On a recent road trip along the California coast with Kirt Voreis, we forced him to stand in the direct sunlight, without his Smith shades, and take pictures with his JET 9 RDO and his RIP 9 RDO. (He loved every minute of it.)
Both frames use Niner’s Carbon Compaction system to keep the weight down but the strength high. Each frame also uses Niner’s patented CVA suspension designed around the 29 inch wheelset. Here’s an up close look at how Kirt has his bikes built.

Kirt’s roll in peace, huck in peace, go to, long travel trail/enduro bike – the RIP 9 RDO. Kirt takes the RIP along to conquer whatever the trail throws at him. He also races DH on it. (Click for Kirt in action on the RIP.)
