TAKING IT TO THE LIMIT

All our frames and forks are tested continually to meet or exceed (in some cases, well exceed) EN standards 14764, 14765, 14766 and 14781 as well as the new ISO 4210 standards. We conduct these tests at our frame manufacturing facilities, but we also use EN accredited testing laboratories such as Intertek and SGS to verify the results of our own tests. If these tests aren’t telling us everything we want to know about our bikes, we increase the loads and cycles, or we determine another way to test. Where current hydraulic testing machines, jigs and hardware aren’t up to the task of emulating some of the forces and impacts our bikes might be subject to, we’ve designed our own.

We relentlessly cycle test for fatigue from pedaling and torsional forces on every single frame size, with deflection tests for stiffness at every point of the frame. Brutal impact tests with massive weights dropped on fixed frames or forks are performed. Then reversed, with weights attached to the frame, the frame hoisted to a given height depending upon product type, then released.

This destructive testing is enormously instructive and important. And it is in continual process. But it’s our ongoing non-destructive testing of frames and forks fresh off the factory floor that’s just as vital.

For our carbon fiber frames, EVERY frame is weighed to make sure it’s neither resin rich nor resin deficient. We also measure the stiffness of each frame in 6 critical areas as a check on lay-up production. Each deflection test must fall within 5% of the standards our machine and field-testing have established. This weighing and stiffness deflection testing guarantees every single frame we produce meets all Jamis manufacturing protocol and will

deliver the ride qualities we defined and demand.

HUDSON EASY

Hudson Lite

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.

Easy Rider

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.

Get Fit

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.

Speed Limit

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.

TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

The Easy is as easy to ride as it gets. One easy gear to pedal: no shifting!. One easy brake to operate: a traditional rear, pedal-operated coaster brake!

Our super plush saddle is made with thickly padded, high-density polyurethane foam for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonant road vibrations. Offered in gender specific sizes.

Our smooth-rolling 26 x 1.95” Sport Comfort tires are more comfortable to ride around town than full knobby mountain bike tires.

The alloy crankset features an outer-ring chainguard. With another full length chainguard running the length of the chain from seatstays to chaining, clothing is well protected from the chain.

Our long quilled, short-reach stem and 3” rise handlebars offer a supremely comfortable, upright ride position that’s easy on neck & wrists.
