LESS WEIGHT, LESS WORK

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. Our Explorer models 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.

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.

COMFORT SADDLE

Our super plush saddle features memory foam padding (Explorer A1) or extra high quality polyurethane padding (Explorer A2) 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.

PUMP UP THE VOLUME

Our Explorer tires are ready for anything; they roll smoothly on pavement but offer a large 2.1” footprint and side knobs so that traction off the beaten path is never an issue. 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.

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 2.1” footprint of the tires and the shock absorption of the suspension fork.

COMFORT AND COMPETENCE

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.
