Process 153 CR/DL 29

Two Carbon models to choose from

Neutral Anti-squat characteristics make for excellent pedaling efficiency. The first 1/3 of the leverage curve has a "flat" section which provides good small bump compliance and a supple ride feel while staying high in the travel.
Both models feature a metric trunnion-mounted shock
Cable routing enters on either side of the head tube
Kona cable management system exit port sits in front of shock and holds a spare derailleur hanger
Vertical shock orientation accommodates a water bottle. The Carbon Process also maintains a low standover height on all models.
Main and rocker pivots feature big 20mm ID bearings. Bearing pivots are secured by way of a three-piece locking axle system.
Integrated chainstay protection on both models
Clearance for 29x2.4" tire on 30mm internal rim
Aluminum chainstays on all models ensure durability and protection against accidental hits from rocks and other trail debris.
Deep seatpost insertion: L and XL Frames will take a 170mm dropper inserted right to the collar; medium frames will accept a 150mm and small frames will take a 125mm though most riders will find they can run a 150mm on a small as well.
