Press Release: Jamis Bikes
It’s been just over one year since the launch of the Portal 130mm 29” and Hardline 160mm 27.5” bike models featuring the revolutionary 3VO suspension platform. As innovative additions to our full-suspension offerings, Portal and Hardline represented an evolution from well-seasoned single-pivot designs to an original, finely-tuned dual-link arrangement. As a 3VO bike progresses through its travel, the instant center (or virtual pivot) remains behind the bottom-bracket while tracing the chain line, resulting in a ride that completely isolates pedaling forces from bump forces. This attribute combined with a multi-stage leverage ratio produces a zero-compromise, exceptionally capable system.
For 2020 we've taken the 3VO design a step further by adding carbon models to the mix. Our in-house design team has reduced frame weight by more than 2 pounds using Jamis’ proven Dyad Pro hi-modulus carbon as a frame material, marking a significant improvement to an already outstanding platform.
Both Portal and Hardline models will be available in three carbon and two aluminum price-points each, along with frameset options for custom builds. All models are in stock now and ready to ship.
