Jamis XTrail Mountian Bike Review


Trail X2’s frame is made of lightweight-but-strong 7005 series aluminum tubing, featuring over-sized, ovalized & tapered tubing for increased frame strength

The sloping Enduro II frame design is offered in 9 (!) sizes, assuring the best possible customer fit for optimal handling and enhanced comfort

Our smallest 12″ frame size is especially suitable for junior riders. This frame size can comfortably & safely fit taller kids as young as 9 or 10

With the Trail X’s larger diameter 26″ wheels and 300mm seat post with quick-release clamp, this bike will last them for years

The X2’s suspension fork delivers 60mm of coil-sprung telescoping travel with a lightweight alloy crown and stout 28mm steel sliders for stiffness, strength and a straight-tracking front wheel

Weinmann’s ZAC 19 double-wall rims are light-but-durable and on the Trail X2 the strength of the box-shaped double-wall rim profile is a disc-brake must.

Bikes equipped with disc brakes in this price range are often spec’ed with weaker singlewall rims. Disc brake torque passed through the spokes can pull nipples right out of the spoke bed of a single-wall rim. Read this and know: if you want the security and power of disc brakes, make sure your rim is at least double-walled

Tektro’s IO disc brakes stop great in all conditions & increase wheel longevity by eliminating the rim sidewall from the brake system

The X2’s 21-speed Shimano EZ-Fire Plus drivetrain features a Shimano Acera rear derailleur, alloy 42/34/24 crankset & 13-28 indexed freewheel for smooth shifting, easy climbing & secure descents

Aheadset’s patented threadless steering system not only saves weight, but pre-loading the headset bearings for optimal steering precision is much easier than on standard threaded headsets

The 26 x 1.95″ XC knobbies on our Trail X-series bikes are from the same manufacturer that produces Maxxis tires: one of the most respected names in off-road rubber in the business

The Trail X-series broad-based ATB saddle with front & rear protective guards offers plenty of comfort, durability & style
