Jamis

Ventura Sport

Available In-Store Only

Our Ventura bikes borrow heavily from the race-proven geometry of our Xeniths and Icons to help keep you in front on the local Saturday ride. But we ve softened the edges of that geo just a bit for a more comfortable and confident ride so you can head out again on Sunday, still fresh and ready to hammer your buddies one more time.

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.

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 a riding a Jamis.

Ride Tuned Seatstays

Having chainstay-mounted disc brakes frees the seatstays from their traditional role of brakes reinforcement. So we can focus on designing and tuning the seatstays for their primary purpose: ride compliance and torsional stability.

Gender Specific Geometry

Our Ventura Femme versions offer womens specific frame sizing & geometry and component selection, including anatomically adjusted top tube lengths, head & seat tube angles, fork rakes & womens specific saddles, with handlebar, stem and crank lengths all dimensioned to optimally fit women for greater comfort & efficiency

Compact Crankset

FSAs compact crankset concept is revolutionary: a 34T inner chainring offers a 15% lower gear ratio than traditional 39T double ringed road cranks, but the 50T outer loses only 6% off the top end compared to a 53T traditional outer. You get the hill climbing capability of a triple, yet less weight than a standard double.

Ritchey Components

Weve been specifying Ritchey parts on our bikes since 1986. Not just because Tom Ritcheys designs are innovative and light, but because we know we can count on them to hold up. Ritchey testing standards are tough. Parts must pass a fatigue cycle testing standard that is at least the European CEN standard. The same stringent standards apply to impact testing as well. Once products have cleared machine testing, prototype samples endure rigorous use by both amateur and professional riders alike around the world. By the time we put these parts on our bikes, they have passed a global testing and approval process second to none.

Versatile Performance Geometry

For a greater range of handlebar and rider positions, weve fitted the Ventura series frames with taller head tubes. Coupled 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.

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 to produce a truly hollow fork from the dropout, up through the crown and steer tube, which yields exceptional compaction quality for increased strength and reduced weight.

ECO Carbon Fork

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.

Full Carbon Monocoque Forks

The carbon forks on our Ventura Race, Comp and Sport 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.
