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
Laser’s mini MX-Moto design offers plenty of stand-over clearance for young riders and a head-turning, two-tone paint finish that will be the talk of the neighborhood.
The over-sized blades and leading axle dropout of the Laser fork assures it will be up to the task of getting there and back safely.
If a steel or alloy part is not painted or anodized, we protect it with a black electro-plating which enhances the corrosion resistance of that part. The satin sheen of the finish looks good too.
The Laser’s full-length & full ring-wrap chainguard keep clothes & legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain.
Every 16” Laser offers stabilizing training wheels that assist the young rider in learning how to pedal, steer and balance a bike for the first time. The training wheel support struts attach securely both to the rear hub axle and the frame itself so that the training wheels don’t rotate out of plane with the rear wheel, preventing tips or spils.
