Ute

Multiple Bike-of-the-Year awards speak for themselves. The Ute is a well-designed, carry-everything utility bike that makes quick work of trips to the store, dropping the kids off at school and bringing the tree home for the holidays. We didn’t need any awards to tell us how rad this bike is, but it’s nice to see that other people get it.

FEATURES

KONA 7005 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.

INTERNAL HEADSET

Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. 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.
