OVERVIEW

At Kona, we’re all about making bikes that defy description. Bikes that defy simple description. Bikes with personality. Bikes just like you. Bikes that like to ride fast, go everywhere, embrace adventure. Steel because it rules. Big wheels because they’re smooth. The Big Rove is the ultimate adventure bike, a cross between the drop bar Rove bikes, with a dash of mountain flavor. Bigger tires, tougher package, deeper into everywhere.

Frame Features:
The Big Rove has a replaceable rear hanger, as well as hidden fender eyelets. The head tube becomes 1 ⅛" and the fork is comparable to the Sutra, with a longer A/C and slightly more clearance with 50mm offset.

TECH

ROVE Cyclocross, Touring, Commuter

What started as one model three years ago has grown into an entire family of bikes. Our ever-popular Rove is the bike that knows no bounds. From gravel epics to high-mountain passes, cross-country sojourns to the odd snippet of singletrack. This year the Rove group offers models for every type of cycling adventurist. Choose yours and go.

KONA CROMOLY

Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We’ve never strayed from cycling’s original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.
