RX9 – FURTHER REFINEMENT TO THE CLASSIC GRAVEL PERFORMER
We love the RX9 so much, it hits that perfect sweet spot for an all-road-off-road machine. It’s well-mannered on tarmac but really comes into its own when you turn down those unexplored trails you always wanted to check out. Confident off-road geometry means the RX9 is reassuringly capable for a dropbar bike.
For 2021 the RX9 gets a brand-new frame. With revised sizing to better fit smaller riders and some tweaks to the geometry to improve handling and stability.
The responsive and comfortable double-butted alloy frame features a low 30.9 seat tube for plenty or standover. Meanwhile, a 142 x 12mm bolt-through rear and 15mm bolt-through Carbon fork gives a sturdy feel and sharp handling. The frame has internal dropper post compatibility too, so you can spec an RX9 to be as wild as you like. You’ve plenty of tyre choice too, with carefully shaped stays to allow up to 42mm 700c or a large volume 650b set-up.As ever, we’ve looked at the smaller details and added additional bottle mounts under the down tube to allow frame bag users another option, as well as internal cable routing with neat aluminium cable grommets.
Flat mount standard disc mount keeps things tidy and accessible for running panniers and mudguards – great for going the distance whatever the weather.
