Product Details

2016 Kona Sutra

Kona's Sutra is perfect for weekend escapes, your daily commute, and even epic adventures, like a dream tour around the world. The heart of this do-everything rig is Kona's efficient, great-handling and smooth-riding chromoly frameset that gets up to speed with ease and glides over even the roughest roads. This versatile machine rolls on a quality wheelset with WTB rims, Shimano Deore hubs, stainless-steel spokes and mileage-consuming Clement tires. It also boasts excellent components, including powerful Hayes disc brakes for all-weather braking excellence, and a precision 27-speed Shimano drivetrain so that you have the right gearing for any terrain and any load. The Sutra comes complete with a rear rack so you can carry as much gear as you want and still enjoy a stable, predictable and easy-riding bicycle. And, there are even fenders to protect you and your cargo. You'll also appreciate the supportive, classic Brooks B17 leather saddle as you pedal over the horizon to parts unknown on your awesome 2-wheel RV.

What sets the Sutra apart from our other touring bikes, such as the Surly Disc Trucker, Salsa Marrakesh, and Marin Four Corners? Kona gave the Sutra a cyclocross geometry for a quicker, snappier, more responsive ride. But they also used heavier-gauge tubing than you find on cyclocross bikes. The result is a touring bike for those of us who don't plan on riding around with 80 lbs. of stuff. For light to moderate touring loads, the Sutra can't be beat.

What sets the Sutra apart from the likes of the Salsa Vaya and Surly Straggler? The Sutra has a touring-specific drivetrain, including a triple crankset. The others have double cranksets, giving you less low-end gearing than you'll probably need when touring with, say, 40 lbs. of stuff on hilly roads.
