Us cross racers are among an odd bunch. It's almost like we could never make up our mind between mountain biking or road riding. When we're really serious about getting faster, we can become the serious type that turns to various diet plans and training patterns. That is until we spot a magical pink box filled with adorable little donuts, or until we become a recipient of an obligatory beer-handoff. Yes, we have our flaws, but it's simply more fun that way. However, that doesn't mean our race machines need to be flawed. When you take a gander at the Jamis Nova Pro, you'd be hard-pressed to locate a fault.
Whether you're looking for a new bike to explore the stretches of your local fire roads, or gearing up to dominate the local cyclocross circuit, the Jamis Nova Pro Bike 2016 is a versatile, work-horse rig that leaves nothing but dust and mud ruts in its wake. For the CX rider to push the limits of their riding past the edge of normal, the Nova Pro CX1 gives you the tools to nurture your penchant for speed while conquering terrain you used to avoid on a road bike.
The Nova Pro frame is constructed from 7005 double-butted aluminum featuring tapered chainstays, butted seat stays, a PressFit 30 BB shell, and a portage formed top tube that is perfectly shaped and angled for comfortable shoulder carries. Jamis employs their Cross fork which uses a carbon composite 1-piece monocoque design and a 15mm thru-axle to apply exception stiffness to the front tend that counter-acts the stress and pull of disc brake torque.
It's now time to swing your leg over and get personal with the Nova Pro and its SRAM 1x11drivetrain. The Rival shifters and rear derailleur were born out of the SRAM 1x11 groups of their mountain bike lines. These technologies have now transferred to the road, gravel bike and cyclocross world, delivering the simplified function of a single ring upfront and the reduced weight that comes with eliminating a front derailleur.
Ritchey takes control of the cockpit with a 4-axis stem, Comp Logic Curve handlebars, and a Road aluminum seatpost, joined by a Selle Royal Seta saddle. The Nova Pro gallops on Alex ATD 470 tubeless compatible rims which are laced to Formula sealed bearing disc hubs. Jamis wrapped the Alex ATD 470 wheels with Clement Crusade MXP folding tires, keeping weight low and your traction high. When it comes time to acrobat your way around tight, tricky courses, the SRAM Rival Hydraulic disc brakes provide confidence and control in your stopping power as you make those awkward 180 turns.
It's safe to say the Jamis Nova Pro Elite is a "serious" machine for "serious" podium hunters, at a beer-hand-out price point.
