Expedition Elite


Lighter weight and 8-speed rear drivetrain make the Expedition Elite more responsive and versatile, while its Armadillo tires help ensure you won’t be slowed by a flat.


  • A1 Premium Aluminum 26″ frame with Ground Control geometry for a confident, upright riding position and low standover for bike path bliss
  • 63mm-travel suspension fork with preload adjustment creates a smoother, more comfortable ride
  • Double-walled, stainless, eyeletted 26″ rims are durable and low maintenance, with machined sidewalls for consistent braking
  • Smooth-rolling Hemisphere 26″ tires use Armadillo protection to eliminate flats and a semi-connected tread pattern for traction and control on pavement or gravel
  • Shimano triple crankset gives you precise, hassle-free shifting and all the gears you need for varied terrain
  • Die cast alloy adjustable quill-stem and aluminum riserbar for strength and comfortable positioning
  • BG Comfort grips alleviate hand pain and tingling fingers, and an integrated bell adds safety
  • Comfort Plus saddle uses springs and a wide platform for over-the-top comfort, while a suspension seatpost takes the edge of bumpy roads

WHY EXPEDITION?

Expedition riders enjoy the leisure and laid-back pace of the bike path, boardwalk, and neighbourhood loop. Whether back in the saddle for fitness, an alternative mode of transportation, or an excuse to spend more time with the family, they’re less interested in performance and more concerned with all-around comfort and stability.


WHAT:
Comfortable frame geometry that allows riders to touch their feet to the ground when stopped.

WHY:
Provides maximum comfort with minimal back and neck strain, and gives the rider more confidence because of easy access to the ground.

HOW:
Longer chainstays and a slacker seat tube angle bring the saddle lower to the ground without shortening leg reach, so pedalling remains efficient.


WHAT:
Adjustable alloy stem.

WHY:
Gives rider a large range of adjustment to stem and handlebar angles to dial in optimal position.

HOW:
By loosening a bolt, the stem can be pivoted to different angles, allowing a greater range of handlebar positions.


WHAT:
63mm-travel fork with external preload adjustment.

WHY:
Absorbs the rough spots on roads and dirt paths, while allowing the rider to dial in the perfect ride feel.

HOW:
The fork’s coil spring activates when a rider rolls over bumps or rough ground and compresses to absorb the impact. Preload adjustment changes the amount of initial sag in the fork, so suspension can be tuned for individual rider weight.


WHAT:
Wide cruiser-style saddle with dual-density foam and a forgiving spring system.

WHY:
Provides maximum cushioning and shock absorption, while supporting an upright position for all-day comfort.

HOW:
The springs act as shock absorbers under the sit bones, while the dual density foam distributes cushioning and support to the appropriate places.
