There’s a magic to hardtails not everyone can appreciate. For one thing, hardtails favor the rider over the hardware—and that doesn’t sit too well with people who’d rather buy their speed than earn it with trail time and hours in the saddle. And for another, hardtails are about minimalism and finesse. Yeah, there’s a lot of tech in our hardtails, but it takes a deft touch to see and realize their potential, and while that kind of talent isn’t rare it’s not commonplace, either.
We do everything we can to maximize that feeling and that’s why our bikes are some of the most talked-about rigs at trailheads the world over. Nothing rails singletrack like a Jamis—we earned that reputation with decades of refinement. Our geometry’s spot on, giving you point-and-go handling, maximum climbing traction and unbeatable trail feel. And unlike some guys who use the same numbers across the board, we tweak our angles and dimensions to account for different sizes and frame materials, so you get that same signature ride and feel no matter how tall you are, or what Jamis you ride.
