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.
  • 63mm-travel suspension fork with preload adjustment creates a smoother, more comfortable ride
  • BG Comfort grips alleviate hand pain and tingling fingers, and an integrated bell adds safety
  • Die cast alloy adjustable quill-stem and aluminum riserbar for strength and comfortable positioning
  • Shimano triple crankset gives you precise, hassle-free shifting and all the gears you need for varied terrain
  • 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
  • A1 Premium Aluminum 26" frame with Ground Control geometry for a confident, upright riding position and low standover for bike path bliss
  • 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
