TECHNOLOGY

CYCLOCROSS

Here at Kona, we love cyclocross. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a leg-shaving skin suiter or a wool-ensconced commuter, we make a ‘cross bike to fit your demands. From the top down we incorporate race-inspired geometry with neatly tucked-away amenities like fender mounts, rack, and water bottle mounts. In short, our CX bikes are designed with ulterior motives in mind. The course tape is just a reference and we’re not afraid to encourage you to color outside the lines. Go out and give ‘er! Just be back in time for dinner and wash your hands.

KONA RACELIGHT 7005 ALUMINUM

Kona Race Light 7005 is a lighter, more performance-oriented fabrication of our 7005 tubing. Designed to meet Kona’s discerning race specifications, Race Light 7005 uses custom butting to create thicker tubes at weld areas and important parts of the frame, providing incredible strength and torsional integrity to the feel of the ride. We remove wall thickness in other parts of the frameset to lighten up the bike, giving the perfect balance between quickness and stiffness. The emphasis here is on performance, lightness and speed, built the Kona Way.

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.

INTERNAL HEADSET

The major benefit of an internal headset, whereby the bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable, is the extra layer of protection it provides the bearings against the elements. Additionally, the bearings are commonly available angular contact bearings, which are easily and inexpensively replaced. 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.
