Ride deeper into road on the Esatto DDL’s brand new Kona SuperLight 7046 Aluminum Butted Alloy frame. With size-specific tubing incorporated to provide frames that are stiff enough for larger riders and compliant enough for smaller riders, along with a carbon Kona Road Endurance flat disc mount specific fork, fender readiness and sturdy front and rear dropouts, the Esatto DDL can take anything the never-ending road can throw at it.
Our Esatto frames are highlighted by Kona Endurance Geometry, designed for comfort, stability, confidence and versatility. Featuring new light and lively Kona SuperLight 7046 Aluminum Butted alloy for 2016, the Esatto platform incorporates taller head tubes and shorter top tubes than more race-oriented road bikes. It has slacker angles, lower BB, and longer chainstays and wheelbase for stability, as well as a tapered head tube and steerer, with ample tire and fender clearance with flat disc mounts on the Esatto DDL. New for 2016, 15 x 100mm front and 12 x 142mm rear thru-axle systems have been added for stiffness.

Introduced in 2015, our Esatto series of Road Endurance bikes has quickly taken off as a smooth riding, value-laden road platform designed specifically for those looking to go deeper down the road less traveled. With three high-grade alloy models and a titanium frameset, this year we add a new bike to the group, the Esatto Fast.
A new material for Kona, featured throughout some of our road and mountain bike platforms, Kona SuperLight 7046 has more Titanium in its composition, giving it 25 percent improved hardness and tensile strength, as well as greater fatigue resistance. Superlight 7046 has properties that allow for the thinnest possible wall thickness, thereby reducing overall weight and making it extremely light and responsive, without sacrificing durability.

Integrated headsets are simple, light and effective headset systems whereby the bearing race cups are actually part of the head tube, either machined away and left with the head tube, or glued in (carbon), or welded in with steel or alloy. Like an internal headset, an integrated headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.
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 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, 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.
