El Kahuna

The Kahuna is one of our best-selling hardtails. People love its simplicity and practicality. We brought that ethos to the El Kahuna and built a bike that was multipurpose—capable of riding the local singletrack for hours on end, and still have enough battery to go get the groceries on the way home. A Shimano E6100 pedal-assist motor is powered by a semi-integrated 504 Wh battery. A 100mm Suntour XCR 34 Air fork provides just the right amount of suspension to absorb smaller hits on the trail. Shimano Deore brakes provide reliable stopping power. WTB ST i27 TCS 2.0 29” rims are wrapped with super grippy WTB Trail Boss 2.25” tires making the El Kahuna the perfect all-rounder.

FEATURES

KONA 6061 ALUMINUM

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, 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, so we can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

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.

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.

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.
