JAMIS DAKAR XCR 29 Comp BIKE 2014
A budget-friendly xC Machine
The aptly named XCR stands for cross-country race, and that's not something to take lightly. When it comes to connecting the dots from the starting gate to the finish line, the Dakar XCR 29er is itching to toe the line. The Dakar XCR 29er is an solid specimen of trailblazing XC race performance armed with the advantages of a full-suspension design. For the XC rider looking to grow the limits of their riding, the Dakar XCR gives you the tools to nurture your penchant for speed while conquering terrain you used to avoid on a traditional hardtail XC bike. Whether you're looking for a new bike to explore the stretches of your local trail system, or gearing up to test your limits at the regional race circuit, the Dakar XCR 29 is a versatile, and dependable rig that leaves nothing but a trail of dust and desire in it's wake.
The Dakar XCR 29 Comp's main frame, stays, and bell cranks are constructed from Kinesium triple-butted alloy, for a ride quality that is reassuringly strong and responsive. Jamis has made a number of refinements to the Dakar XCR frame, including 12 x 142mm thru-axle dropouts for faster rear wheel installation and a progressive geometry that instills confidence and harnesses power into speed. The Dakar XCR utilizes Jamis's fully-active mp4 XC suspension design, which has been optimized for cross-country performance, with travel narrowed down to a tautly sprung, hyper-efficient 100mm that delivers a slight rising leverage rate in the first 40% of travel, and then is linear though the next 60mm of travel for a firm, responsive pedaling platform that keeps that rear tire firmly planted for pedaling efficiency and grip, whether you're forging ahead on a climb or stretching your lead on a descent. Suspension duties in the rear are handled by a X-Fusion O2 RL shock that tames bumps and sudden shocks with precision. The Dakar XCR's plush front-end comes courtesy of the X-Fusion Slide 29 RL fork. This fork's 15mm thru-axle and tapered steerer offer a rock-solid front end that refuses to quit so you can keep cranking on down the trail, dominating rock gardens and clearing sketchy terrain without hassle.
Jamis outfits the Dakar XCR 29 Comp with a refined, but value-packed component package that is both reliable and precise for consistently dependable performance from the local trail to race day. A mix of SRAM's X7 and X9 2x10 component groups is the central theme of the Comp build, and the combination of SRAM S1000 cranks, X7 shifters, Avid Elixir 5 brakes, and an X9 rear derailleur keeps things operating with smooth and responsive performance that will inspire you to chase more miles up and down the trail. The Dakar XCR 29 Comp rolls on a set of Mavic Crossride 29 wheels wrapped in the grippy, but fast, Geax Saguaro tire for a combination that offers a classy blend of strength, reliability, and trailblazing speed. The Crossride are lace to the hubs with straight-pull bladed spokes for increase stiffness and reduced aerodynamic drag. Avid Elixir 4 hydraulic brakes give you plenty of power you'll need to stop on a dime or modulate braking when navigating a tricky section. Jamis decks out the cockpit with a WTB Volt saddle paired with a mix of Ritchey Comp handlebars, stem, and seatpost, ensuring that mission control is dialed and ready for blast-off.
