The Air 9 Carbon is now a dedicated geared racing bike with trickle-down RDO features throughout, including reduced diameters and trimmed tube profiles, smaller junctions, molded carbon headset races and a carbon BB shell. Additionally, the rear brake mount is now tucked inside the curving stays to distribute twisting forces evenly, permitting smaller caliper mounts. The benefits of a tapered headtube aren't just for riders of long travel bikes. XC racers and riders also see significant advantages, which is why we incorporate the technology in all our new frames. Climbing or descending, the geometry of the Air 9 is tuned to for great handling and rider positioning. The Air 9 Carbon is intended for 80-100 mm forks, allowing you to fine tune your ride.
