OVERVIEW

Our top-drawer Kona Carbon cyclocross racer is the ultimate weapon for tracks from Holland to New Hampshire. This is the frame Kona Team rider Helen Wyman uses to consistently attack the world’s best on the World Cup cyclocross circuit. A great race package at a fantastic value.

“This is a true cross bike.” -Pedal

Frame Features:
A quick-as-lightning and light-as-a-feather Kona Carbon Race Monocoque frame and tapered Monocoque Kona Carbon Race CX fork, both with hidden fender eyelets, and featuring internal cable routing, Di2 options and a PF30 bottom bracket.

TECH

JAKE Cyclocross, Commuter

We are proud to introduce the most comprehensive collection of Jakes since we first started making cyclocross bikes in 1994. From UK National Champion Helen Wyman’s winning ways to the best junior development team in North America—Rad Racing, and every type of cross/commuter rider in between. We make a Jake that will help you go faster, farther, no matter where you ride.

KONA CARBON

To create our growing fleet of Kona Carbon bikes, our design team works intimately with our manufacturers to ensure the desired ride characteristics, durability demands and weight stipulations are met to the highest standards possible. Kona Carbon bikes are feather-light, super-fast, extremely durable and wildly fun.

INTERNAL HEADSETS

The major benefit of an internal headset, whereby the bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable, is the extra layer of protection it provides the bearings against the elements. 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 HEAD TUBE

More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing positive steering performance. 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 head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance, better tire grip on the trail, lower rolling resistance and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.
