JAMIS HUDSON SPORT (2017)
JAMIS HUDSON SPORT (2017)
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 all Hudsons are 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, uprght ride position.
STEP RIGHT IN
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.
WHERE’S THE OTHER BRAKE LEVER?
SureStop’s new 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!
BEST IN CLASS COMFORT
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.
Using gears is supposed to make cycling easy, not a chore. That’s why our Hudsons are available in single, three or seven-speed versions only. Every shift is a one-handed cinch.
CLEAN AND SIMPLE
The Hudson’s alloy crankset features an outer-ring chainguard. With another full length changuard running the length of the chain from seatstay to chainring. So socks, slacks, skirts and dresses are well protected from the chain.
