29-Inch Wheel (29ers)
Taking the trail to new heights. Often imitated but never surpassed, the Altitude pushes the envelope of what a modern trail bike is capable of. The Altitude is our highly capable, fun, do-it-all trail bike. It's the perfect blend of pedaling efficiency, small-bump sensitivity, and has the ability to charge hard! The Altitude is easy to get along with, tackles whatever you throw at it, and helps boost confidence when looking to navigate a technical section of trail. The frame integrates next-generation features like Fox Live and Shimano Di2 compatibility while giving the rider the opportunity to tailor the bike to their riding style and terrain using our RIDE-9 adjustment system. - All new frame, ground-up design - Updated suspension, geometry & features - Adjustable chainstay length to suit the rider - Kinematics, fit & wheel size adjusted per size - Marzocchi Z1 with GRIP damper: stiffer and class-leading damping - Fox Float DPX2 reservoir shock: stays cool under pressure - Shimano I-Spec EV brakes for a tidy cockpit - Shimano 12spd drivetrain - Ergon grips to reduce rider fatigue Wheel size: Sizes Small – Medium: 27.5-inch Sizes Medium – X-Large: 29-inch Size Specific tune SUSPENSION: Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the right balance of small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and end-stroke progressiveness. Our design team does custom shock tunes based on real-world field testing and adjusts each tune for specific frame sizes. FORM alloy FRAME CONSTRUCTION: FORM tubesets utilize premium materials to meet our strict requirements. Each FORM tube that we create is engineered for its specific purpose within the frame, ensuring optimized strength, weight, and ride quality. RIDE-9 adjustment system GEOMETRY: The RIDE-9 adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of Allen keys. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chips. Adjust your RIDE-9 position for geometry before considering suspension effects, or variables like air pressure and shock compression. Make gradual, incremental changes, take notes, and be methodical. Don't adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process. Smoothlink suspension SUSPENSION: Smoothlink suspension is efficient yet supple when you're on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centered on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel. Smoothwall carbon FRAME CONSTRUCTION: Smoothwall carbon uses one of the world's most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry-leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. We eliminate excess resin and fibers by using rigid internal molds instead of traditional air bladders. We then utilize different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.
The Fusion is the perfect blend of efficiency, capability, and reliability on the trail. The Fusion's responsive handling characteristics and comfortable geometry will help you mix up your ride from the pathway, to the trail, and onto the singletrack. The Fusion's geometry has been optimized to provide you with the best possible experience when heading out for a ride. We've updated the geometry to reflect the needs of a true "downcountry" rider, including 29" wheels, a low standover height, longer reach, and a slacker head tube angle. With features like 100 mm of front travel, internal cable routing, and a 1x drivetrain, the Fusion sits at the top as our best all-around hardtail. - All new modern Downcountry geometry - Stable and fun - Lightweight alloy frame - Simple & reliable 1x drivetrain - Upgraded cassette: stronger construction for high torque - 10spd chain increases retention on 1x application - Stiffer cage spring rear derailleur for chain retention - Wider rims and tires for grip and control

Like a fresh fill of a West Coast IPA, the Growler packs a punch of confidence with its 29x2.6 tires. Cheers, eh! Push those pedals, hold the line, and enjoy what feels like infinite traction across rough terrain. The Growler is an incredibly capable hardtail that makes short work out of technical climbs, is ready to rail corners, and smooth out uneven ground. - Aggressive & progressive geometry - Designed around 29x2.6" tires - Boost 148mm rear hub - Full internal cables - Slayer fit & feel, in a hardtail - Updated geometry stretches reach - New Shimano 10spd drivetrain for increased chain management & wider range - Wider handlebar for better control
If the Undertaker rode a mountain bike, he’d undoubtedly ride the Process X DL. Aimed at nothing but ripping riders on the most technical of terrain, the Process X DL is a monster on the trails. A full carbon frame features the all-new RockShox Zeb Ultimate RC2 fork with 170mm of travel and a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock boasting 161mm of travel. A SRAM XO1 Eagle drivetrain provides maximum range when hitting the liaison stages between trails. We tossed on some ultra-burly Maxxis EXO+ casing tires—Assegai front and Minion DHR II rear—for the rough stuff. SRAM Code RSC brakes provide mega stopping power, but who needs brakes when you're this busy hauling ass? Kona Carbon Designed to be lightweight and built to demanding standards. Carbon fiber has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, we place our efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibers are in the right places. Our designers work very closely with our manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability, and—finally—weight stipulations that we expect from our bikes. Internal Headset Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. Tapered Head Tube More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed. Tubeless Compatible Rims Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance, the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance, and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems. 12x148mm Axle 12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. Beamer Independent Suspension Built to be off-the-top progressive, Beamer Independent Suspension helps the bike to stay higher in the travel and recover from hits more quickly. The Operators are instilled with what our product managers like to call "pure shock movement," whereby the shock is protected from side load. Designed to be highly tuneable and extremely durable, the Beamer IS is our version of greased lightning.
Taking a cue from the Hei Hei Trail, the Satori is a longer-travel cross country bike wrapped in an affordable package. 29-inch wheels keep the Satori rolling fast over obstacles while a RockShox Recon Gold 140mm travel fork and RockShox 130mm custom tuned Solo Air rear shock keep the ride smooth. With Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, Deore drive train, and a dropper post, you have everything you need right out of the box.
