The Niner RLT 2 Star build offers a tremendous value for the investment. Featuring a durable, yet incredibly comfortable Reynolds 853 tubeset, this gravel bike is a great blend of comfort and performance. Even though it is a gravel bike by definition we like to think of the RLT as an excellent choice for whatever road less traveled adventure you might have in mind. It's all day geometry, ability to soften almost any terrain, and a bevy of rack, frame bag configurations make it a top choice for the one bike to rule them all.
Like all Niner 2 Star builds, this RLT is a workhorse of thoughtfully curated parts that offer value, and durability without the concern of cutting a few grams for a disproportionate amount of cash. SRAM Apex Hydro, a 1x11 Apex gravel focused drivetrain, and Niner''s incredible Gravel RDO fork is just a small part of what this bike has to offer.

Gravel bike vs. Cross bike? Rebecca Rush explains.
The Niner RLT truly could be one of the only bikes in your stable. It can commute, race, bike pack, and conquer group road rides with relative ease.
