12MM THRU-AXLE

The 12mm Thru-Axle on our Renegades offer the benefit of increased stiffness and a quick release system without any downside. Designed specifically to counter-act the stress and pull of disc brake tourque, these forks won’t drift when brakes are applied.
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 frame’s total configuration. Every SSD frame will also feature size-specific BB drop, rear center, fork offset/trail and SST technology.
MORE MOUNTS

To make life easier we have repositioned each mount externally in a variety of easy-to-use locations. With a wide collection of fork and frame mounts you can now choose to mount fenders, rear carrier, low-rider front carrier (or two cages for water bottles/ storage) and three front triangle water bottles. This will open up the options wherever and whenever you chose to ride. Bad weather, commuting, trekking, touring – anything is possible.
TUBELESS MTB 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 23-24mm wider rims effectively gives you a constant and wide tire surface yielding better handling, stability and confidence with plenty of surface grip for control.
DROPPER POST READY

Just in case you want to continue to push the boundaries, we added cable routing capability for a 27.2mm dropper post. Carbon-made Elite and Expert models have routing for an internal post while the Exploit is fitted for external.
TIRE CLEARANCE

Renegade was designed to work well with any size from a 25 to a 40c tire. The 25c can be used for your endurance road bike set up, 28 if you want a little more meat and comfort. 33 for a CX race and then a 36 for a gravel ride. For the most grip and comfort for on/off road touring mount up a 40c tire. On our Steel and Alloy models we have extra room which will let you run a 700x42 or a 650x47.
PEDALING PLATFORM

After two years of testing and research we are able to provide even more comfort by reducing the seat post diameter on the carbon Renegade to 27.2mm. Through the combination of a new frame seat cluster and clamping configuration we were able to accentuate the benefits of top-down 27.2mm seatpost comfort while not compromising on side-to-side flex.
WE ACE'D 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
DISC BRAKES

With endurance geometry designed to go anywhere the only choice was disc brakes. Now the Renegade Elite, Expert and Exploit all come 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 BB 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!)
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.

THE WORLD'S LEADING ADVENTURE BIKES

Since 2014, the Jamis Renegade Series has been defining versatility in modern adventure bikes. The key is a finely tuned frame and fork design that maximizes handling and comfort whether you're road riding with 28c tires, adding a rack and fenders for commuting on 32's or exploring the backcountry wilderness fully loaded up on 40c rubber.

(Our steel and aluminum Renegades will accommodate up to a 700cx42/650x47c tire.)

 

Read on to understand Jamis' approach to adventure frame design and how it keeps the Renegade's superior ride quality consistent regardless of tire choice and frame size, on-road or off.

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 and consistent ride. As you start to review the geo chart you will noticed we have 3 different fork offsets, BB drops and rear center measurements depending on frame size. This is unique.

 

We set out to ensure every Renegade rider will experience the ultimate in adventure bike performance regardless of their frame size. Most of our competitors simply design one fork and strap it to every frame size. While this may work just fine for a bicycle that's designed to be ridden with a single tire size (think a road racing bike), it significantly impacts the handling and ride quality of an adventure bike when swapping out your 28c's for 32s, 40s or even 47c tires.

 

Add size specific tubing, where we vary the diameter of the frame tubing depending on frame size and 2 different sized rear triangles and you have what we feel is the perfect adventure geometry for all sized riders and the best riding adventure bike period.

ADVENTURE FRAME DESIGN

RENEGADE LEADS THE WAY: VERSATILITY

Renegade enables you to be a commuter in the morning, leader of the after-work group ride and take off for a 300-mile bikepacking expedition over the weekend. All with a single bicycle. With over 20 fork and frame mounts you can now choose to mount fenders, rear carrier, low-rider front carrier (or two cages for water bottles/storage) and three front triangle water bottles. Add clearance for 700cx42/650x47c tires on our steel and aluminum models, and it's clear the Renegade series is equipped to accommodate any adventure.

RENEGADE LEADS THE WAY:

ADVENTURE FORK DESIGN

Enhanced Compliance Offset (ECO) fork blades are swept forward several millimeters to provide extra vertical compliance for a more comfortable and controlled ride without any compromise in lateral stiffness. This is possible in part due to the ECO’s reinforcing rib on the inside of the fork legs. The integration of a 12mm thru-axle into our fork maintains all of the characteristics of our ECO design while adding the benefits of increased front-end stiffness and further reduced weight.

ENHANCED COMPLIANCE OFFSET

RENEGADE LEADS THE WAY: A FULL RANGE...IN A FULL RANGE OF SIZES

The Renegade is ready for any adventure, no matter which Renegade you ride. The long and tall endurance geometry is designed specifically to ride comfortably all day on the road or in harsh conditions off-road. The smooth ride of the full carbon fiber Renegades set the bar for how we designed the steel and aluminum bikes. With disc brakes and the ability to mount up to a 47c tire, these bikes are ready to go just about anywhere. All you need is the desire to push, pedal and explore. With a full range of sizes from 44 & 48cm with 650 wheels to 61cm there's always a Renegade designed just for you.

Load capacity for mounted racks = 25lbs front and 25lbs rear.
