2017 Jamis Ventura Comp
2017 Jamis Ventura Comp
A Winning Bike for Everyone
Our Ventura Series bikes have won Bicycling's coveted editors choice award numerous times. Which is why we offer the Race, Comp and Sport in both male and female specific packages.
Size Specific Frame Design
Size Specific Frame Deisgn (SSD) is the Jamis design philosophy and technique used to create the best possible riding bike for each size rider. Rather than limiting frame size variations to just different length top, seat and head tube lengths, we take an all-inclusive look at each frame's total configuration. Every SSD frame will also feature size-specific BB drop, rear center, fork offset/trail and SST technology.
The Disc Revolution is Here
We are all-in. Disc brake technology provides superior stopping and safer braking no matter the conditions. they offer increased control and better modulation as you vary from being at-speed to slowing down or stopping. They are significantly less affected by rain and wet conditions, and eliminate any rim heat build-up that can come with caliper brakes. Gone is the need to be concerned with carbon rim deformation. Whether the streets of NYC or LA, or long and winding open roads, the control and safety that comes with disc brakes will only heighten the experience that comes with riding a Jamis.
Gender Specific Geometry
Our Ventura Femme versions offer women's specific frame sizing ans geometry and component selection, including anatomically adjusted top tube lengths, head and seat tube angles, fork rakes, and women's specific saddles, with handlebar stem and crank lengths all dimensioned to optimally fit women for greater comfort and efficiency.
Versatile Performance Geometry
For a greater range of handlebar and rider positions, we've fitted the Ventura series frame with taller head tubes. Couples with a slightly longer wheelbase and relazed head tube angle, this results in confident, steering/handling and a more comfortable position for longer rides whether competitive or recreational.
Eco Carbon Fork
ECO stands for enhanced Complianct Offset. The ECO fork blades are swept forward a few millimeters to porvide vertical compliance for a more comfortable and controlled ride without any compromise to lateral stiffness, thanks to reinforcing rib on the inside of the fork legs.
Full Carbon Monocoque Forks
Manufactured by the same team that produces our Xenith Endura frames, the carbon forks on our Ventura Race and Comp models are formed as tru monocoque forks, in one continuous unit (steerer/crown/blades) for optimal strength and performance. Our competitors often use heavier 3-piece bonded carbon/alloy forks in the price range.
Tapered Head Tube and Steerer
By enlarging the bottom bearing of the head tube from 1 1/8" to 1.5", not only are head tube stiffness and steering precision increased, but we have sufficient room in the crown and steer tube, which yields exceptional compaction quality for increased strength and reduced weight.
