Jamis didn’t have much to say about this prototype TT bike sitting front and center in their booth, but the intent is obvious – to make the Silber Pro Cycling Team go faster. As much as possible, the bike integrates components to keep them out of the wind stream. Brakes are tucked and covered, and the handlebar integrates into the stem as a single piece to create a much smoother front end and easy cable hiding…

Brake cables remain hidden inside the bar and stem completely, while shift levers duck out of the extensions and directly into the stem. SRAM’s eTap system would mean zero visible cables.

Front brakes weren’t installed on this prototype, but all you’d really see are the pads. The caliper arms are hidden behind the fairing. They kept the rim brakes because, for now, the UCI still hasn’t officially made disc brakes legal and their team needs to have this on the starting ramp for major races.

Another fairing hides the rear caliper. Public retail release of the bike is TBD, it’s still in testing.
