OVERVIEW

Kona has a long history of cyclocross racing. We also have a history of making slightly off-the-wall, purpose-driven machines for real riders. Enter the Private Jake. Short chainstays, relatively low BB and a slack head angle, coupled with thru-axles front and rear, create an unmatched ride experience. Did we mention it could be a singlespeed? The single ring-specific frame comes stock with a race-ready Rival One drivetrain and tubeless wheels and tires. Get out there and rip! *Also available as frame/fork kit with front and rear thru axles.

Frame Features:
A brand new offering for 2016 season, the Private Jake frame features an adjustable 12x142 rear dropout and a new 15mm fork to provide a capable and versatile package for the privateer racer. The frame features internal routing for the rear derailleur and rear brake, a tapered head tube and PressFit 30 bottom bracket. The frame omits a front derailleur option in favor of shorter chainstays to improve power transfer and handling speed. The frame also makes a great single-speed race rig and has clearance for 40mm tires.

SPEC HIGHLIGHTS

  • All new CX frame design
  • Modular dropout system
  • 15x100mm front and 12x142 rear thru-axles
  • Tapered steer tube and PF30 BB
  • Clearance for 40mm tires

TECH

JAKE Cyclocross, Commuter

We are proud to introduce the most comprehensive collection of Jakes since we first started making cyclocross bikes in 1994. From UK National Champion Helen Wyman’s winning ways to the best junior development team in North America—Rad Racing, and every type of cross/commuter rider in between. We make a Jake that will help you go faster, farther, no matter where you ride.

KONA RACE LIGHT 7005 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.

TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance, better tire grip on the trail, lower rolling resistance and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.
