KONA 6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED COMPACT REAR TRIANGLE INTERNAL HEADSET FAT BIKE LIFETIME WARRANTY
We’ve seen them cruise glaciers and roll through sand dunes on the way to surf breaks, even dropping in on the odd cross-country race. Yes, the Wo has secured its spot in the Fat-bike world as an amazing value and solid performer. Introduced last year, the 2015 Kona fat bike gets an updated frame design featuring sliding dropouts and 190 OLD rear spacing. The result is a bike that can clear wide rolling five-inch tires. Don’t hold back. Make the world go “Wo!”

TECHNOLOGY

From the deep snows of wintery climes to the warm sand of beachy ones to the big wild world of singletrack, gravel fire roads and bumpy pavement in between, in our ever-growing Freerange platform you’ll find exceedingly detail-oriented and well-designed bikes able to do it all. Ride free, good cycling person. Ride free.

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.

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 2015 bikes with incredibly compact rear triangles: quick, aggressive in corners, easy to maneuver and laterally stiff.

INTERNAL HEADSET

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. 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.
