The Jamis Dragon Slayer 2016 is masterfully crafted from 4130 triple-butted chromoly steel, which provides an incredibly resilient and sturdy ride. With the addition of oversized 44mm head tubes, the Dragon Sport has adopted a tapered steerer fork to add more stiffness, reduce weight and improve tracking through bumpy terrain. For the drivetrain, the Dragon 29 Sport employs a keen Shimano component arrangement including an SLX Shadow Plus rear derailleur and a Deore front derailleur and SLX 2x10 shifter set, which provides a plethora of options for tackling undulating terrain. The Shimano M506 hydraulic disc brakes are paired with large 180mm (f) and 160mm(r) rotors to bring you to a quick stop, once you've decided to pack it in for the day.
Handling the front end, a Fox 34 Float Performance Series 27.5"+ keeps things plush and tracking smoothly when things get rowdy. The Ritchey Trail cockpit (stem, seatpost, handlebar) produces a rigid platform for exceptional control and response, while the WTB Scraper i45 TCS 27.5+ tubeless rims provide a consistent fit between the rim and tire for easy installation and inflation. The Dragon's proven geometry can gut out gritty climbs, yet it won't shy away from sketchy descents. Pair the Dragon Sport's bomb-proof frame with its clever build-group, and throw in the 27.5" wheel size and 120mm of travel on top, and you've got yourself the smile-machine you've always wanted.

I was initially worried it was going to be too big for me, and admittedly, I don't have really any standover. But it feels amazing to ride. It's a beast on the trail- just rolls over everything. I'm having a blast with it so far.
