We've been convinced by Niner's ability to dominate the market of 29er bikes for some time, and we'll admit we were a bit shocked by the sudden drift their designers took to adopt the 27. 5 wheel, but after one ride, we're convinced. The Niner Jet 9 RDO 27. 5 3-Star GX Eagle complete mountain bike has managed to capture the trail-ready geometry of a Niner all-mountain bike, with the added plush squish of a plus sized tire.

The latest update to the Niner Jet 9 RDO frame moved the speedy XC race geometry, and gave it a bit of a makeover to make it a better all-around trail bike for sending it on the whole mountain. An additional 20mm of travel was added to the Continuously Varying Arc (CVA) rear suspension, which brings the total to 120mm, and added the ability to swap back and forth between 29er and 27. 5 wheels.
