Handlebar height is critical to efficiency and comfort. Until now, small riders have had to choose between the advantages of longer travel forks and big wheels vs. achieving an optimal XC position.
Niner has inside information when it comes to fitting smaller riders on 29ers – our President and Marketing Manager both fit in this category. Chris and Carla are the first ones to speak up and make sure we address the needs of of riders at every height. We’ve added size extra small frames to Niner’s line up and now we take it one step further to help you get the best fit. Our new Low Top RDO handlebar has all the features of Niner’s RDO line up – it’s light, strong and is covered by our C5 Carbon warranty, but an inch lower.
