Jamis has offered up a sneak peak of what is to come for its model year 2017 bikes, lifting the lid on its revamped cyclocross and gravel-adventure bike line-ups.
The 2017 Nova Cyclocross series is lead by the Supernova Team with its Dyad Plus T700/FRP monocoque carbon fiber frameset including FEA optimized near net SPV molding process. American Classic Argent tubeless 15mm front/12mm rear thru-axle wheels with SRAM Force hydraulic disc brakes and SRAM Force 1 CX 11-speed 1x drivetrain round out the $4000 build.
The series also includes the Supernova Elite, which shares the identical frameset as the Supernova Team, at $2800, and the 6061 aluminum Nova Pro with a $1900. All three Jamis cyclocross models are expected in stock by late July.
Also targeted for early release are the Renegades, Jamis’ popular adventure line of road bikes. For 2017, the series will include five models: two carbon fiber, two steel and one aluminum. The carbon fiber models are lead by the Renegade Elite at $3900. It features an Omniad M30 monocoque frameset with near net molding process and new size specific design. It includes 12mm thru-axle front and rear, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano Ultegra 11-speed mechanical drivetrain. American Classic MTB RACE tubeless wheels paired with Clement X Plor MSO 36mm tires give this bike all the adventure capability that its category name implies.
Other Renegade models include the carbon fiber Renegade Expert with a $2700 price tag, the Reynolds 631 double-butted steel Renegade Exploit at $2100 and Reynolds 520 double-butted steel Renegade Expat at $122. Rounding out the line is the 6061 aluminum Renegade Exile with a MSRP of $800. All five models are expected in stock by early August. Several other early release Jamis models and categories will be announced within the next 30 days.
