All the bells & whistles of the Expedition Elite in a confidence-inspiring and convenient low standover configuration.
  • A1 Premium Aluminum 26" frame with Ground Control geometry for a confident, upright riding position and extra 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
  • Comfort Plus saddle uses springs and a wide platform for over-the-top comfort, while a suspension seatpost takes the edge of bumpy roads
  • Women's BG Comfort grips alleviate hand pain and tingling fingers, and an integrated bell adds safety
  • 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
  • Die cast alloy adjustable quill-stem for strength and comfortable positioning
  • SRAM 8-speed, 11/32t cassette replaces the freewheel mechanism of years past for lighter weight and more durability
  • Shimano triple crankset gives you precise, hassle-free shifting and all the gears you need for varied terrain
