Meet Kona's Esatto DDL: The ultimate bike for long, exploratory rides that you never want to end. The Esatto Disc Deluxe is light and comfortable, but still knows what to do when you step on the gas and demand the most from your machine. The light, lively aluminum frame and carbon fork feature endurance geometry and hearty tire clearance for comfort and confidence. The compact 22-speed Shimano Ultegra/105 drivetrain has the range to scale double-digit percent dirt roads, yet still absolutely fly on descents and flats. Quick-spinning Novatec wheels, quality Schwalbe rubber, and powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes make for an outstanding build on this do-it-all, all-day-long workhorse.

When all you want is dirt, rocks, and a trustworthy rig that likes to get into trouble, Explosif fits the bill. This updated Kona classic comes to you as a 27.5-inch wheel, trail-scorching machine, spec’d to tear it up on singletrack. The Reynolds steel frame features sliding thru-axle dropouts and a tapered headtube, so you get the ride quality and longevity steel is known for with the modern designs that let you do more. A Fox 34 fork devours whatever you throw it at, letting you blast through rocky stretches and swoop through rutted corners while the Maxxis Tomahawk tires bite earth like a pit bull. Wide WTB i29 rims shape that rubber up to work its best, and Shimano SLX brakes take full advantage of that dialed traction, letting you brake later with modulation and confidence-boosting power. Race Face and Shimano put together a 1x11 drivetrain pairing RaceFace’s narrow-wide chainring with XT shifter, derailleur, and cassette, delivering a tight system with the range and precision to keep the stoke factor high. And, Kona makes sure you have the control to handle all that go-fast hardware with their own purpose-built cockpit components. The result is a trail-blasting stick of dynamite and you’re the match.
Do you like to get rowdy, but still want the speed and rollover of a 29er hardtail? You need Honzo. Kona’s Honzo AL/DL takes the cross-country efficiency and obstacle-clearing prowess of a 29er hardtail and cranks the fun to 11. This trail-shredding hardtail uses progressive geometry with short chainstays, long reach, and a slack head tube angle to give you a fast-climbing machine that scorches earth on the way down. RockShox provides a 120mm-travel Recon fork to keep your wide 2.3-inch Maxxis Minion front tire in control so you can get rad. SRAM’s NX 1 x 11-speed drivetrain delivers the range you need to get to the top, while a pair of Shimano hydraulic brakes let you bring the speed down in a hurry. And, you know Kona wants you grinning the whole time you’re riding their rigs, so they threw in an internally routed KS dropper post to make sure you're locked in for more fun than ever!
Meet Honzo Ti, a buttery-smooth 29er hardtail that lays waste to technical singletrack. Built of 3Al/2.5V titanium, Honzo will last a lifetime and look great doing it. It's aggressive, confident, and ready to rip with a 68-degree head angle, low bottom bracket, and short chain stays. Other features include a PF92 bottom bracket, internal dropper post routing, and sliding, vertical dropouts ready for gears or singlespeed shenanigans. Kona is known for its hardcore hardtails, and the Honzo Ti proudly continues the tradition with a ride that can't be described.
Torn between efficient trail bike and attitude-driven downhiller, Kona’s Precept 150 promises tons of high amplitude fun all day long. It’s built on a burly, yet gram-conscious, 6061 aluminum frame, pushing a RockShox Monarch RT shock to offer 150mm of rock-swallowing rear wheel travel. A Suntour Aion Air fork matches the rear travel and keeps you driving your line when it gets chunky. Meaty, 27.5-inch Maxxis rubber digs in deep and rolls on a pair of WTB rims that come ready to take a beating while a 1 x 11-speed SRAM/RaceFace drivetrain keep you burning dirt with a range that likes to go both up- and downhill. While you’re on the way down, you can drive hard through corners with the confidence that comes from Shimano hydraulic brakes, putting control at your fingertips and adrenaline in your veins.
Kona's Roadhouse is where you want to be, whether you're hammering out long weekend miles, or just rambling around with your riding buddies.

