The original Niner RDO Fork practically defined the category. It could be seen at races, group rides, and on the trail each and every weekend. The new and improved Niner Boost RDO Carbon Fork improves and modernizes the wildly popular platform. Featuring modern 110x15mm Boost spacing, clearance for 29x3.0''' tires, mid-blade rack mounts and Niner''s RDO carbon construction. The Niner Boost RDO Fork is backed by NIner''s excellent 5-year warranty.

asked by: a guest Will this fit 2012 highball 29er Santa cruz
anwered by: canteau The Niner RDO Carbon fork requires an 1-1/8-1.5" tapered headtube and a front wheel that has a Boost 15x110mm front wheel.
The 2012 HighBall most likely came with a tapered headtube, but unless you changed out the fork and front wheel you will need a new front wheel because Boost is a newer hub standard that wasn't around in 2012.

Used this fork for an Air9 RDO single-speed build. Excellent for this application. I have not found a better rigid fork, especially if you are mating it with an Niner frame. The steering precision you get with a rigid fork, boost hub spacing and wide carbon rims is amazing. If you are building rigid, you should check out this fork. And Tree Fort Bikes got it to me in just a couple days, even before the frame arrived.
