TECHNOLOGY

TRAIL 29" HT

We’ve been making 29-inch-wheel hardtails for a very long time. You could say we’ve been doing it from the outset, long before most companies embraced the beauty of the big wheel. From our testing center in Bellingham, Washington, where wet roots and perennial mud make for long, challenging, and highly rewarding rides, the simplicity of 29-inch-wheel hardtails has always made sense. No surprise then, we’ve spent the better part of a decade making sure they run perfectly.

KONA 6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, affordable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, allowing us to fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

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.
