Jamis Renegade Explore

The Renegade is ready for any adventure, no matter which Renegade you ride. The long and tall adventure geometry is designed specifically to ride comfortably all day on the road or in harsh conditions off-road. With disc brakes and the ability to mount multiple tire sizes, these bikes are ready to go just about anywhere. All you need is the desire to push, pedal and explore.

         “A fast gravel machine to win over true roadies.” – Outside Magazine

        • Mow-over pot holes or rip tight turns in the gravel with confidence. Front and rear thru-axles secure the wheels to the fork and frame giving a safer & stiffer ride. 
        • "Ride the frame, not the post" with stability-focused geometry: Enhanced Compliance Offset (ECO) providing a seriously comfortable and controlled ride without any compromise in lateral stiffness.
        • 22 Mounts allowing endless cargo configurations. 
        • More versatility with clearance for 700x42mm OR 650x47mm tires.  
        • ​Vibrations, rattles and jiggles are dampened with a larger bottom bracket and wider shell allowing for a stiffer construction, bowed carbon fork, clampless seat post & lowered seat stays.

        Frame Design

        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.

        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 tubes lengths, we take an all-inclusive look at each frames total configuration. Every SSD frame will also feature size-specific BB drop, rear center, fork offset/trail and SST technology.

        Disc Brakes

        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 hoodsthe power & modulation benefits of hydraulic disc brakes become readily apparent.

        MORE MOUNTS

        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 Rims

        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.
