The Hei Hei has been in the Kona lineup almost as long as Kona has been a company. It’s evolved over time to be as light and fast as the best XC race machines in the world.

This year we’ve redesigned the frame geometry of the Hei Hei and beefed up the suspension on the carbon models to keep up with the demands of ever-challenging cross-country race courses.

Kona Product Manager Pat White talks about the history and development story behind the all-new carbon Hei Hei.

The front triangle has room for two full-sized water bottles across all frame sizes.
Internal remote shock cable routing on the CR and CR DL models.
The Hei Hei CR and Hei Hei CR DL feature a stronger and more durable frame design.
