COMFORT AND COMPETENCE The Explorer has been one of our best-selling bikes, ever since its introduction in 1982. Originally designed as a mountain bike, the Explorer has since evolved into a very practical and very comfortable sport comfort bike. Inspired in part by our Hudsons and Citizens, without sacrificing the versatile on or off-road competence of the original Explorer, the newest generation Explorer is all about getting the most fun out of the ride, in STYLE, with performance and comfort features that make getting around so effortless it hardly feels like exercise. LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM When it comes to recreational riding on a so-called comfort bike, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. Explorers are built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing, resulting in a bike that is as easy to ride as it is to load onto a vehicle. - Lightweight aluminum frame, with comfortable upright ride position - Hi-tensile unicrown fork - Alloy 36H rims and stainless steel spokes - Shimano EZ-Fire Plus, 21-speed shifting - Forged alloy crankset with integrated chainguard - ProMax alloy direct-pull brakes with Shimano levers - Alloy micro-adjust seat post - Jamis Comfort with memory foam and bumper springs
Think of our Hudson as part Explorer and part Earth Cruiser. Capable but cool. Casual but on it. We blended the flowing curves and shaped tubes of seemingly disparate platforms like our carbon Dakota 29’ers and our aluminum DXT’s and came up with a smart frame design that rides comfortably, casually and efficiently while making a bold statement all at the same time. Hudson Lite When it comes to recreational riding on a so-called comfort bike, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. Which is why the Hudson Sport is built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying large volume tires and lengthening the chainstays and wheelbase for a stretch-limo sort of ride. Easy Rider Specially designed for flat-footed starts and stops. With your weight evenly distributed over the crank for comfortable and efficient pedaling on the saddle or off. The Hudson’s laid back seat tube and lowered bottom bracket height allows riders to position their saddles for efficient leg extension and still easily reach the ground while seated for balance when stopped. The longer chainstays and wheelbase in tandem with the lower center of gravity offers a very smooth, stable ride. Step Right In Our step-through version is exceptionally easy to mount thanks to the low BB DROP and super-low position of the S-bent top tube. No more swinging a leg over the rear wheel, or pulling a knee up to the chest to step over the top tube to mount a bike. Get Fit All frame sizes offer an extra-long head tube and hi- rise handlebars for a comfortable, upright ride position. Where's The Other Brake Lever? The SureStop braking system simplifies stopping by requiring only one brake lever to operate both front & rear brakes. It makes riding safer too by reducing the risk of front wheel lock-up. SureStop uses the momentum of the rear wheel to actively modulate the front brake, enabling smooth, controlled stopping. With only one hand! Best In Class Comfort Our super-plush saddle features Memory Foam padding for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-like top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs also help to soak up road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Pump Up The Volume Our Hudson tires are ready to roll, coming in a tall 27.5” diameter with a bump-chewing 2.35” width. The big benefit of that footprint is larger air volume in the tire and tube, which results in lower air pressure for a more comfortable ride than tires with smaller volumes and higher air pressures. Clean And Simple The Hudson’s alloy crankset features an outer-ring chainguard, with another full-length chainguard running the length of the chain from seatstay to chainring. So socks, slacks, skirts and dresses are well-protected from the chain. - 6061 TIG-welded aluminum frame - Hi-tensile unicrown fork - Alex DC25 alloy double-wall wheel set - 7-Speed Shimano Altus components
