JAMIS DAKAR XCR 29 Pro BIKE 2014
XC performance and power in a sensible package
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, there's simply nothing faster than a Dakar XCR 29er. The Dakar XCR 29er is an impressive specimen of trailblazing XC race performance armed with the advantages of a full-suspension design. For the XC rider looking to push the limits of their riding past the edge of normal, 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 dominate the regional race circuit, the Dakar XCR 29 is a versatile, drool-worthy rig that leaves nothing but a trail of dust and desire in it's wake.
The Dakar XCR 29 Pro's main frame, stays, and bell cranks are constructed from full high modulus carbon, for a ride quality that is reassuringly stiff yet responsive. Jamis has made a number of refinements to the Dakar XCR frame, including a sleeker, lightweight shock mount bracket, 12 x 142mm thru-axle dropouts for faster rear wheel installation and a new 3-piece welded main pivot yoke with 25% larger chainstays so the rear wheel tracks perfectly with the front. 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 Fox Float CTD Performance Series shock that tames bumps and sudden shocks with precision. The Dakar XCR's plush front-end comes courtesy of the Fox 32 Float 29 CTD Evolution Series 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 Pro 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 Shimano's SLX and XT 2x10 component groups is central theme of the Pro build, and the combination of SLX cranks, shifters, brakes, and an XT rear derailleur keeps things operating with smooth and responsive performance that will inspire envy up and down the trail. The Dakar XCR 29 Pro rolls on a set of WTB Frequency i19 29" TCS tubeless wheels wrapped in the grippy, but fast, Geax Saguaro tire for a combination that offers a classy blend of strength, weight savings, and trailblazing speed. The Frequeny i19 rims are ready to be set up tubeless if you choose, and of course, work just fine with traditional tubed tires if you're not ready to make the transition. Shimano M615 hydraulic brakes give you all the power you 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 Pro handlebars, stem, and seatpost, ensuring that mission control is dialed and ready for blast-off.>
