The Claud Butler Explorer range combines the conventional geometry of the hybrid and the poise of the mountain bike offering the best of both worlds. A wide spread of gears combined with 700c wheels and a low centre of gravity makes the bikes feel fast on tarmac. The semi off road tyre tread gives you the option to take to the hills and trails if the mood takes you. We have completely redesigned the frame and geometries of the Explorers for 2014. Hydro-formed top and down tubes give a more modern and elegant look and we've lengthened the head tubes slightly to give a more comfortable riding position. We have re-positioned the callipers of the disc brake equipped models to the chain stay making it easier to fit mudguards and a carrier rack if desired. We have also added a new and more sporty looking diamond frame at the higher end of the ladies range to cater for the more serious rider.
The Explorer range is a quick, fast commuter bike that has the added benefit of a front suspension fork that will take the pain out of those bumps. The Explorer 100 is an 18spd Shimano equipped machine with quality suspension forks all wrapped up in a value for money package complete with Sram chainset and Kenda tyres.
