Rove AL

The Rove AL is the bike you want for every ride, and it’s built for adventures you don’t even know about yet. The lightweight aluminum frame and comfortable geometry are set for long rides, or perhaps a local CX race. If a road ride turns into a trail or gravel excursion, the large tire clearance and compact gearing are built to explore farther.

FEATURES

KONA 6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, 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, so we can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.
