Jamis Launches 2020 3VO Bikes Now With Top-Spec Carbon Offerings

It’s been just over one year since Jamis launched their Portal 130mm 29-inch and Hardline 160mm 27.5-inch bike models featuring the revolutionary 3VO suspension platform. As innovative additions to Jamis' full-suspension offerings, Portal and Hardline represented an evolution from well-seasoned single-pivot designs to an original, finely-tuned dual-link arrangement. As a 3VO bike progresses through its travel, the instant center (or virtual pivot) remains behind the bottom-bracket while tracing the chain line, resulting in a ride that completely isolates pedaling forces from bump forces. This attribute combined with a multi-stage leverage ratio produces a zero-compromise, exceptionally capable system.

At the one-year mark, response to Portal and Hardline from cycling media and riders alike has been overwhelmingly positive. “Riders are blown away by how well the bikes pedal while at the same time being fully capable and supple through all types of terrain” says Bryan Dubuc, Jamis Demo & Events Coordinator. Bryan heads the Jamis 3VO Demo Tour, which in 2019 included 10 marquee events and over 55 shop rides, placing more than 1,200 riders behind the handlebars of a Portal or Hardline.

For 2020 Jamis has taken the 3VO design a step further by adding carbon models to the mix. Their in-house design team has reduced frame weight by more than two pounds using Jamis’ proven Dyad Pro hi-modulus carbon as a frame material, marking a significant improvement to an already outstanding platform.

Both Portal and Hardline models will be available in three carbon and two aluminum price-points each, along with frameset options for custom builds. All models are in stock now and ready to ship.
