Jamis Trail X 3 Intro From Pawana Riders

The Jamis Trail X-series of hardtails is a cost-effective way to hit the backcountry and discover what mountain biking is all about.

The new Enduro II 7005 frame is engineered smart, using lightweight, oversized aluminum tubing to increase stiffness with ovalized cross-sections that enhance pedaling rigidity while improving vertical give for a smoother ride. You’ll have a hard time finding a lighter, better (or better looking) package for the money.

Reliable Shimano drivetrains provide motive power, starting with 21-speeds for the Trail XR and X1, moving up to 24 gears on the X2 and X3. Linear-pull brakes put impressive stopping power at your fingertips – upgraded to disc brakes on the X3! --letting you make the most from the grippy knobby tires on any surface.

Trail X-series bikes are versatile and well-equipped for easy campus cruising, in-town commutes and that first season or two of off-roading. They’re the perfect transition between the rider you are now and the rider you want to become.
