2016 PROCESS 153 (27.5)

Ride everything with supreme confidence. The Process 153 is a wildly capable all-mountain machine, from trail through to technical DH. Our World Cup racers break out the 153 on more pedally tracks, due to its supreme confidence at speed. If you’re an aggressive mountain biker looking for the quiver killer, the 153 is for you. The industry-leading revolution in mountain-bike geometry started with the Process platform. The short stem for stiff and quick handling mated with lengthy reach numbers for a confidence-inspiring overall fit and long front center for stability at speed. Add short chainstays, to maintain maneuverability in technical situations, and a low BB for an in-the-bike feel. The lowest standover possible on all sizes, while short chainstays benefit cornering, jump-ability and overall bike stiffness.

2016 PRECEPT 150 (27.5)

A brand new model for 2016, the Precept 150 has been added to the platform as a capable alternative to the Process 153. Geometry, suspension control and components have been incorporated to hold up to heavy trail abuse without hurting your pocketbook. Featuring a new tubeset and fit geometry that matches the Process line, Kona’s 2016 Precept framesets now feature long reach, short stem, long front center, good standover and a compact rear triangle. The Swinger Independent Suspension platform also sees its leverage rate curve refined to improve overall performance: more consistent in the beginning, with an overall more intuitive and predictable feel.

2016 HEI HEI TRAIL (29er)

Featuring the same new frame as featured on the Hei Hei Race models, one that’s confident, fast, light and oh so fun, the Hei Hei Trail is specifically oriented towards committed cross-country riders who want a little more diversity out of their rig. With 120mm of front suspension and a component package that’s more Trail than Race, this is a singletrack samurai. The new Hei Hei platform centers around our new Fuse Independent Suspension—a clean, simple design that eliminates a pivot at the chainstay seatstay junction to create a lighter, stiffer ride feel. The frame itself features low-slung frame weight and excellent standover, highlighted by a rider fit that incorporates a short stem, long front center and compact rear triangle. Overall an extremely capable, light, quick, and performance-savvy cross-country dual-suspension frame design.

2016 WO (Fat Bike)

Sand, snow, surf, mulch, mud, bog: the Wo goes everywhere—with glacier-wide smiles along the way. We don’t like the idea of telling our customers when and where and how they can ride their bikes. That’s why we created the Wo, the do whatever-the-hell-you-want mack daddy of them all. Go everywhere anywhere whenever in style. New for 2016, the front hub spacing is now 150x15mm, the fork uses a thru axle and has been updated to be RockShox Bluto suspension-fork compatible. The frame also features a new tapered head tube, which helps provides a stiffer front end and more precise steering control.

2016 Kona BLAST (27.5)

Everything we have learned has gone into creating this year’s Blast, nearly three decades of life loving the trail. This is the perfect ride for anyone looking to go farther and deeper down the endless trail of smile-cracking, wicked good times. A from-the-ground-up re-think of our hardtail mountain bikes. First, we’re introducing size increments that ensure we hit every type of rider. Now you can get closer to having a custom fit between a size structure (S, M, L, XL) that’s consistent across our entire range of mountain bikes. New aspects of the geometry are related to the ride and handling, with slacker head tube angles, lower bottom brackets and shorter chainstays. The result is a more capable bike for more challenging terrain, without comprising speed and efficiency when under power.
