Jamis Dakar AMT 650 Expert Bike 2015

An all-mountain full-suspension work horse that’ll show you a goodtime

A shapeshifter of sorts, the Jamis Dakar AMT blurs the lines between trail, all mountain enduro, and gravity. With the AMT, Jamis built a 150mm travel rig with progressive mp4 Trail suspension that makes it easy to efficiently ride uphill as well as aggressively downhill. The Jamis Dakar AMT has been described as “an XCT on steroids.” The AMT is surprisingly light weight and amazingly competent due to the ribbed and boxed tubing shapes, tapered head tube, 10mm shock hardware, asymmetrical stays, and thru axles.

The heart of the AMT is the triple-butted 7005 alloy frame which is both stiff and rugged yet, can tame trail vibrations like a champ, thanks to the 150mm of active travel which feeds off of the mp4 linkage design. The Dakar AMT is outfitted with a pair of FOX suspension components. The FOX 34 Float fork allows the rider 3-position compression and lock-out, for a truly customized ride. The FOX Float CTD rear shock rounds out the suspension package. Together the front and rear shock work seamlessly together to provide a plush ride that will comfortably guide you over the hills and through the woods, all the way to grandmother’s house for a frothy beverage.

WTB Frequency Race i25 27.5 wheels are resilient and wide to help keep the bike grounded, cornering responsive, and rolling resistance keen. The rock-solid SRAM X9 drivetrain includes shifters that communicate almost telepathically to the X9 front and rear derailleurs, ensuring quick, precise shifting. A SRAM S1400 GXP crankset provides the power center for the AMT, delivering stroke after stroke of powerful pedal fury. SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes provide the kind of control you need to tame the beast on quick descents and unsteady terrain. Like a toy in a cereal box, the Dakar AMT Expert comes with a KS Supernatural dropper post which allows on-the-fly height adjustability with the flick of a switch. Then there’s the WTB Volt saddle which delivers all manner of on-the-bike comfort, so you can ride harder and farther.

  • 12x142mm Thru axles deliver more torsional stiffness which equates to a more responsive ride quality
  • SRAM X9 drivetrain is durable and reliable

Purple peat eater!
Bought this untested and unridden at my own risk and have been very pleased with the performance so far. Purple caught my eye to be honest, but looking deeper the build could not be beat for the (sale) price. Geometry was right where I wanted it so I went for it. This bad boy does as described - goes up just as well as it goes down. FAST on the flats, very nimble in all cases on the 650b wheels. Jenson did very well in getting it to me quickly for the first of a few fall trips as well - with no added cost to expedite! Good buying experience and great product!

Where does the weight come from? Seems like 32lbs is kinda heavy.
axld on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The weight difference in this bike compared to the pro is due to the 2x10 gearing and added derailleur. Also the bike is equipped with flox float shocks and they weight a little more than the rockshox pike. my wife and I have both the expert and pro and they are both great bikes. The 32lbs isn't bad and you couldn't tell much difference between her expert and my pro. I'd have to say I like her fox shocks more than mine. I did a 1x11 conversation on the expert and got it down to 30lbs.
