24-Inch (7+ yr. old)
Jamis' lightweight and durable aluminum X.24 frame is easier to pedal than steel and it's spec'd with a replaceable rear derailleur hanger for increased frame longevity. Disc brakes provide super-responsive stopping power so kids feel secure. That suspension fork isn't just for cool looks. It's 45mm of bump-eating travel means greater control and safety for young riders. Compared to bigger 26” wheeled bikes, the smaller diameter 24” wheels and shorter 12” frame of the X.24 provides more standover clearance and a lower center of gravity for enhanced control and safety, so young aspiring mountain bikers can learn to ride both on and off road comfortably, securely and safely. The double chainring crankset offers increased gear range (14-speeds) with an alloy outer rock guard to protect the chainrings from contact with curbs or logs. It helps keep pants and legs clean too! Bolt-on hubs and seat post clamps ensure that wheels and seats remain securely and safely attached to the frame and fork.
The Capri 2.4's swooping frame design has a purpose other than great looks: with 24” wheels this bike offers a low standover and low center of gravity for stable, secure riding and control. Jamis increased the wheelbase length over their 20-inch mountain bike to offer even greater stability, security, and comfort. A seven-speed drivetrain with Shimano's Revoshift twist shifters is easy to learn how to shift and master and is enough gearing to get around the neighborhood comfortably. Just one chainring in front simplifies shifting, too. There's a full-wrap chainguard to keep the chain in place and clothes and legs out of the chain's way, and Jamis pedals offer a non-slip insert that keeps feet and shoes in full contact even when wet for safe and secure pedaling. Every Capri comes equipped with a kickstand to protect the bike from the typical dump-n-run parking damage— prevention that makes for a much happier new bike owner!
Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike fit. We focus on designing frames with low stand-overs to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth-bike-appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal. - Enduro design, 6061 aluminum frame - Unicrown, 6061 aluminum fork - Alloy 36H black anodized wheel set - 7-speed Shimano Tourney components
