2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Bikes Part Two

Jamis Xenith T $2,500

The Jamis Xenith T offers all the essentials of an outstanding triathlon bike for athletes looking to get the most out of their purchase. The bike’s tube shapes are airfoils certified by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, so you know that the Xenith T will be lethal in the wind. The front brake is tucked into a large, bulbous cavity at the back of the fork. The Profile Design T2 aerobar allows for a good amount of adjustability, so athletes will be able to easily make small changes to their position. The 78-degree seat tube angle allows for a textbook triathlon position because it helps position a rider far forward relative to the crankset. Jamisbikes.com
