Jamis Highpoint A1 (2020)

Designed with the same great riding frame geometry of the Jamis Komodo, the Highpoint is ready to tackle all aspects of trail riding.

The 5 inch travel suspension fork offers 25% more shock absorbing travel than cross country mountain bikes do at this price point, while maintaining the lighter and faster rolling 29 inch wheel size.

The front suspension is SR's XCR Air. Air sprung forks offer a smoother ride quality and are significantly lighter than the coil-spring design of the Rockshox at this level.

Components are Shimano's proven Deore mid-level in a 1x10 setup, two less gears than a Sram SX kit but made of aluminum, the SX parts have some plastic.

Brakes are from Tektro in a reliable low maintenance hydraulic two piston design.
