Introducing The 2024 Kona Factory Team

The 2024 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.

Kona Factory Team Caleb Holonko and Eddie Reynolds

Headlining the Kona Factory Team is North Shore’s favorite son, Caleb Holonko. Caleb has more heavy-hitting video parts planned and will continue his total assault on the freeride world. Returning for his second year on the Factory Team is California phenom Eddie Reynolds. His combination of effortless style, speed, and an ever-expanding bag of tricks is bound to blow minds, expect to see him on even more podiums in 2024. Kamloops B.C. shredder Kyleigh Stewart will be focusing her talents on the growing women’s freeride scene and select Crankworx events. New to the Factory Team for 2024 is up-and-comer Tayte Proulx-Royds, the young Canadian rider is just as at home sending huge freeride lines with style as she is racing Cross Country at an elite level.
