Unit X

2020 2019
$1399 USD BUY NOW
For those who love the idea of the Unit’s versatility but want something a bit more capable of climbing, we offer the Unit X. Sharing a Reynolds 520 Cromoly frame with the Unit, the Unit X brings a SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain and Level T brakes for powerful stopping. The 2020 Unit has a fresh new set of 29” WTB boost thru-axle wheels and can accept a 29x2.6” tire. We’re confident these upgrades make the Unit X the perfect bike for any type of terrain.

“Despite Kona’s portrayal of the bike as perhaps being more of an adventure bike, it feels a little more like its Unit namesake: a bike that defies pigeonholing and which can be many things to different riders.”

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

44mm HEAD TUBE

44mm oversized heatubes allow us to run tapered steerer forks by using a large external lower cup headset bearing. The larger diameter steerer tube adds considerable stiffness and will increase responsiveness to the front end, improving all-around performance.

Models: Unit, Lava Dome, Honzo 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

12x148mm 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. For 2017, you’ll see the 12x148 Boost standard in the mix. Boost spacing provides more tire clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.
