The 2018 Niner Jet 9 1-Star NX1 is now available. We link to it above and summarize the changes below.
The Jet 9 is best suited for all-day epics and high speed, technical trails without a lot of tight corners. Because of the efficient pedaling platform of the CVA (Constant Varying Arc) suspension, the Jet 9 also works quite well on flatter, more rolling trails where inertia and momentum give an advantage to 29-inch wheels. Riders seeking a more fun short-travel option should check out the lively Ibis Ripley LS. Want to step up to a chargey mid-travel option? The Santa Cruz Hightower can ride a huge range of terrain.
