UNIT
Our classic singlespeed, the fully rigid Unit returns once more to build on its legacy as one of our most popular mountain bikes of all time. This year it gets a fancy upgrade in the form of a Reynolds 520 Butted Cromoly frameset—truth be told, there is nothing like the ride feel of sweet steel. The Unit also comes with tubeless ready rims and the pinnacle in mechanical disc brakes. The ultimate in elegance and simplicity, joined at the hip, at a price that won’t cost you an arm (or a leg).

REYNOLDS 520 BUTTED CROMOLY

From one of the world’s top cromoly manufacturers, Reynolds Cycling Technology, comes Reynolds 520 tubes, which are mandrel butted for accurate profiles and available in a wide range of shapes. Weight savings from butting provides competitively priced, light framesets. The Reynolds 520 range uses the same chemistry as their 725 range but without the heat-treatment process.

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.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

Kona warrants to the original owner that their new Kona bicycle frame purchased from an authorized Kona dealer shall be free of defective materials or workmanship for the lifetime of ownership by the original owner. This warranty is limited to five years for carbon fiber frames. During this warranty period, Kona shall repair or replace, at its sole option, the bicycle frame if Kona determines the frame is defective and subject to this limited warranty. The original owner shall pay all labor and shipping charges connected with the repair or replacement of the bicycle frame. Please see the Kona owner’s manual, provided with your bicycle, for additional information.

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

An increasing amount of 2014 Kona models feature the benefits of 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 + tire systems. For 2014, you’ll find tubeless compatible rims on most of our XC Race Light and Enduro bikes, as well as throughout our Cyclocross and Road platforms.
