Multiple personalities can be a great thing. The Reynolds Cromoly Unit has many faces and you get to decide which to use. Whether you need a bikepacking guru, or want a fully rigid single speed masher, or perhaps the ultimate steel 29er, the Unit makes the perfect companion. Spec’d with 27.5+ wheels but capable of running 29” wheels, the Unit comes with a full length freehub body in case you want to run gears. Whatever you can dream up, the Unit can do it all!

The Unit is without a doubt a move to give Kona fans something that can attach all their bikepacking accessories to, and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

FEATURES

REYNOLDS 520 CROMOLY

Reynolds 520 tubes are mandrel-butted for accurate profiles and available in a wide range of shapes. Weight savings from butting provides competitively priced, light framesets that are noticeably compliant on the road or the trail, and are guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Models: Explosif, Tonk, Paddy Wagon Drop, Paddy Wagon Stubby, Paddy Wagon TT, Paddy Wagon 3

INTERNAL HEADSET

Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. 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.

Models: Supreme Operator, Operator DL, Operator, Stinky 26, Process 111, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Precept 120, Precept 130, Precept 150, Honzo AL DL, Honzo AL, Big Honzo DL, Big Honzo, Hei Hei Race Supreme, Hei Hei Race DL, Hei Hei Race, Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei DL, Hei Hei, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail, Kahuna DDL, Kahuna DL, Kahuna, Big Kahuna, Lana’i, Fire Mountain, Blast, Cinder Cone, Explosif, Shred, Unit, Lava Dome, Mahuna, Wozo, Wo, Mohala, Tika, Coco, Stinky 24, Shred 24, Shred 20, Splice, Splice Deluxe, Jake, Jake the Snake, Jake the Snake CR, Private Jake, Esatto DDL, Esatto Disc, Esatto, Esatto Fast, Zone LTD, Big Rove AL, Dr Dew, Dew Deluxe, Dew Plus, Dewey, Ute, Honzo Ti Frame

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 confident 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.

Models: Supreme Operator, Operator DL, Operator, Stinky 26, Process 111, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Precept 120, Precept 130, Precept 150, Honzo CR Trail DL, Honzo CR Trail, Honzo CR Race, Honzo AL DL, Honzo AL, Big Honzo DL, Big Honzo, Hei Hei Race Supreme, Hei Hei Race DL, Hei Hei Race, Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei DL, Hei Hei, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail, Kahuna DDL, Kahuna DL, Kahuna, Big Kahuna, Lana’i, Fire Mountain, Blast, Cinder Cone, Explosif, Shred, Mahuna, Wozo, Wo, Mohala, Tika, Stinky 24, Jake the Snake, Jake the Snake CR, Private Jake, Esatto DDL, Esatto Disc, Esatto, Esatto Fast, Roadhouse, Wheelhouse, Zing CR, Zing AL, Zone LTD, PhD, Raijin Ti Frame, Explosif Ti Frame,

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.

Models: Process 111, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Honzo CR Trail DL, Honzo CR Trail, Honzo CR Race, Honzo AL DL, Big Honzo DL, Hei Hei Race Supreme, Hei Hei Race DL, Hei Hei Race, Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei DL, Hei Hei, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail, Kahuna DDL, Explosif, Unit, Jake the Snake, Jake the Snake CR, Private Jake, Esatto DDL, Tonk, Zone LTD, Sutra LTD

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.

Models: Supreme Operator, Operator DL, Operator, Process 134, Process 134 DL, Process 153, Process 153 DL, Precept 120, Precept 130, Precept 150, Hei Hei Trail, Hei Hei Trail DL, Hei Hei Trail Supreme, Lana’i, Fire Mountain, Blast, Cinder Cone, Explosif, Explosif Ti Frame, Shred, Mohala, Tika
