We've fallen head over heels for electric mountain bikes. They're proven time and time again to bring the fun, a deeper sense of adventure, and more exploration than we ever thought possible. For 2021 we're featuring five electric mountain bike models that span a wide variety of uses. Whether you're cruising the gravel trails behind your house on the El Kahuna, going for an epic trail adventure on your Remote 130, or self-shuttling on one of the Remote 160s, you're going to reach new levels of good times with Kona electric mountain bikes.

Both the Remote 160 and Remote 160 DL make gravity riding completely self-sufficient. A fully-integrated battery keeps the lines clean. With 160mm of travel, powerful disc brakes, and builds to fit different budgets, you'll never miss a chairlift again.

The DL version is running Shimano's EP800 motor which provides a quiet, powerful boost whenever you need it.

Unlike the Remote 160, the Remote 160 DL runs on 29" wheels to maintain excellent traction.
The Remote 160 DL features a 1° slacker headtube (64°) than the Remote 160, ensuring excellent descending qualities with the 29" wheels.
The Remote 130 strikes perfect harmony between an all-mountain trail bike and pedal-assist electric bike. Its geometry is derived from the Process 134 and features a 65° head tube angle, 435mm chainstays, and the same reach as its sister 134 bikes.
A sturdy aluminum frame holds Shimano’s E7000 motor and 504 Wh battery.
Tire clearance allows you to run up to a 29x2.5" tire. The bike comes spec'd with Maxxis DHF/DHR 2.5"/2.4” EXO+ tires.
Both Remote 160s and the Remote 130 have a durable, removable battery cover that stands up to abuse from trail debris.
The complete overhaul of the Remote brings it into a more performance-oriented arena. With geometry similar to that of a Honzo DL, and featuring a 140mm fork, the Remote is the ultimate electric hardtail weapon for full-on trail shredding.
A fully-integrated 504 Wh internal battery runs Shimano's E7000 motor.
The reach of the Remote matches the reach of the Honzo DL
A 76° seat tube angle and 66° head tube angle put the rider in a position that is comfortable to pedal, and perfect for descending.
The El Kahuna takes our popular Kahuna bike and powers it up with a Shimano E6100 motor and semi-integrated 504 Wh battery. This is the perfect utilitarian trekking bike complete with rack and fender mounts, 100mm of front suspension, and the ability to run up to 29x2.35" tires.
