The Libre DL is the ultimate adventure machine. Our Race Light Carbon frame, new Kona Verso Carbon Touring fork, Easton EA70AX wheels, and SRAM Force 1 components make this thing a rocket ship on any kind of hill. And by any hill we mean that: gravel grind, monster singletrack climb, or a weekend haul over a mountain pass. The Libre DL knows no limits. Important! Libre sizing is measured by the seat tube, not the top tube. 55, the biggest size, has a 61 cm top tube, whereas 46, the smallest size, has a 54 cm top tube. See the geo chart in the picture gallery. The spec sheet says that the shifter/levers are 105; in fact they are Ultegra.

Once upon a time a bunch of mountain bikers dreamed up something wild: a drop bar bike that felt like a mountain bike and rode like a mountain bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes and 1x drivetrain. It had a wider bar with a 16-degree flare that made for more aggressive descending. The Sutra LTD came to reality in all of its dreamy glory and is an absolute riot on-road or off. “The Sutra LTD is without a doubt a drop-bar bike built for off-road adventure. In addition to its ability to clear 29x2.1” tires, and a smorgasbord of bottle and rack mounts, it’s almost unmatched in the mainstream bike market for its mountain-bike like character.” - Bikepacking.com Note that the 2019 Sutra Ltd comes with faster-rolling, more supple, slightly narrower (700x45) tires, not the 2.1" tires mentioned in the quote above.

The Libre is the product of years of dreaming up the ultimate carbon dream machine. It's part road bike, part gravel grinder, and entirely badass. A Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain ensures plenty of gear range, while WTB 650b tubeless ready wheels and tires give a supple ride on pavement and fast, confident control on gravel. Kona's new Versa carbon fork is one of the few on the market that allows for multiple rack and mounting options. Important! Libre sizing is measured by the seat tube, not the top tube, for some reason. This could lead to a lot of confusion. The 55 Libre will fit like a 61, the 54 like a 58, the 51 like a 55 or 56, and so on. The geo chart can be found in the picture gallery. Don't hesitate to ask us for sizing guidance.
