The Renegade series gets upgraded and updated for 2020 and the C1 model is the top of the line.
Built around a high-performance Omniad M30 carbon fiber frame with Jamis' distinctive adventure geometry, offering extreme responsiveness and a smooth ride on any road (or dirt, or gravel) surface.
It is one of the first bikes on the market equipped with Shimano's newest components, the gravel bike specific GRX group which provides both better performance and greater durability off pavement than the equivalent road components.
The wheelset is outstanding. Stan's $679 Crest MK3 wheelset is actually an XC mountain bike racing wheelset, superlight at just 1592 grams for the pair, and more than capable of taking any bike packing and off-road adventure you might throw at them.
Weighing in just 18.5 lbs in most sizes if set up tubeless, the Renegade C1 is absolutely one of the best production gravel bikes on the market today.
