EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

The Air 9 RDO is a geared racing bike with purposeful lines and trimmed profiles throughout. The smaller PF30 shell of the Air 9 RDO suggested smaller junctions and negated the need for an alloy insert. The rear brake mount is tucked inside the curving stays to distribute twisting forces evenly, permitting smaller caliper mounts and decreased wall thicknesses. Even the headset races in the headtube are molded carbon for the best weight savings.

What the jury had to say: “What a great ride! The best 29” bike there is. Perfectly designed, clean lines, high-quality components, good curve control. It rides like a dream!”
