Product Details

2016 Kona Operator 27.5

From backflips to pinning on a number plate, Kona's Operator 27.5 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 fork 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 discs give you smooth stopping power, while the hard-charging Mavic 27.5-inch wheels with Maxxis tires bite into lines for pinned cornering. Other gravity-fueled gear includes a precision SRAM/Shimano drivetrain, a Kona DH bar, stem and seatpost, and a Hive chainguide. It doesn't get much better... or faster.
