt very grounded when decending and i was able to really let it go as the balanced geometry gave me a very confident experience. The bike is very comfortable too which sometimes is the downfall of a stiff hardtail. I rode the bike for 3+ hours and did not feel beat up when i got off of it. All in all this bike is a steal for this price. If you are looking to up your game with one of the fastest,most comfy hardtails on the market, the Air 9 RDO is definitely the bike for you.
