The dual-sport DXT is a pumped-up, go-anywhere version of Jamis' Allegro fitness bike with a suspension fork for more comfort and control on slightly rougher terrain.
While not designed for mountain biking, dual sports include 700x42mm tires with a multi-surface tread made to ride easier dirt trails.
Like everything else in this price range the A3 model has basic 21 speed drivetrain with a triple crank and mechanical disc brakes.
Equipment good enough for occasional riding but not designed for more than that.
If you are riding more often for fitness or recreation we recommend taking a look at the better equipped DXT A2.
