2017 Jamis Ventura Race
2017 Jamis Ventura Race
A Winning Bike For Everyone
Our ventura series bikes have won bicycling's coveted Editor's Choice Awars 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 design )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 length, with take an all0inclusive look at each frame's total configuration. Everyssd 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 winding open roads, the control and safety that comes with disc brakes will only heighten the experience that come with riding a Jamis.
Gender Specific Geometry
Our Ventura Femme versions offer women's specific frame sizing and geometry and component selection, including anatomically adjusted top tube lengths, head and seat tube angles, fork rakes, and women's specific saddle, 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 relaxed 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 Compliance Offset. THe ECO fork blades are swept forward a few millimeters to provide veritval compliance for a more comfortable and controlled ride without an compromise to lateral stiffness, thanks to the reinforcing rib on the inside of the fork legs
Full Carbon Monocoque Forks
Manufactured by ht esame team that produces Xenith Endura frames, the carbon forks on our Vntura Race and Comp models are formed as true 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 this 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
