Innovation doesn’t let us sleep and passion keeps us riding every day. At Kona we live, breath, eat, sleep, and repeat mountain biking. And we do it in every discipline imaginable: from downhill to dirt jump, cross-country to crosstrail, enduro, all-mountain, any-trail-you-want, to riding free of classification altogether. For 2016 we let our bikes do the talking. With now legendary platforms like our ride-it-all Process bikes, our performance and price perfected Precepts, completely re-designed Hei Heis and Kahunas, an expanded Honzo range, to an all new 27.5 Operator, this is our best line-up of off-road bicycles in our 28-year history. From titanium to carbon fiber, cromoly to refined alloys, full suspension that’s quick, smart and intangibly fun, and new geometry that takes our industry leading hardtails to an unprecedented level of fit, efficiency, control, and comfort. Yes, the Kona Ride just exploded into a whole new stratosphere of good times.
When it comes to our Road Collection, we’re proud to present the largest, most eclectic group of skinny (and not so skinny) tire bikes in our 28-year history. Since we first started designing road bikes in 1990 we’ve always done it a little different—bikes that use unique materials like titanium and cromoly, with geometry and features that not only maximize efficiency and speed, but the almighty fun quotient as well. Because for us, whether you’re racing 200 miles of gravel or bombing farm roads, how a bike makes you smile is just as important as how fast it gets to the finish. You see, for us, roads are just like trails. They come in all shapes and sizes. They go up, they go down, they roll out rough and smooth as silk. Creating bikes that go everywhere, all the time, with geometry, parts, and features tailored to find that perfect balance of performance, price and purpose defines our company. You’ll see this ethic come alive in new models like the Roadhouse, the Private Jake and the Esatto Fast.
