NINER HISTORY

THE BIRTH OF A LEGEND

Back in the early 2000’s Niners founders were avid mountainbikers and early adopter of 29ers’. Quickly realising when they were out with riders on 26er’s on the trails, they realised they were hitting things harder and faster and climbing quicker than the rest of the local riders and identified the increased performance and comfort to them using 29 inch wheels.

With him 100% sold on the technology he founded Niner Bikes in 2005 and launched at Sea Otter that very year with a Scandium Alloy, fully rigid, single speed only, disc brake specific 29er called the One 9.

As the market grew Niner added alloy and carbon mountainbikes as well as patenting the CVA suspension system (Constantly Varying Arc) one of the very first suspension platforms designed solely around 29 inch wheels.

Over the years, Niner has pushed technology in the mountainbike space with rigid carbon forks, Bio Centric 30 bottom bracket for single speeds, the use of enduro MAX black oxide bearings and many more.

ROAD LESS TRAVELED

Adding gravel bikes to the range in 2012, Niner capitalized on another prescient vision of the rapidly evolving, niche/enthusiast cycling segment. Riding gravel bikes on dirt roads became one of the fastest-growing segments among dedicated riders, with Niner among the world’s most popular brands of gravel bikes.

In 2020 Niner joined the E-bike revolution and launched the WFO e9, RIP e9 and a worlds first RLT e9 E-Gravel. The e9 series of ebikes was powered exclusively by Bosch, a global leader in ebike technology. Even with an expanding range of available drive systems, the choice to partner with Bosch was easy for Niner.
We made sure that the new ebikes fit in with Niner’s ethos and keep pushing the technology forward, with great things to come in the ebike space.

PEDAL, DAMN IT!

pedal, damn it!With the first Niner bike being a 29er, fully rigid, single speed, Some of the riders were struggling on getting up some of the more technical local climbs. As a form of motivation “pedal, damn it!” was written on a post it note and stuck it to the top tube. When ever they needed more motivation they looked down and read it for an extra mental boost!
To this day this is still on the top tube of every Niner bike and is one of the longest running strap lines in Mountainbike history.

STEEL IS REAL

With one of Niner’s first mountainbikes being a steel 29er and we stay truly to our roots, the new generation of S.I.R (Steel Is Real) is made from cutting edge Reynolds 853 tubing, giving you a more forgiving yet focused ride, still craved by mountainbikers the world over.
