Slidepad simplifies stopping by using only one lever to operate both front and rear brakes. By smartly using the momentum of the rear
wheel to actively modulate the front brake, Slidepad enables smooth, controlled stopping with only one hand.
While tests show that an experienced rider using a two-lever braking system can stop in approximately 11.3% shorter distance than on a
single-lever Slidepad system, the reality is that many casual riders often do not fully understand which brake lever to utilize in different
situations, or do not know how to properly modulate front and rear brakes. These riders tend to rely on their rear brake exclusively over
their front brake, and in these instances, Slidepad stops in 46% LESS distance than when using the rear brake only. It’s like getting the front
brake (modulated) for free!
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.
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.
All frame sizes (and there are six to assure the best possible fit for greater comfort and more secure handling) offer an extra long head tube and hi- rise handlebars for a comfortable, upright ride position.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