The Shimano 105/Ultegra drivetrain features 22 smooth-shifting speeds. A Novatec 30 Disc wheelset is wrapped in super tacky 30mm Schwalbe tires, and Shimano's RS505 hydraulic disc brakes put all the stopping power right under your fingers.
What do you get when you combine the fat-daddy Wo with the shred-tastic Honzo? Wozo, naturally, Kona’s gluttonous get-rad machine for those who can’t help but ride like madmen on any two-wheeled object in sight. Insanely short, 420mm chainstays on the flyweight aluminum frame put you in the hot seat for raucous acceleration and twisty singletrack domination, while a 100mm Bluto fork eats up extra-gnarly terrain to crank up the fun dial. With a 4.8-inch Jumbo Jim tire plowing up front and a 4.0-inch throttling up at the rear, you’ve got a recipe for rowdy. SRAM and RaceFace got together to spec Wozo’s crisp 1x11 drivetrain, so you can crawl up the softest hills and blast down gravity-rich descents. Shimano’s hydraulic brakes easily slow down those huge tires, so you can push it a little harder. For fat fun anywhere, in any weather, Wozo is your go-to.

Whatever drives you to grab a number plate and join the fray, Kona’s Hei Hei is prepared to get you to the finish line ahead of your competition. Its butted aluminum frame and RockShox Monarch RL shock gives you 100mm of rear travel, while a 120mm-travel RockShox fork floats across rock gardens. The wide, lightweight 29-inch WTB wheels fly up climbs and optimize the traction of the Maxxis Ardent and Ikon tires so you can fly through the flow and grip with confidence in loose corners. Shimano and RaceFace serve up eleven nicely spaced speeds with outstanding 1x chain retention. Shimano also provides hydraulic brakes that deliver the well-modulated braking you need to carry more speed more of the time. With the stiff 35mm Kona controls and a KS dropper post, you'll blow right past your buddy's fastest Strava time.
Kona went and made the ultralight trail demon that everyone always knew the Hei Hei had in its DNA.

A 140mm-travel RockShox Sektor fork offers the damping to mop up choppy trail and the fortitude to stand up to day after day riding. Its tubeless-ready WTB rims are race-light and trail-tough with the width to let Maxxis Minion and Tomahawk tires spread out with berm-railing stability and defiant traction. Spin up the Shimano 1 x 11-speed drivetrain via a RaceFace crank and fear no hill, up or down. Powerful Shimano hydraulic brakes maximize fun on the descents with impressive power and modulation. And, flick a lever to drop the KS dropper post when it's time to get rowdy.
From shuttle runs with your buddy's truck to zipping on a number plate, Kona's carbon Operator ushers in a fast era of downhilling with simple, plush suspension. This bike soaks up the biggest hits and rips with tons of maneuverability for the ideal combo of speed and handling. The RockShox Boxxer and Kage shock both sport 200mm of travel, plus external rebound and compression adjustments to set to your specifications and/or course and terrain needs. No matter what you're charging down, SRAM's powerful Guide R brakes give you smooth stopping power, while the 27.5-inch Sun Ringle wheels with Maxxis Minion DHF tires bite hard into lines for pinned cornering. Crank duty is handled by RaceFace, spinning SRAM gears spec'd for DH. Other shred-ready gear includes a Kona DH bar, direct mount stem, and seatpost, and an MRP chainguide. It doesn't get much better... or faster.
Kona’s Process 153 begs to be ridden harder, faster and in the gnarliest of places. This incredibly capable 27.5-inch all-mountain steed feels at home on everything from flowy trails to technical downhill trails. With a RockShox Monarch RT shock and 160mm-travel Yari fork, you’ll rail berms, huck the drop, and float across roots and rock gardens. SRAM’s 11-speed GX drivetrain has the range to get you to the top and won’t drop a chain as you fly through tech on your way down. The matching SRAM Guide R brakes offer precise modulation so you can easily scrub speed. The WTB wheels and Maxxis tires roll fast and bite through corners, while the KS dropper post lets you stay centered when you lean the bike hard.
Kona's Honza CR Race is what a cross-country hardtail should be: light, fast, and aggressive. The full carbon frame has short chain stays that deliver more power and a stiff front end for precise steering. A Fox 34 Float fork up front eats up 120mm of chunk and chatter while you nail your line and float to victory. WTB's 29-inch KOM rims and fast Maxxis Ikon EXO tires will have you passing competitors on the both the ups and the downs. A Shimano SLX/XT 11-speed drivetrain will help you crank out a lead, while the SLX brakes offer dialed control. Because World Cup courses are getting increasingly gnarly, Kona added internal dropper post routing to expand the bike’s capabilities even further, while maintaining its clean lines. Ride for fun, ride for glory, ride Honzo.
