2017 Jamis Dakar XCT Team

This is the bike that teed it up and kicked it off way back in 2009. After all the nay-saying and “it’s not really exactly between 26” and 29”, the world is now clearly embracing the 27.5” wheel. And there’s no better place to start the group hug than on the rig that believed from the beginning and now has over 7 years of development and real-world riding and refinement to ensure it IS Best in Class.
