Unknown territories are quickly discovered in true adventuring style on the Expedition, where comfort is assured and that mile from that B&B to the farmers market on Main Street will seem shorter than ever. With Ground Control Geometry for a more comfortable, upright riding position, plus a more stable ride due to its suspension fork and Body Geometry comfort components, the Expedition is the ultimate in riding comfort.
WHAT Comfortable frame geometry that allows riders to touch their forefoot to the ground when stopped. Low-entry model available.
WHY Provides maximum comfort with minimal back and neck strain, and gives the rider more confidence due to 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 pedaling remains efficient. Low-entry model features swooping design for easily getting on/off the bike, ensuring maximum confidence and stability.
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.
COMFORT PLUS SADDLE
WHAT Wide, plush 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.
WHAT Suspension fork with external preload adjustment.
WHY Absorbs bumps 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.
