Jamis 2016 Ventura Renegade Expert.
Starting with a wide and consistent stack and reach range, we set out to design a frame that could handle on or off road conditions while maintaining a comfortable ride. As you start to review the geo chart you will noticed we have 3 different fork offsets, BB drops and rear center measurements. Add size specific tubing and 2 different sized rear triangles and you have what we feel is the perfect endurance geo for all sized riders. The reason for this is that we wanted the 48 and 61 to fit the rider correctly and make the geo changes needed to provide the perfect ride.
SST FOR THE RIGHT RIDE
Size specific tubing optimizes ride quality and assures the lightest possible weight for each frame size. Our 48, 51 and 54cm Renegade frames are designed with top and down tubes 10% smaller than on the 56, 58 and 61cm. The result is a bike that has consistent performance characteristics across the size range, offering a ride that is virtually tuned for each and every rider.
ECO FORK 15MM THRU-AXLE
ECO stands for Enhanced Compliance Offset. The ECO fork blades are swept forward a few millimeters to provide vertical compliance for a more comfortable and controlled ride without any compromise to lateral stiffness, thanks to the reinforcing rib on the inside of the fork legs. Integrating a 15mm thru-axle into the fork amplifies the benefits of the ECO design by reducing weight and resisting torsional flex due to disc brake forces.
142 X 12MM THRU-AXLE
Securing the rear wheel to the frame by threading it into the rear dropouts is not only safer, it’s stiffer. Increasing the rear axle diameter from 10mm to 12mm provides a stable platform for the disc braking forces and allows us to tune the rear seat stays for more compliance/comfort. You will appreciate this on your long days. The rear wheel tracks directly in line with the frame, for more precise handling, so you can go faster with more confidence. The 142mm hub dropouts provide a self-centering feature for the rear wheel for faster, easier installation.
With endurance geometry designed to go anywhere the only choice was disc brakes. We even took it up a step with both the Renegade Elite and Expert coming with Hydraulic brakes. With hydraulic disc brakes you will have the most consistent and confidence-inspiring braking available. Just think about jamming down hill on a rutted out fire road with your hands all over the hoods…the power & modulation benefits of hydraulic disc brakes become readily apparent.
BB386 EVO SHELL
The new BB386 EVO bottom bracket design takes the lighter, stiffer 30mm alloy spindle of the BB30 design, incorporates press fit bearing cups instead of direct fit bearings and marries it to a wider 86.5mm BB shell. All without changing Q-factor. Why a wider shell? It allows us to increase the diameter of our seat and down tubes at the BB shell a full 30%, for increased stiffness where you really need it. We can also optimize chainstay design with both increased diameters (stiffer!) and wider spacing (more tire clearance!)
WE ACE’ED IT
ACE is our Internal Cable Guide System that is companionable with mechanical or Di2 shifting as well as hydraulic or mechanical braking. To keep shifting and braking performing best in any & all conditions, we’ve routed all cables internally on the new Renegade and designed a completely enclosed BB guide to keep cables clean, assuring precise shifts and sure stops in all conditions. And if you want to shift electronically, we’ve got you covered. Incorporated into our internal cable guide system are a few extra cable fittings that make the Renegade Di2 compatible.
We should call them magic mounts. With a collection of fork and frame mounts you can easily choose to mount fenders or a rear carrier. This opens up options when the weather goes bad or can even turn Renegade into a commuter.
Tubeless and wider rims across the range provide great benefits on any terrain. The tubeless benefits are to help prevent flats with sealant as well as being able to adjust your tire pressure for the perfect ride. For example on dirt roads you may want to reduce the tire pressure to increase your contact patch for better grip without the worry of pinch flatting. The beauty of the wider rims effectively gives you a constant and wide tire surface yielding better handling, stability and confidence with plenty of surface grip for control.

TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
1. Shimano 11-Speed 105 is the Shimano work horse and incorporates many of the trickle down benefits that were developed for Dura-Ace 9000 series and integrated into Ultegra 6800 series. Reduced shifting effort, better braking from the hoods, more control based on better ergonomics and durability.
2. The Alex ATD470 rim with TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) features a tubeless ready rim with a reinforced rim bed to counter-act disc brake forces. This wheelset is ready for your next adventure.
3. Selle Royal has been a world-leading bicycle saddle brand for over 50 years. The handmade Seta S1 with neat Integrated Clip system is a lightweight high performance saddle with a flat-topped surface to improve flexibility, regardless of the rider’s seating position.
4. Clement has not only taken CX by storm, they are now focused on the Adventure market. The X’Plor USH is a 700 x 35 mm adventure tire USH is designed for mixed conditions. The combination of firm center ridge and diamond-shaped side knobs provide low rolling resistance and great cornering control.
