Niner Jet Review
When we took the Niner Jet out for a spin, we realized that it was truly the best bike for downhill racing that we have tried to date.
The frame is based on a solid design instead of being about the formation of little airbags, which means that there is a lot of weight loss when compared to previous models of the Jet. The frame itself is made out of carbon fiber with a 120mm travel fork on the front as well.
The angles of the frame and head are made for climbing up and down hills, with the back of the bike being a little longer to allow for better traction on the sharp descents.
In addition to this, the suspension is Niner’s own CVA system, making use of dual links for better damping of the worst bumps out there. There is almost no pedal bob while riding this bike, and we found that it was a very fulfilling experience.
- Great frame design
- Obviously built for downhill racing
- Amazing suspension for the bad bumps
- Solid design reduces weight
- Not for casual cyclists
This is a bike that isn’t made for the faint of heart. With its gorgeous design, handling and power, this is a bike that is built to destroy the harshest trails with ease.
We had the best time in the world playing around with the Niner Jet, although we did realize soon enough that playing was far too casual a term to be using around a monster like this. We recommend that you get this bike if you plan on busting your lungs every week.
