TAKING IT TO THE LIMIT
All our frames and forks are tested continually to meet or exceed (in some cases, well exceed) EN standards 14764, 14765, 14766 and 14781 as well as the new ISO 4210 standards. We conduct these tests at our frame manufacturing facilities, but we also use EN accredited testing laboratories such as Intertek and SGS to verify the results of our own tests. If these tests aren’t telling us everything we want to know about our bikes, we increase the loads and cycles, or we determine another way to test. Where current hydraulic testing machines, jigs and hardware aren’t up to the task of emulating some of the forces and impacts our bikes might be subject to, we’ve designed our own.
We relentlessly cycle test for fatigue from pedaling and torsional forces on every single frame size, with deflection tests for stiffness at every point of the frame. Brutal impact tests with massive weights dropped on fixed frames or forks are performed. Then reversed, with weights attached to the frame, the frame hoisted to a given height depending upon product type, then released.
This destructive testing is enormously instructive and important. And it is in continual process. But it’s our ongoing non-destructive testing of frames and forks fresh off the factory floor that’s just as vital.
For our carbon fiber frames, EVERY frame is weighed to make sure it’s neither resin rich nor resin deficient. We also measure the stiffness of each frame in 6 critical areas as a check on lay-up production. Each deflection test must fall within 5% of the standards our machine and field-testing have established. This weighing and stiffness deflection testing guarantees every single frame we produce meets all Jamis manufacturing protocol and will
deliver the ride qualities we defined and demand.
TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Capri’s swooping frame design has a purpose other than great looks: with 24” wheels this bike offers a low standover and low center of gravity for stable, secure riding and control. We’ve even increased the wheelbase length over our 20” mountain bike to offer even greater stability, security and comfort.
A seven-speed drivetrain is enough for any girl to learn how to shift and master. It’s also enough gearing to get around the neighborhood comfortably.
Which is why we spec just one single chainring in front: to simplify shifting. We top it off with a full-wrap chainguard to keep the chain in place and clothes & legs out of the chain’s way.
Shimano’s Revoshift twist shifters and Shimano rear derailleur are kid friendly & easy to shift.
Our pedals offer a non-slip insert that keeps feet and shoes in full contact even when wet for safe & secure pedaling.
Every Capri comes equipped with a kickstand so parking doesn’t result in gouges or scratches and an unhappy new bike owner.
