Process X DL

Available as Frame with Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock and Kona thru axle
$2999 USD
If the Undertaker rode a mountain bike, he’d undoubtedly ride the Process X DL. Aimed at nothing but ripping riders on the most technical of terrain, the Process X DL is a monster on the trails. A full carbon frame features the all-new RockShox Zeb Ultimate RC2 fork with 170mm of travel and a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock boasting 161mm of travel. A SRAM XO1 Eagle drivetrain provides maximum range when hitting the liaison stages between trails. We tossed on some ultra-burly Maxxis EXO+ casing tires—Assegai front and Minion DHR II rear—for the rough stuff. SRAM Code RSC brakes provide mega stopping power, but who needs brakes when you’re this busy hauling ass?

FEATURES

KONA CARBON

Designed to be lightweight and built to demanding standards. Carbon fiber has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, we place our efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibers are in the right places. Our designers work very closely with our manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability and – finally – weight stipulations that we expect from our bikes.

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.

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.

BEAMER INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION

Built to be off-the-top progressive, Beamer Independent Suspension helps the bike to stay higher in the travel and recover from hits more quickly. The Operators are instilled with what our product managers like to call “pure shock movement,” whereby the shock is protected from side load. Designed to be highly tuneable and extremely durable, the Beamer IS is our version of greased lightning.

Models: Supreme Operator, Operator DL, Operator, Stinky 24
