Rough trails are short work for a RockShox Recon Gold fork that keeps you stuck to the line you carved out with fast-rolling Maxxis tires.

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 but had the speed of a road bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption and ride quality, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes, a 1x drivetrain and beefy yet fast-rolling 700x50c tires. 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 Kona Sutra LTD is a drop-bar bike “designed by mountain bikers, for mountain bikers.” As simple as that statement may sound, the result is one of the most versatile, category-shattering rigs in the mainstream bike market.” – Logan Watts, Bikepacking.com Specs and geo chart: konaworld.com
Kona’s Big Honzo DL takes the playful, slack geometry Honzo uses to light up singletrack, and ups the ante with bigger rubber and bigger fun.

Kona really wants you to use ALL that extra traction, so they hook you up with a stiff, nimble aluminum frame that squeezes speed out of descents and begs to be swooped through corners. A RockShox Revelation fork makes short work of technical sections and plows through chunky trails with 120mm of go-fast travel, so you can rip through the gears of your 11-speed SRAM NX/GX drivetrain. And, while we know you love to go fast, everyone eventually has to scrub some speed to nail a line. Take heart, Shimano’s got your back with a pair of burly hydraulic disc brakes that’ll slow you down in a hurry, especially with all that grip. Add the solid control offered by Kona’s durable cockpit parts with a work-and-play dropper post, and you’ve got a rig that’ll keep you grinning for hours on end.
What do you get when you combine the fat-daddy Wo with the shred-tastic Honzo? Wozo, naturally, Kona’s gluttonous get-rad machine for those who can’t help but ride like madmen on any two-wheeled object in sight. Insanely short, 420mm chainstays on the flyweight aluminum frame put you in the hot seat for raucous acceleration and twisty singletrack domination, while a 100mm Bluto fork eats up extra-gnarly terrain to crank up the fun dial. With a 4.8-inch Jumbo Jim tire plowing up front and a 4.0-inch throttling up at the rear, you’ve got a recipe for rowdy. SRAM and RaceFace got together to spec Wozo’s crisp 1x11 drivetrain, so you can crawl up the softest hills and blast down gravity-rich descents.
