The Highpoint A2 is a new model for 2019 from Jamis ost popular 29er and is a better choice than a dual-sport hybrid for multi-surface riding.
Lighter and much faster than 27.5+ Plus bikes on smooth terrain, the Dispatch is still capable of real mountain biking in the woods.
Equipped with Shimano Acera 2x9 drivetrain components the Dispatch avoids using a triple (three chainring) crankset.
Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide impressive stopping power, and the SR XCM fork has 100mm of suspension travel which is the perfect amount for light duty cross country riding.
