Bikecheck: Sofians Atlas Mountain Race Niner Air9 RDO

Sofian atlas mountain race Niner air 9
Sofian Sehili is no stranger to the world of Bikepacking having won Italy Divide and Inca Divide in 2019 as well as previously finishing in the top 10 of the Tour Divide. Sofian is a bike messenger based in Paris so long days in the saddle come very naturally to him. HUNT Beyond will be supporting Sofian in 2020 and he is already at the pointy end of his first race, The Atlas Mountain Race.
Sofiane uses a Niner Air9 RDO mountain bike for his offroad adventures and this bike has already taken some victories in 2019. The bike is built to be reliable with a Shimano SLX 10 speed groupset and rigid fork. Hunt 29 XC Wide wheels give a good balance of weight and durability and Schwalbe Racing Ralph tyres are fast-rolling. Luggage is taken care of by Apidura.
