Multiple Bike-of-the-Year awards speak for themselves. The Ute is a well-designed, carry-everything utility bike that makes quick work of trips to the store, dropping the kids off at school, and bringing the tree home for the holidays. The 7005 aluminum frame keeps it light and strong, and a Shimano 18-speed drivetrain supplies plenty of gearing for spinning up steep hills and across long flat roads alike. And for maintaining control under load, front and rear hydraulic disc brakes put the power down when you need it most. No utility vehicle would be complete without the necessary cargo-carrying essentials, so Kona throws in a composite rear deck with left- and right-side bags for all your haulin' needs. Finally, a kickstand and front and rear fenders finish this extremely versatile build, giving you the opportunity to do more — maybe everything! — by bike.

These meaty tires raise the fun factor along with the bike’s versatility, enhanced by a 100mm RockShox Recon RL fork that keeps the front end tracking and your excitement high. That all-important rubber is well-supported by a pair of 40mm-wide WTB Scraper rims which are light enough to make their formidable strength seem impossible. All this rolling stock gets moving thanks to drivetrain components from Shimano and RaceFace, married in a 2x10-speed system with go-anywhere range.

Kona really wants you to use ALL that extra traction, so Big Honzo is stiff and nimble, squeezing speed out of descents and begging to be swooped through corners. It uses 148 x 12mm Boost spacing and super-short chainstays to tuck in your rear wheel for tight handling and rowdy acceleration, while the long reach and front center get you into a powerful position for aggressive descending. This all adds up to a frame that's ready to go fast on the way up AND down.
