KONA ROVE LINE EXPANSION

KONA ROVE LINE EXPANSION

Multi-surface, multi-purpose: the new Rove is Kona's take on a modern, all-day drop bar bike. Two all-new frames set the stage for the Rove line's expansion: The flagship Rove LTD features a Reynolds 853 steel frame, while the Rove NRB and NRB DL feature a lightweight 6061 aluminum frame. All three new models are paired with a full carbon, flat mount disc brake fork and high volume 650b tires.

Making use of WTB's new range of tubeless-ready high volume 650b tires, the Rove can now go further than ever before while maintaining its quickness on smooth surfaces. The Rove has always been quick on the pavement yet capable on a variety of surfaces, and the move to high volume 650b wheels and tires extends that capability yet again.

UPDATED ROVE ST

The first bike to bear the Rove name was a cromoly-framed adventurer that continues to this day. This year's Rove ST sees thoughtful updates that bring it into line with the Rove NRB and Rove LTD. We've updated the frame and fork to accommodate the new standard of 12mm thru-axles, and given it a new rear dropout that cleanly integrates flat mount disc brakes. In addition to these hardware updates, we've also eked out a bit more space in the chainstays, so you can run the fat tires everyone loves when they take their Roves off-road.
