TECH

ORIGINALS MTB Trail, XC Trail

Introducing a new platform grouping for 2016: the Originals—our ever-evolving Kona staples that have graced millions of miles of trail the world over. From the cult flow of the fully rigid, singlespeed Unit, to the storied performance and reliability of the Cinder Cone, Blast, Explosif and Lana’i. These are the bikes that built our reputation. And we build them today with innovation that never sleeps and performance that makes the Kona Ride as sweet as honey.

KONA 6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, affordable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, allowing us to fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

2016 Kona 7005/6061 bikes: Lana'i, Fire Mountain, Tika, Lava Dome, Mahuna, Kahuna, Stinky 24, WO, Shred, Process 111 DL, Process 111, Process 134 Supreme, Process 134 DL, Process 134, Process 153 DL, Process 153, Process 167, Operator 27.5, Shonky AL, Honzo AL, Honzo AL/DL, Coco, Shred 24, Shred 20, Hula, Makena, Jake 24, Big Rove AL, Rove AL, Dew Deluxe, Dew Plus, Dewey, Dew , Precept 200, Ute, Precept 120, Precept 130, Precept 150

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.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

Register a new 2016 Kona bike within three months of purchase, and the original owner qualifies the Kona frame for a free Lifetime Warranty. Note: this does not apply to Kona Carbon models.

The original owner shall pay all labor charges connected with the repair or replacement of all parts.

LIFETIME LIMITED WARRANTY ON BICYCLE FRAME
When warranty on non-carbon Kona bikes and frames is NOT registered within three months of purchase, Kona warrants to the original owner that the frame of this new Kona bicycle purchased from an authorized Kona dealer shall be free of defective materials or workmanship for a three-year period. IF THE WARRANTY IS REGISTERED WITH KONA WITHIN THREE MONTHS AFTER THE PURCHASE OF THE BICYCLE, THE WARRANTY IS EXTENDED FOR THE LIFETIME OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER, with the exception of carbon bikes and frames. During warranty period, Kona shall repair or replace, at its sole option, the bicycle frame if Kona determines the frame is defective and subject to this limited warranty. The original owner shall pay all labor and shipping charges connected with the repair or replacement of the bicycle frame.
