The Explorer has been one of Jamis' best-selling bikes, ever since it’s introduction in 1982. Originally designed as a mountain bike, the Explorer has since evolved into a very practical and very comfortable bike. Inspired in part by the Hudson and Citizen, without sacrificing the versatile on- or off-road competence of the original Explorer, the newest generation Explorer is all about getting the most fun out of the ride, in style, with performance and comfort features that make getting around feel effortless and fun.
The Explorer Sport combines a rugged, yet lightweight aluminum step-thru frame that is easy to get on and off and puts you in an upright position that is comfortable all day long, while its suspension fork reduces shock to your hands and wrists so you experience less fatigue on bumpy roads and trails. You also get a 24-speed Shimano drivetrain, Tektro brakes, and a memory-foam saddle to make every mile full of smiles. Getting out and riding has never been so easy!
