All-terrain bicycles are the most versatile bikes you can own. They are low maintenance, lightweight, and efficient frames. With less moving parts than a suspension bicycle you can explore further with less scheduled services. The ATB is reminiscent of the early mountain bikes, but with updated geometry, components, and technologies, the modern ATB has established itself as something much more than just a 90's mountain bike.
What Makes a Great ATB?
A true ATB is good at many things: it has good tire clearance, proper gears, and a comfortable riding position, which are the foundations of an excellent ATB. It should also have space for a frame bag, multiple water bottle mounting locations, and rack and fender mounts. From there, you can make tire and handlebar choices that really optimize the bike for your riding style and terrain.

ATBs: The Simpler, More Affordable Option
ATBs are generally without suspension. By choosing to remove complicated suspension parts, you can reduce the amount of time and money spent on servicing your bike and instead spend more time riding it. Along with low maintenance, the overall weight is reduced. With ATBs you can run bigger tires at lower pressures help keep the ride comfortable over the rough stuff.

In the world of ATBing, the concept of a "quiver-killer" reigns supreme. This notion revolves around owning a single bike that can handle all your riding needs. At Hudski Bikes, we understand the allure of this idea and strive to incorporate it into our ATB philosophy. With our bikes, you can have it all—a versatile companion that excels on most terrains, freeing you from the burden of multiple specialized bikes.
The ATB: The Ultimate Bike for Fun and Adventure
The main goal of this revitalized category is to find utility, reliability, and above all: a good time. It's not driven by race wins but about the places you'll end up on a bike. There are no “rules” or defined uniform—just go out and explore the world around you by bike. An ATB can take you from the urban jungle to mountain trails in an efficient and comfortable way, all with a big smile on your face.
