Jamis has expanded its lineup of hardtail plus bikes in both unisex and women’s-specific models. The new Dragon, Komodo and Eden Series bikes are designed for trail riding with 120 mm forks, slackened geometry, short rear ends and 3-inch tires.
The Dragon Series is made of Reynolds 520 steel and has been expanded to six models (four unisex and two women’s-specific). Dragonslayer will be available either in a 27plus or 26plus, while the women’s Dragonfly models move to 26plus.
The Dragonslayer sports a 68-degree headtube angle, 73-degree seat tube angle and 16.7 inch/425 mm chainstay length. The top-of-the-line bikes in the series will feature a FOX Rhythm 34 Float fork, WTB Scraper rims, a 1×11 Shimano SLX build and a KS eTen Integra dropper post.
All Dragon Series bikes feature adjustable sliding dropouts with 15 mm of range, thru axles front and rear, rear rack capabilities and multiple cargo/water bottle eyelets for bikepacking, plus oversize 44 mm head tubes, Boost hub spacing, tubeless wheelsets and internal dropper post routing.
The Jamis Komodo and Eden Series bikes are made from triple butted 6061 aluminum and feature Boost hub spacing, tapered head tubes, tubeless wheelsets and internal dropper post routing.
The women’s bikes have better standover clearance, come in smaller sizes—down to 14 inches—and are stocked with narrower handlebars and different saddles.
The steel models will range from $1,400 to $2,500. The aluminum bikes will range from $1,000 to $1,700. 2017 Jamis Plus bikes are expected in stock beginning at the end of September. All 2017 Jamis products including the new Plus bikes will be live and online with the 2017 Jamis website in mid-September.
