Jamis bicycles has a long history of innovating revolutionary bikes. This dates all the way back to 1979 with the introduction of the Earth Cruiser. The Earth Cruiser helped to spark the beach cruiser revolution. This revolution hasn’t stopped with Jamis, merely shifted focus. Today Jamis develops and produces top of the line Road and Mountain bikes. Leveraging their 30+ years of experience, Jamis is able to craft Race driven performance with trickle down for the average rider as well. Jamis has a goal to build the perfect bike, an impossible goal. To Jamis, it’s the only one worth doing.
The Jamis Dakar XCR Race is no exception to Jamis’ quest to build the perfect bike. Jamis takes advantage of proven technologies when crafting their frames. The Kinesium Alloy main triangle is no exception. Boasting 100mm travel with the mp4 linkage system, the XCR race is super stable and performance driven. The tapered headtube allows for a stiffer front end and thus a more responsive and stable ride. Asymmetrical chainstay, cartridge bearing pivots, and a Fox Shox RP2 BV shock & 10mm hardware round up the features that make this frame great.
A great suspension is what comprises a truly fantastic full suspension bike. The Jamis Dakar XCR Race is outfitted with Fox Racing Shox Fork and Rear shock. Fox has been an industry leader in suspension technology for many years. Fox has repeatedly set new standards for quality and how suspension works. The Fork is a Fox 32 FRL with a FIT damper. The fork features external rebound damping, lever actuated lock out, 32mm stanchions for increased stiffness, 15mm through axle, a tapered alloy steerer, and 100mm of travel. The Rear shock is a Fox Shox RP2 BV with boost valve. This rear shock boasts 100mm of travel and can take nearly anything you can throw at it.
Drivetrain is just as important as anything else, so it makes sense that Jamis has selected Shimano drivetrain. A Shimano XT M780 rear derailleur is matched up with a Shimano SLX M661 front derailleur. Shifters a very vital as well, so it makes sense that Jamis selected the Shimano SLX M660 Rapid Fire plus 10 speed trigger shifters. All of these components work in conjunction with the Shimano Hollowtech II crankset. This Shimano 2x10 drivetrain saves weight while offering a more versatile gear set.Claimed Weight: 27.00lbs Components:

Impressed with the build and geometry of this bike. Rides great with very little adjustment needed from the in-store build.
