Steel is for real on the Niner RLT 9 Steel gravel bike. Nothing really replicates the feel of steel on dirt roads, and the rougher the surface is under your wheels the more steel really performs. Taking out of the vibrations, its smooth and supple ride takes gravel or road riding to new levels of comfort and performance. The RLT uses Reynolds 853 steel, which is nearly the perfect material for creating a bike frame and the very best steel money can buy. Many would say that it is close to the quality of titanium as you get. For rugged dependability and reliability, couple this with a RDO carbon fork with a 12 X100-millimeter through axel and flat disk mount brake, and you have a bike that is ready for the long haul. The RLT can accommodate tires as wide as 700X50c. This bike comes with a 2-star build package.
