Process 111 DL

OVERVIEW

The ground-breaking Process 111 returns with an incredibly deluxe parts spec in the all new Process 111 DL. This is the most capable 29-inch dual-suspension bicycle currently on the market. From XC through to full-on enduro (you can even shred bike parks on this baby), with aggressive geometry and a low-slung frame weight perfectly suited to allow for quick, nimble riding over a wide-variety of terrain, the Process 111 DL will be one of the most exciting mountain bike’s you ever ride.

“Drop the seat and that XC feeling goes away to reveal a precision trail assassin.” – Dirt Rag

Frame Features:
The industry-leading revolution in mountain-bike geometry started with the Process platform. The short stem for stiff and quick handling mated with lengthy reach numbers for a confidence inspiring overall fit and long front center for stability at speed. Add short chainstays, to maintain maneuverability in technical situations, and a low BB for an in-the-bike feel. The lowest standover possible on all sizes, while short chainstays benefit cornering, jump-ability and overall bike stiffness. New frame features for 2016 on the 111: a lighter seat tube, seat tube gusset and chainstay.

TECH

PROCESS MTB Trail, Enduro, Gravity

Regularly touted by the world’s mountain-bike press as one of the most comprehensive and smartly designed series of mountain bikes ever made, our Process line is all about offering discerning cyclists the bike that perfectly fits their personal equation of discipline, terrain, size and style. Essentially, no matter where or how you ride, there’s a Process that’s perfect for you.

KONA 6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, affordable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, allowing us to fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

2016 Kona 7005/6061 bikes: Lana'i, Fire Mountain, Tika, Lava Dome, Mahuna, Kahuna, Stinky 24, WO, Shred, Process 111 DL, Process 111, Process 134 Supreme, Process 134 DL, Process 134, Process 153 DL, Process 153, Process 167, Operator 27.5, Shonky AL, Honzo AL, Honzo AL/DL, Coco, Shred 24, Shred 20, Hula, Makena, Jake 24, Big Rove AL, Rove AL, Dew Deluxe, Dew Plus, Dewey, Dew , Precept 200, Ute, Precept 120, Precept 130, Precept 150

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.

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. New for 2016, you’ll see the 12x148 standard in the mix, featured primarily on the new alloy Honzos. 12x148 provides more tire clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.

ROCKER INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION

Different riders have different needs, but Trail and Enduro riders need a lot of everything—from downhill performance to efficient climbing. With Rocker Independent Suspension we found a healthy balance between the down and the up, while also designing a suspension platform that was as compact and low-slung on the frame as possible for maximum standover, stiffness and maneuverability. A consistent leverage rate curve that perfectly matches currently available air shocks creates a stable pedaling platform, while giving the rider a predictable feel throughout the travel.
