Honzo ESD

Available as Frame with Kona thru axle
$665 USD
If Mad Max rode a bike, it would be the Honzo ESD. It’s part Honzo, part monster, and with geometry derived from the Process X, it’s made for those who want to punish the trails. A steel frame holds a Marzocchi Bomber Z1 fork with 150mm of travel. Shimano Deore 4-piston brakes provide ample stopping power while Race Face AR 30 rims and burly Maxxis rubber stand up to the roughest trails. This is the Warrior of the Wasteland.

FEATURES

KONA CROMOLY

Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We’ve never strayed from cycling’s original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.

Models: Penthouse, Penthouse Flat, Sutra LTD, Sutra, Rove ST

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.

Models: Supreme Operator, Operator DL, Operator, Stinky 26, Process 111, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Precept 120, Precept 130, Precept 150, Honzo AL DL, Honzo AL, Big Honzo DL, Big Honzo, Hei Hei Race Supreme, Hei Hei Race DL, Hei Hei Race, Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei DL, Hei Hei, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail, Kahuna DDL, Kahuna DL, Kahuna, Big Kahuna, Lana’i, Fire Mountain, Blast, Cinder Cone, Explosif, Shred, Unit, Lava Dome, Mahuna, Wozo, Wo, Mohala, Tika, Coco, Stinky 24, Shred 24, Shred 20, Splice, Splice Deluxe, Jake, Jake the Snake, Jake the Snake CR, Private Jake, Esatto DDL, Esatto Disc, Esatto, Esatto Fast, Zone LTD, Big Rove AL, Dr Dew, Dew Deluxe, Dew Plus, Dewey, Ute, Honzo Ti Frame

TAPERED HEAD TUBE

More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.

Models: Process 111, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Honzo CR Trail DL, Honzo CR Trail, Honzo CR Race, Honzo AL DL, Big Honzo DL, Hei Hei Race Supreme, Hei Hei Race DL, Hei Hei Race, Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei DL, Hei Hei, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail, Kahuna DDL, Explosif, Unit, Jake the Snake, Jake the Snake CR, Private Jake, Esatto DDL, Tonk, Zone LTD, Sutra LTD

12x148mm AXLE

12x142mm, 12x148 and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. For 2017, you’ll see the 12x148 Boost standard in the mix. Boost spacing provides more tire clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.
