Jamis Bikes returns all set in proving that trickle-down technology is still a good thing with their new 2011 Jamis Trail X1 MTB for women.

While the bike shares semblance with other existing bikes from Jamis such as the Enduro and the Dakota, the bike maker assures fans of the brand, particularly the women riders that this will be a unique bike featuring a sloping Y-shaped top tube and great parts to boot. The Jamis Trail X1 definitely delivers both strength and lightness.

It uses an Endura III frame design with a 6061 aluminum main tube and extended seat mast with additional braces to add for extra support and a special derailleur hanger. The bike also sports an RST 191-T alloy crown with front and rear derailleurs from Shimano. The X1 has a total of 21 gears.

The components included in this women’s bikes are Shimano Acera ST-EF51 EZ-Fire…

Jamis reinforces the idea of steel in 2011 as a steady and most capable platform when it comes to road bikes with the Satellite. Using Reynolds 520 double-butted chromoly main tubes, the Satellite is further made rider-specific with Jamis’ SST tubing diameters.

The steel frame is matched with a full carbon composite fork with forged alloy dropouts and single eyelets. The 2011 Satellite features a sloping top tube design and double-tapered cromo stays. The 1 1/8″ headset houses NVO components, Ritchey handlebar and stem with a Jamis bar tape and Touring Sport saddle and satin steel rails.

The rest of the classic design is Shimano Tiagra derailleurs, SRAM cassette and an FSA Vero triple crankset with sealed cartridge bottom bracket. For stopping power, the 2011 Satellite has Tektro dual-pivot calipers with Shimano Sora levers. Keeping your ride running smooth are Mavic wheels, Formula alloy hubs and Vittoria Zaffiro tires.

The steel wonder…
