BIG UNIT (frame only)
There’s nothing more satisfying than making legit cult bikes. Make no mistake, the Big Unit is all that. Based on endless rider feedback, we’ve been tweaking on this frame for years. With a super-responsive, light, tight and durable Kona Scandium 6069 Aluminum frame, highlighted by stiff forged and machined chainstay yoke and adjustable wheelbase via sliding rear dropouts, geared or singlespeed, this bike tops the popularity charts where the riding is smooth and fast, and off-the-charts fun.

KONA SCANDIUM 6069 BUTTED

Known to be one of the strongest alloys in the world, Kona Scandium 6069 is featured in a few of our high- to middle-end bike models, mainly in our dual-suspension and Race Light XC mountain bikes. Introduced to our line in 2012, Kona Scandium 6069 comes with yield strengths that are about 40 percent higher than previous Scandium alloys. The result is the strongest per-weight aluminum alloy ever made. Because of its fibrous or fine-grained structure, Scandium 6069 alloy reveals a unique combination of corrosion resistance and excellent fatigue strength.

COMPACT REAR TRIANGLE

Short chainstays and seatstays provide a perfect balance of stability and power transfer when out of the saddle and pedaling hard. Shorter seatstays also have less deflection during braking and accelerate faster than longer stays. A more compact rear triangle also helps the bike to negotiate tight-twisting sections of trail. The Honzo, Operator and Process 111 are good examples of 2014 bikes with incredibly compact rear triangles: quick, aggressive in corners, fun to jump and laterally stiff.

INTERNAL HEADSET

By having the headset bearing located inside the headtube (called “zero stack”), rather than the top and bottom, we are able to achieve a number of advantages when it comes to front-end stiffness, durability and overall riding performance. The major benefit of an internal headset is the extra layer of protection it provides the bearings against the elements. Additionally, the bearings are commonly available angular contact bearings, which are easily and inexpensively replaced. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.

TAPERED HEADTUBE

Aside from improving the aesthetic, due to its cleaner lines and smooth transition between the fork crown and the headset cover, tapered headtubes also offer a more solid interface between forks with tapered steertubes and the bicycle frame itself. More girth at the bottom of the headtube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered headtube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.
