WHY THRU AXLES?

Securing the rear wheel to the frame by threading a 12mm axle into the rear drop-outs is not only safer, it’s stiffer. The rear wheel tracks directly in line with the frame, for more precise handling, so you can go faster with more confidence. The increase in stiffness of a 15mm fork axle improves steering & handling significantly. It also puts less stress on the fork’s internals, improving fork durability and performance. The hub drop outs provide a self centering feature for the wheel for fast, easy installation.
44MM HEAD TUBES

Oversized 44mm head tubes, like tapered head tubes, offer many advantages impacting the handling and performance of the bike. Not only do they allow for the use of tapered steerer forks adding more stiffness, lighter weight and better tracking in rough terrain, but the larger diameter provides a better surface area to weld the main triangle tubes to.
REYNOLDS STEEL

Reynolds pioneered the techniques of making butted tubing around the turn of the century and their 531 manganese-molybdenum alloy tubing was the standard of excellence for many decades. The Jamis Dragon Series features Reynolds' modern 520 double-butted cromoly.
READY TO LOAD

The Dragonslayer and Dragonfly frames feature rear rack eyelets and enough cargo/water cage mounts for the option to load up all the gear you may possibly need out there. Full cable housing guides are used to ensure uninterrupted shifting performance when using a frame bag.
TUBELESS

Benefits of a tubeless set-up are reduced rotating weight and the ability to use lower inflation pressures for greater traction without the risk of pinch flats. WTB TCS rims feature a tubeless UST “On-Ramp” profile providing a consistent fit between the rim and the tire for easy installation and inflation.
OUTBOARD CHAINLINE

A 12x148 rear hub with 3mm offset chainrings minimizes the chance of chain to tire contact with short chainstays and “mid-fat” tires without compromising any pedaling efficiency to a wider q-factor.
PLUS

A 27.5x3" tire measures out to 29" diameter and 26x3" tire measures out to 27.5" diameter. Combining them with a 40mm rim, results in the ultimate combination of traction, roll-ver and versatility without being too heavy, too bouncy, too tall or feeling lethargic on the trail.
ADJUSTABLE SLIDING DROPOUTS

Our sliding dropouts allows for 20mm of adjustment. Slide your rear wheel back to increase clearance for larger tires or remove all those gears and shifters and simply tension your chain for a quiet single speed ride!

DRAGON SERIES

We wrote the book on off-road steel. Over 30 years of it. These Dragons might look like retro rigs, but there’s nothing outdated or outmoded about the way these bikes ride with 120mm travel forks from Fox and Rock Shox. The Dragon frame gives as much as it gets: the harder you push it, the better it feels.
