Starting with a wide and consistent stack and reach range, we set out to design a frame that could handle on or off-road conditions while maintaining a comfortable ride. As you start to review the geo chart you will notice we have 3 different fork offsets, BB drops, and rear center measurements. Add size-specific tubing and 2 different sized rear triangles on our carbon models and you have what we feel is the perfect adventure geo for all sized riders. The reason for this is that we wanted the 44 and 61 to fit the rider correctly and make the geo changes needed to provide the perfect ride.
Size Specific Design (SSD) is the Jamis design philosophy and technique used to create the best possible riding bike for each size rider. Rather than limiting frame size variations to just different length top, seat and head tubes lengths, we take an all-inclusive look at each frame’s total configuration. Every SSD frame will also feature size-specific BB drop, rear center, fork offset/trail, and SST technology.
Enhanced Compliance Offset (ECO) fork blades are swept forward several millimeters to provide extra vertical compliance for a more comfortable and controlled ride without any compromise in lateral stiffness. This is possible in part due to the ECO’s reinforcing rib on the inside of the fork legs. The integration of a 12mm thru-axle into our fork maintains all of the characteristics of our ECO design while adding the thru-axle benefits of increased front-end stiffness and further reduced weight. Win-win.
With adventure geometry designed to go anywhere, the only choice was disc brakes. Now the Renegade Elite, Expert, Escapade and Exploit all come with hydraulic brakes. With hydraulic disc brakes, you will have the most consistent and confidence-inspiring braking available. Just think about jamming down hill on a rutted out fire road with your hands all over the hoods…the power & modulation benefits of hydraulic disc brakes become readily apparent.
To make life easier we have repositioned each mount externally in a variety of easy-to-use locations. With a wide collection of fork and frame mounts, you can now choose to mount fenders, rear carrier, low-rider front carrier (or two cages for water bottles/ storage) and three front triangle water bottles. This will open up the options wherever and whenever you chose to ride. Bad weather, commuting, trekking, touring – anything is possible.
Tubeless and wider rims across the range provide great benefits on any terrain. The tubeless benefits are to help prevent flats with sealant as well as being able to adjust your tire pressure for the perfect ride. For example, on dirt roads, you may want to reduce the tire pressure to increase your contact patch for better grip without the worry of pinch flatting. The beauty of the internal 23mm wider rims effectively gives you a constant and wide tire surface yielding better handling, stability, and confidence with plenty of surface grip for control.
Just in case you want to continue to push the boundaries, we added cable routing capability for a 27.2mm dropper post. Carbon-made Elite and Expert models have routing for an internal post while the Escapade and Exploit are fitted for external.
After two years of testing and research, we are able to provide even more comfort by reducing the seat post diameter on the carbon Renegade to 27.2mm. Through the combination of a new frame seat cluster and clamping configuration, we were able to accentuate the benefits of top-down 27.2mm seatpost comfort while not compromising on side-to-side flex.
