When your destination is the podium and the journey to get there is a gnarled, technical test of cross-country skill, fitness, and sheer guts, you’ll be glad you’re on Kona’s Hei Hei Supreme. Its Race Light Carbon frame and RockShox MOnarch XX shock keep you and the bike light enough to float over the rough stuff while passing racers on the climbs. A stiff RockShox RS-1 fork ensures precise steering and efficient traction through rock gardens. WTB provides stiff, lightweight carbon C124 rims, and Kona wraps them in Maxxis Pace rubber, so you'll rip and grip with minimal weight. SRAM's 12-speed Eagle drivetrain, with its 10-50T cassette performs flawlessly as you fly up and down the course. SRAM's Level Ultimate brakes will help you keep the speed in check with smooth modulation and solid reliability. Same race distance divided by a higher average speed equals…well, you do the math.
Kona went and made the ultralight trail demon that everyone always knew the Hei Hei had in its DNA. The low-slung carbon frame features short stays, a long front-center, and 140mm of trail-eating travel. The RockShox Deluxe RT3 and Pike RCT3 are ready for whatever rowdy chunder you throw at them. Carbon WTB rims laced to Hope hubs roll on tubeless-ready Maxxis Tomahawk tires, giving you quick acceleration, instant engagement, and loads of grip. SRAM’s incredible 12-speed Eagle drivetrain gets you up the mountain with a huge gear range, flawless shifting, and weight savings you can feel on every pedal stroke, while the SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes keep you rubber-side-down with adjustable and precise modulation. RaceFace’s 35mm bar and stem and a KS Integra dropper post turn the dial that last little bit to leave you all-out-stoked.
Kona's Supreme Operator is built exactly for what you want it to do: go downhill really fast. The burly DH aluminum frame relies on a RockShox Kage to deliver 200mm of highly tunable travel, matched by a BoXXer WC fork up front. This suspension royalty keeps Novatec’s incredible, tubeless-ready Demon wheelset stuck to the trail, rolling on Maxxis Minion DHFs for unrelenting stability, traction, and DH toughness you can count on. SRAM's X01 DH drivetrain puts a compact, high-test 7-speed gear range behind your pedals, and Guide Ultimate brakes offer industry-leading smoothness, power, and customization. And, ODI knows heavy duty, so you know their cockpit components will keep you piloting with the confidence required to make the big moves, while a WTB Hightail saddle gives you weightless control. Grab the Supreme Operator and set a new PR.
You're in full lycra glory as you line up for Saturday morning's cross-country race, but Sunday afternoon is all about baggies, friends, and probably a beer or two. Kona's Hei Hei Supreme makes the transition as easily as you do. The Race Light Carbon frame features Kona's Fuse Independent Suspension and a RockShox Monarch XX shock for 100mm of efficient, traction-loving travel. A 120mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork ensures precise steering, small bump compliance, and a love for those bigger bumps. 29-inch WTB carbon Ci31 wheels offer instant acceleration, will hold their speed, and are tough enough for rowdy, rock-filled descents. SRAM's 12-speed Eagle drivetrain gives you quick, solid shifting and a gear-range that's ready for the steepest grades and the fastest sprints. A big engine needs powerful brakes, so Kona hooked it up with SRAM's Guise RSCs for all the control and modulation you could ask for. A KS dropper post and stiff, wide RaceFace cockpit give you an edge on your competition and extra fun all around.
