OVERVIEW

The 2016 Rove ST truly represents the do-all CX bike. Ride in your local CX race, take a weekend bike tour, do that gravel grinder or just ride it however, wherever. The Rove ST has a deserved cult status among discerning riders and represents the perfect blend of off-road sensibilities with timeless design. One of the bikes that helps keep Kona weird.

“An overwhelmingly positive experience.” –Cycling Active UK

Frame Features:
The Rove receives the same fit as our new CX geometry but with a slightly lower bottom bracket to provide a bit more stability. The bikes are also designed around a slightly larger tire clearance than the CX platform for the road less traveled. The frame borrows a lot of the design cues from the new Sutra and uses the same replaceable hanger and hidden fender eyelets. The fork is also similar and uses a single low rider mount instead of the water-bottle bosses. The new frame and fork is lighter than previous versions and uses a slightly thinner tube set than the Sutra to provide a very smooth and comfortable ride.

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.
