Hudski is still a fairly young company in the world of bikes, but their category-defying Doggler left a lasting impression since my last ride at Camp Strava. The Doggler is about having fun on a bike first, and doesn’t worry about fitting into a specific category of bike design.

It looks like Hudski is taking that ethos to the next level with their new Dualist that was teased back at Sea Otter. Compared to the Doggler, the bike has a number of updates – mainly to increase tire clearance and add SRAM UDH capability. Now running Boost 148mm rear spacing, the frame has a two-piece forged BB that’s welded down the middle to allow for bigger tire clearance. The rear axle also has two positions, one at 435mm and the other at 450mm chainstay lengths ( a feat while maintaining UDH compatibility).

Depending on the setting, you can run up to 29 x 2.5″ tires out back, or a chunky 27.5 x 2.8″.

Up front, the carbon fork also has two axle positions with 44 or 54mm fork offset.

Otherwise, the Dualist looks fairly similar to the Doggler, and will continue to challenge perceptions about what a gravel or mountain bike could/should be.

We’re told that the Dualist will officially be launched in June with delivery expected in July. Don’t care about bigger tire clearance or UDH? Today is the last day of a big sale on the Hudski Doggler, with complete bike prices as low as $1,120!

At $1100, this could be pretty compelling (assume it has Deore). Their other bikes were $1600, which always felt overpriced to me, but they recently dropped pricing. Not easy to find a well-built, simple bike without any suspension for $1000.
