SUSPENSION

Every Explorer offers telesoping coil-spring suspension in the fork as well as in the seat pillar. The advantage is not just a more comfortable ride, but a ride that is much easier to control and is therefore safer.
VERSATILITY

But don’t let all this comfort talk fool you into thinking the Explorer has limited uses. While conceived to make cycling as comfortably fun as possible, the Explorer is capable of doing much more than keeping a new rider from hurting. Thanks to the full-range gearing of the drivetrain, the 2” foot-print of the tires and the shock absorption of the suspension fork.
SMOOTH ROLLING TIRES

Our Explorer tires have been designed to roll smoothly on pavement, but offer a large 1.95” footprint so that rides on park paths can be managed securely. The additional benefit of that big 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.
COMFORT SADDLE

Our super plush saddle features memory foam padding (Explorer 2) or extra high quality polyurethane padding (Explorer 1) for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type 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.
RIDE POSITION

A usual complaint from new riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically design our Explorers to remedy this. With extra long head tubes to push handlebar height up, shorter top tubes to pull handlebars closer to the saddle, 4-inch rise handlebars that sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle and long-quilled or angle-adjustable stems that allow for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each rider.
TWIST-SHIFTING GEARS

Many folks find throttle-style shifters much simpler to use than those that operate by thumb. There’s something intuitive about simply twsiting the inboard side of your handlebar grips to change the speed at which your pedaling. Which why our Explorers feature Grip Shift from SRAM or Revoshift from Shimano twist shifters.

EXPLORER SERIES

The Explorer has been one of our best-selling bikes, ever since it’s 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.
