About the Jamis Dakar A2

Full suspension opens up a whole new world of speed and control off-road. Modernized with 27.5” hoops, this is the frame platform that’s won us numerous industry accolades and Bike of the Year awards. Perfect rigs for the experienced rider who is looking to upgrade to their first dual suspension or for new riders looking for a head start in performance.

The mp2 suspension system is active with a near vertical wheel axle travel path, plus excellent lateral & torsional stiffness for rear wheel tracking precision. Riding fast with control requires steering precision, which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening this area results in less wheel deflection, more wheel control. The Dakar’s chainstays are asymmetrical, with an elevated straight stay on the non-drive side and a dropped curved stay on the drive side. The drive side must be dropped & curved to clear the front derailleur and chain, but running the non-drive side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle laterally. There’s more tire clearance, too. Top-notch braking shouldn’t break the bank. Shimano’s hydraulic brakes offer the power, the smooth modulation and all-day, all-conditions reliability. The Dakars feature Monarch shocks that offer adjustable rebound damping and a single valve air spring . It’s light and easily adjusted to suit rider and riding style. The 1x drivetrain philosophy is to make it simpler, lighter and more durable. Specific chainring tooth profiles, clutch-type rear derailleurs and wide range cassettes are developed for an incredibly wide gear range and maximum control without the need to chain tensioning devices or guides.
