PROCESS

Process 134 DL

OVERVIEW

The foundation of our ultra-capable Process range, designed and spec’d for riders who will challenge everything mountain biking has to offer. From all-day cross-country epics to local enduro races, the Process 134 DL features geometry and travel numbers that maximize the middle: it’s not too XC-oriented, so it can handle the bigger stuff, and it’s not too aggressive, so it excels on big efforts. The perfect ride for those who like to ride it all.

Frame Features:
The industry-leading revolution in mountain-bike geometry started with the Process platform. The short stem for stiff and quick handling mated with lengthy reach numbers for a confidence-inspiring overall fit and long front center for stability at speed. Add short chainstays, to maintain maneuverability in technical situations, and a low BB for an in-the-bike feel. The lowest standover possible on all sizes, while short chainstays benefit cornering, jump-ability and overall bike stiffness. *The Process 134 series is available in a XS size for smaller riders under 5ft/1.5m.

TECH

PROCESS MTB Trail, Enduro, Gravity

Regularly touted by the world’s mountain-bike press as one of the most comprehensive and smartly designed series of mountain bikes ever made, our Process line is all about offering discerning cyclists the bike that perfectly fits their personal equation of discipline, terrain, size and style. Essentially, no matter where or how you ride, there’s a Process that’s perfect for you.

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.

INTERNAL HEADSETS

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. 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.

TAPERED HEAD TUBE

More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing positive steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance, better tire grip on the trail, lower rolling resistance and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.

12x142mm AXLE

12x142mm, 12x148 and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. New for 2016, you’ll see the 12x148 standard in the mix, featured primarily on the new alloy Honzos. 12x148 provides more tire clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.

ROCKER INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION

Different riders have different needs, but Trail and Enduro riders need a lot of everything—from downhill performance to efficient climbing. With Rocker Independent Suspension we found a healthy balance between the down and the up, while also designing a suspension platform that was as compact and low-slung on the frame as possible for maximum standover, stiffness and maneuverability. A consistent leverage rate curve that perfectly matches currently available air shocks creates a stable pedaling platform, while giving the rider a predictable feel throughout the travel.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

The original owner shall pay all labor charges connected with the repair or replacement of all parts.

LIFETIME LIMITED WARRANTY ON BICYCLE FRAME
When warranty on non-carbon Kona bikes and frames is NOT registered within three months of purchase, Kona warrants to the original owner that the frame of this new Kona bicycle purchased from an authorized Kona dealer shall be free of defective materials or workmanship for a three-year period. IF THE WARRANTY IS REGISTERED WITH KONA WITHIN THREE MONTHS AFTER THE PURCHASE OF THE BICYCLE, THE WARRANTY IS EXTENDED FOR THE LIFETIME OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER, with the exception of carbon bikes and frames. During warranty period, Kona shall repair or replace, at its sole option, the bicycle frame if Kona determines the frame is defective and subject to this limited warranty.

Please see the Kona owner’s manual, provided with your bicycle, for additional information.

Note: this Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to purchases from Kona U.S.A., Kona Canada and Kona Europe.

27.5" WHEELS

The benefits of the 27.5-inch wheel are simple: they roll over obstacles and track better than 26-inch wheels, but are more maneuverable and nimble than 29-inch ones. They are, quite literally, the best of both worlds, effectively increasing overall performance and rider confidence.
