ROVE TI

3-2.5 TITANIUM COMPACT REAR TRIANGLE 700C WHEELS 44MM HEADTUBE LIFETIME WARRANTY

Race cyclocross, race the world to work, or just look damn good.

TECHNOLOGY

From the deep snows of wintery climes to the warm sand of beachy ones to the big wild world of singletrack, gravel fire roads and bumpy pavement in between, in our ever-growing Freerange platform you’ll find exceedingly detail-oriented and well-designed bikes able to do it all. Ride free, good cycling person. Ride free.

3-2.5 TITANIUM

Building on the success of the Raijin, our first Titanium bike since we introduced the Ti Score and the Ti King Kahuna, you’ll find four Titanium framesets available throughout our MTB Trail and Road platforms. Truth be told, we’ve always been in love with the playful nature, simplicity, bomber construction and feather-light ride feel of Titanium. New for 2015, we introduce the Road Endurance Ti Esatto road frame, a smooth-riding, wickedly efficient addition to our Road collection. The Ti Esatto joins the Ti Explosif 27.5-inch Trail bike, the Ti Rove and the now legendary Raijin 29-inch XC hardtail.

As far as material construction is concerned, we exclusively use 3-2.5 Titanium, an incredibly strong and lightweight metal consisting of 3 percent aluminum, 2.5 percent vanadium, and 94.5 percent pure titanium. Excellent fatigue life, light weight, property consistency, form-ability, and corrosion resistance are but a few of the reasons 3-2.5 is still the premier frame material when it comes to high-quality, seamless tube titanium.

Kona’s 3-2.5 Ti bikes are manufactured in Tennessee, U.S.A. by Lynskey Performance Designs, one of the top titanium fabricators in the world. Our designers work closely with Lynskey’s experienced team of fabricators to ensure exacting standards when it comes to the development of Kona Titanium framesets. Rest assured, not only will you have a Kona Ti bike for life, we guarantee it will be the ride of your life.

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.

44MM HEADTUBE

44mm oversized heatubes allow us to run tapered steerer forks by using a large external lower cup headset bearing. Primarily used on our Titanium and Cromoly models, where tapering the frame material of the headtube is prohibitive, 44m headtube allows us to include of the precise steering and frame stiffness associated with a tapered steerer fork.
