The 2023 Kona Factory Team is ready to take on the world’s most challenging trails. From North Vancouver’s roots and loam to Kamloops’ iconic lines, California’s flow, and atop the world’s most epic alpine mountain peaks, these riders will be blowing up corners and turning heads everywhere they go.
Kicking off his fourth year on Kona’s Factory Team is the North Shore’s favorite son, Caleb Holonko. Headlining the Factory Team, and following his huge 2022, Caleb has more heavy-hitting video parts planned to document his total assault on the freeride world. Frenchman Tito Tomasi has returned and is tackling more ambitious global alpine adventures that will be captured in video and story. Moving up from our Super Grassroots program are two young riders. First, is California’s phenom Eddie Reynolds. His combination of effortless style, speed, and an ever-expanding bag of tricks is bound to blow minds in 2023. Second, is Kamloops B.C.’s shredder Kyleigh Stewart, who will be focusing her talents on the growing women’s freeride scene. The 2023 Factory Team is set to be our most stylish yet. We’re gearing up for a year of big sends, big adventures, and groundbreaking riding.
