KAHUNA

Kahuna DL

OVERVIEW

You race on the weekends and battle with your buddies every Tuesday. In between, you’re ripping through fantastic miles of sweet singletrack. Meet your new best friend. A complete frame redesign infuses our legendary XC 29-inch hardtail racer with new weaponry when it comes to comfort, control and speed.

Frame Features:
Featuring the same all-new front triangle as the Kahuna DDL and Honzo, the Kahuna DL represents 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.

KAHUNA XC Race, XC Trail

The legendary Kahuna series cross-country hardtails comes reborn in 2016. Brand new geometry and frame features take this lightning quick and super capable 29-inch hardtail singletrack shredder to new heights of performance.

KONA RACE LIGHT 6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona Race Light 7005/6061 are lighter, more performance-oriented fabrications of our 7005/6061 tubing. Designed to meet Kona’s discerning race specifications, Race Light 7005/6061 use custom butting to create thicker tubes at weld areas and important parts of the frame, providing incredible strength and torsional integrity to the feel of the ride. We remove wall thickness in other parts of the frameset to lighten up the bike, giving the perfect balance between quickness and stiffness.

INTERNAL HEADSETS

The major benefit of an internal headset, whereby the bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable, is the extra layer of protection it provides the bearings against the elements. 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 positive 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.
