Patrick Lawwrote a review of Niner Jet 9 RDO 27.5+ 5-Star X01 Eagle Complete Bike - 2017 on May 24, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Niner has updated the JET 9 once again, going longer and slacker to make this trail bike even more capable. I was able to demo both the Jet and Rip 9 down in Moab. I was absolutely blown away on how fun the Jet 9 was. We rode mag 7 and this bike ate the entire trail up. The plus tires allowed for tons of grip on the loose desert sand. The bike was super punchy on those short slick rock ascents. I was riding a medium and was really happy with how agile it was. The geometry and travel made for a more than capable descender. The CVA suspension gives the feel of a longer travel bike and is super stable at speed. The bottom line is Niner has created a bike that balances descending performance with climbing efficiency.
Feel free to hit me up with any questions regarding bikes:
Size Frame: What size frame should you go with?
Travel: Finding the right amount of travel that fits your riding style.
Full Package: Can provide a quote for both a custom or complete box build that fits your budget.
Comparison: How does this bike ride compared to others in the same class? What are the pros and cons of going with another option?
