Meet Honzo. He's an aluminum 29er hardtail that lays waste to technical singletrack. He's aggressive, confident and ready to charge with a 68-degree head angle, low BB and short chainstays. He's also fully capable with a 120mm Recon fork sporting a 15mm through-axle for front-end stiffness. The drivetrain is happily uncluttered with a 1x10 Shimano setup with RaceFace cranks and an Narrow/Wide chainring. It powers the tubeless-ready 29-inch WTB rims wrapped with fat Maxxis Ardent rubber—real tires for real trails. Kona is known for its hardcore hardtails, and the Honzo continues the tradition in rowdy style.
