Niner Bikes Releases Stealth Black Licorice Air 9 Carbon
The first time I ever laid eyes on the Air 9 Carbon, I notice the sleek lines…almost seamless designs…and the loud color combos that just screamed look at my beauty. Arguably the sexiest carbon hardtail on the market, Niner had a winner on their hands. But…my next proceeding thought was…that would look killer naked.
Apparently I was not the only one that thought this, so Niner just released the Classic Black Licorice color scheme.
You asked, we listened. Now available – a sleek, stealthy version of the Air 9 Carbon – for those of you that like to fly under the radar. Carbon texture meets our classic black licorice paint in a bike that would make Darth Vader jealous. See your Niner Dealer to order.
We first got a glimpse that this look might be a possibility when a raw version of the frame from the Niner offices started showing up around online forums. With enough begging and pleading from the MTB community to do a version of this frame…the crew at Niner provided.
In my opinion, raw with black logos is the only way to fly on carbon frames. I really wish frame makers would embrace “stealth” look more even if that does mean their logo is not quite as predominate. Ironically enough, I have found these frames to attract as much attention and questions as louder, brighter color schemes, but it appeals to my simplicity style. Can you imagine a carbon Santa Cruz Nomad or V10 in this setup?
What do you think of the new color combo?
