FEATURES

KONA CROMOLY

Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We’ve never strayed from cycling’s original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.

Models: Penthouse, Penthouse Flat, Sutra LTD, Sutra, Rove ST

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.

Models: Process 111, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Honzo CR Trail DL, Honzo CR Trail, Honzo CR Race, Honzo AL DL, Big Honzo DL, Hei Hei Race Supreme, Hei Hei Race DL, Hei Hei Race, Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei DL, Hei Hei, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail, Kahuna DDL, Explosif, Unit, Jake the Snake, Jake the Snake CR, Private Jake, Esatto DDL, Tonk, Zone LTD, Sutra LTD

12x142mm AXLE

12x142mm, 12x148 and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. For 2017, you’ll see the 12x148 Boost standard in the mix. Boost spacing provides more tire clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.
