Nimble 9

We don’t believe full suspension bikes should get to have all the fun, that’s why we crafted a 4130 chromoly 29er hardtail that’s ready to get rowdy. The N9 combines the revered ride quality of a steel frame with our signature slack and low Canfield 29er all-mountain geo. Fresh for 2017, the N9 receives Boost 148 rear hub spacing, reach is stretched by more than an inch on all sizes for a roomier cockpit and seat tubes are shortened for increased maneuverability when you drop the saddle. Whether you’re a masochist building a singlespeed or you just want keep it real with an aggressive all-mountain steel hardtail, the N9 is ready to roll.
