Jamis Ventura Sport: Fit For Fast Lightweight aluminum alloy construction-pro-level technology just a few years ago-and smart component choices make our Ventura series a perfect choice for sagged multi-day adventures and long weekend rides, which is why you’ll see them underneath happy riders on gran fondos, at RAGBRAI, on multi-day fundraisers and in the pages of Bicycling Magazine winning yet another of their coveted Editor’s Choice awards.
The Ventura’s handling is impeccable-stable, easy to ride, with just a hint of edginess that makes slinging into corners a joy. The Ventura frame’s aluminum alloy main triangle is extremely light, and if you opt for the Ventura Race you’ll even get a carbon fiber monostay rear end that sheds a few grams and really smooths the ride out for those extra-long rides. Compact cranksets give you double-chainring styling and weight, but with a 15% lower low gear for climbing power, trading away just 6%
off the top end-so you get triple-ring help on the hills without resorting to the heft and complexity of triple rings. Pack in some miles this season, and make them easy on yourself with Ventura’s simple approach, making mileage easy.
