We wrote the book on off-road steel. Over 30 years of it. These Dragons might look like retro rigs, but there’s nothing outdated or outmoded about the way these bikes ride with 120mm travel forks from Fox and Rock Shox. The Dragon frame gives as much as it gets: the harder you push it, the better it feels.
If you thrive on connection to the trail, if you live for the flow of a screaming descent -- Komodo will take you there without the added weight and complexity of dual suspension. This is an all-the-time trail hardtail with slack head angles plus 5” of fork travel for high-speed handling, robust frame tubes and thru-axles for big landing durability, and 27.5” wheels for smooth roll-over and agility.
Want a bike more capable than you are? This is the one. Nemesis is the perfect XC race weapon or 12-hour marathon bike. The 27.5” wheel size is not a compromise between 26” or 29”: it’s the best of both worlds. It rails singletrack, sticks to the trail on descents and climbs, excels on hardpack and in loose stuff, floats over trail chatter, you name it. It’s the bike you never knew you always wanted. Available in 5 models for 2016 - 3 carbon fiber and 2 alloy.
These may be the most affordable 29’er in our stable, but there’s nothing entry-level about the performance of these bikes. We’ve taken the frame styling of our popular Trail X-series bikes and married it to our proven Dakota 29 geo. Best-in-Class performance and Big Hoops doesn’t have to mean Big Bucks and the Durango Expert, Comp and Sport prove it.
Trail X Series
Building great recreational-level bikes that ride much like (and look a lot like) our hi-end bikes is a passion at Jamis. And no bikes showcase our commitment to do just that better than these bikes. The Trail X chassis emphasizes all-day performance with quick handling that’s not overly darty. But make no mistake, if you want to throw down, the Trail X is more than able to keep up thanks to 27.5” wheels, precise shifting drivetrains and incredibly powerful disc or linear pull brakes.
