    Niner Leverage Ratios

    What are Niner's leverage ratios? Is the stroke length on the RIP 9 : 2, 2.25 or 2.5in? Also, is the travel 4.5" or 4.7"?


    I'm planning to replace my RP23 with a Rockshox Monarch RT3. I'm leaning towards mid tune based on my weight (190lb) and riding style (most XC, occasionally AM) but am wondering if this is outside of the leverage ratio. Also, what size shock goes on the RIP, JET and WFO?

    Check Niner's website under the bikes then Specifications and Compatibility you are asking about, as it has all the info that you need regarding stroke length, travel and shock size.

    Perfect, thanks. The shock stroke on the RIP is 2in.

    I'm still not sure if the actual travel is 4.5" or 120mm tho. 6mm isn't a big deal, but it's the different between a 2.5 and 2.36 leverage ratio.

    Travel is 115mm/50mm stroke for the RIP 9. WFO 9 is 140mm/57mm stroke.

    Jordan, you wouldn't have a leverage curve to pass around, would you?
