ROAD: CLASSIC

HONKY TONK

REYNOLDS 520 BUTTED CROMOLY COMPACT REAR TRIANGLE 700C WHEELS LIFETIME WARRANTY
We have a lot of commuters who work at Kona, hardcore employees who brave the elements from summer and fall straight through winter and then spring. They endure everything from snow to incessant rain, long distances, dark hours and heavy loads. We built the Honky Tonk specifically for them. The result is a well-thought-out Reynolds 520 road frame that’s comfortable, light and smooth, with components and features specific to cycling in the rain, like long-reach calipers for excellent big-tire and fender clearance.

“The ideal steel commuter that might encourage your inner explorer to come out.” —Cycling Plus (UK)

TECHNOLOGY

ROAD: CLASSIC

These are the originals. Using road’s heritage in steel, and with geometry more attune to versatility, confidence, style and comfort, our Road Classic platform is all about blending the old with the new, creating bikes designed to stand the test of time and define an era. Welcome back the almighty Kapu!

REYNOLDS 520 BUTTED CROMOLY

From one of the world’s top cromoly manufacturers, Reynolds Cycling Technology, Reynolds 520 tubes are mandrel-butted for accurate profiles and available in a wide range of shapes. Weight savings from butting provides competitively priced, light framesets that are noticeably compliant on the road or the trail, and are guaranteed to last a lifetime. The Reynolds 520 range uses the same chemistry as their 725 range but without the heat-treatment process.

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.
