I was happy to see that we are carrying Ellsworth bikes now as I had a chance to throw a leg over one of these at dealer camp and had a blast on it. My initial impressions of the bike were great. On to ride quality: The bike is very well suited for XC type riding and is definitely an epic ride kinda bike. Although I didn't spend a ton of time riding it I felt the bike was very comfortable for spending extended hours in the saddle. Even though it is on the comfort end of mtn bikes it actually climbed well with very little bouncing of the suspension. Due to the longer wheelbase of the bike Its pretty relaxed on long flowy type trails and decends extremely well. Even though the wheel base is a bit long it still handles pretty well in tight, twisty singletrack. To sum it up the bike is super fun to ride and left me wanting to explore more on it. We only have a limited number of these so i would recommend picking one up before the disappear.
You maybe eligible for an additional discount on this bike as well.Contact me direct for details.

stiff and light
5 5

This is an awesome wheelset! Just picked up a Yeti that was spec'd with these and I'm extremely satisified. Very stiff and light weight . They are ideal for XC racing but durable enough to be an everyday wheel as well. If you haven't experienced carbon on the trail its a very unique feel that will have you instantly sold. Highly,Highly recommended!

This bike is an amazing value.I have had the opportunity of riding this bike several times and really enjoyed ripping it around the trails of Utah. Its very well rounded. Most definitely a race machine as it is stiff and lightweight but its also a very comfortable hardtail and ideal for doing longer rides as well.. This is largely due to the over sized tubes,big tires and clever carbon layup by Niner. The icing on the cake for this build is the sweet X01 drive train (1x11) The X01 is extremely efficient on the trail. Say goodbye to chain throwing with this set up! It shaves weight too . If you have never experienced 1x11 on the trail its time to make the switch. I highly recommend adding this stud to your stable.

***This is a custom build so components can be switched out .Not seeing your size? We also have a few close out Air 9 RDO's in various sizes we can do this same build on for just a few dollars more or we can do the same build with a 2015 model.Feel free to reach out to me direct for questions or guidance wbranham@competitivecyclist.com or 801-736-6396 x 4074

RDO stands for Race Day Optimized and it doesn't disappoint! As we all know, the carbon 29er hardtail is the fastest race machine you can buy for most types of offroad racing. Niner has taken their famous Air 9 Carbon a step further and created the Race Day Optimized model for those of us that want the fastest of the fast.

I'd have to describe the Niner Air 9 RDO as the quickest handling and most nimble-perfectly suited for the east coast and those tight twisty trails everywhere. It doesnt have that sluggish 29er feel plaguing most 29ers and quickly responds to any input from the pilot. Its an amazing deal right now so scoop one up before they disappear.

*** Beacuse of the awesome sale price of this bike we can put together a very impressive build and a significant savings. I do have a couple of packages that I would be happy to discuss. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

i recently had the opportunity of riding this bike in Moab and had an absolute blast! Ive been on fatbikes in the past and found them to be heavy and sluggish-but not this bike. The bike comes in around 29.5 lbs and was extremely agile on the trail and the more traditional mtn bike geometry made the bike feel very balanced and at times I forgot i was on a fatbike. The frame is just stiff enough to allow impressive handling in spite of the big tires. The nicest feature of the bike is the Rockshox Bluto fork. its lightweight, simple to use and really expands the abilities of the bike allowing you to take it places you have only dreamed about on a fatbike. It actually feels like it has 5-6 inches of travel allowing you to maneuver over the trickest terrain with ease. Probably the coolest feature of the bike is its ability to run a 29+ wheelset (available through Borealis). it makes the bike very versatile allowing you to swap out the wheels for a skinnier version for the hot,dry summer months and swap back to the fat wheels for the mud and snow season. It like having 2 bikes! so to sum it up this bike is an absolute blast to ride and highly recommended. It sure kept a smile on my face :)

If you have any questions about the bike feel free to contact me direct. My email address is wbranham@competitivecyclist.com or 801-736-6396 x 4074.
I can order the 29+ wheels as well.

Amazing Bike
5 5

've been riding bikes for the past 25 years and have been through many makes and models. I pulled the trigger on one of these this year and I must say i have never had a bike that performed as well as this one. It is extremely comfortable on long distances and the more relaxed geometry (compared to the dogma 2)of the bike makes it a great choice for us old guys. The bike handles extremely well in the climbing department and a very fast descender too. If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up.
If you have specific questions on this bike i can speak from experience. I'm a sales rep for Competitive cyclist and can be reached directly at 801-736-6396 x 4074 or email at wbranham@competitivecyclist.com

This is a great bike and one of the best gravel grinders on the market. I had a chance to demo it last fall and found it to be very versatile on a variety of different surfaces. Its a little on the stiff side but that translates to awesome power transfer and good climbing. I found it to be very fun and would definitely consider getting one myself. These are custom builds so components and be swapped or upgraded. Hit me up direct if you need guidance.

Awesome 29r!
5 5


I recently had the very fortunate opportunity of riding this bike for a couple of hours down in Moab and I must say I was extremely impressed.So impressed that I bought one. i felt the bike handled very well over lots of varied terrain. It definitely excels in climbing and this is largly due to the single pivot design working in conjunction with the CTD rear shock making for a very stable suspension platform. Its also light as hell,weighing in at just 23.1 pounds. Lightweight and nimble. Definitely the best XC 29r Ive been on and I highly recommend it if you have the means.

Great Stand
5 5

I recently picked up one of these stands for my road bike and am very pleased. The stand inserts easily into my bike crank and comes with different adapters so it covers a wide range of different sized cranks, Its fairly light weight as well so its easily transported. This works great for keeping your bike in place when washing it too. I highly recommend it!

I recently had a chance to ride this bike and absolutely love it. Its light weight and responsive with a nice aero design. The Sram Force11 speed group is a nice addition and was very pleased with the Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels. All and all this bike is a steal at $2499.00. Do yourself and favor and pull the trigger on this beautiful bike. You definitely wont regret it.

Awesome boots

These boots are fantastic. I just picked up a pair and have worn them several times and I must say they are extremely warm and comfy. Rossi reinforced the front of the boots for 2015 so they are very structurally sound. Its a great choice whether you are ripping down the groomed stuff or chopping in the glades. I highly recommend picking up a pair.....

Fun Bike and worth every penny!

I had the opportunity to ride this bike at Outerbike in Moab this year and had an absolute blast on it. The bike was so light weight and agile i totally forgot i was riding a rigid fatbike. If you are in the market for something to ride over the winter months in the snow or in the sand this is definitely the fatbike to get!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i recently had the opportunity of riding this bike in Moab and had an absolute blast! Ive been on fatbikes in the past and found them to be heavy and sluggish-but not this bike. The bike comes in around 28.5 lbs and was extremely agile on the trail and the more traditional mtn bike geometry made the bike feel very balanced and at times I forgot i was on a fatbike. The frame is just stiff enough to allow impressive handling in spite of the big tires. The nicest feature of the bike is the Rockshox Bluto fork. its lightweight, simple to use and really expands the abilities of the bike allowing you to take it places you have only dreamed about on a fatbike. It actually feels like it has 5-6 inches of travel allowing you to maneuver over the trickest terrain with ease. Probably the coolest feature of the bike is its ability to run a 29+ wheelset (available through Borealis). it makes the bike very versatile allowing you to swap out the wheels for a skinnier version for the hot,dry summer months and swap back to the fat wheels for the mud and snow season. It like having 2 bikes! so to sum it up this bike is an absolute blast to ride and highly recommended. It sure kept a smile on my face :)
