The Honzo was the first deep, trail-capable hardtail. Its progressive geometry would be revised over the years, but its playful attitude hasn't changed a bit. It's the 29 that doesn't feel like a 29, the reliable friend who's always ready to party and goes through thick and thin with you.
12 x 148 mm rear axle
12 x 142 mm, 12 x 148 mm and 12 x 157 mm rear axle standards offer two main advantages for Kona riders: the 12 mm diameter of the rear axle ensures maximum stability on the rear hub and frame, while the 142/148/157 mm outer diameter of the hub ensures that the wheel is fast and correctly positioned in the frame before the rear axle can be used. From 2016, the 12x148 mm standard will be available as a mix, especially on the new alloy Honzo. 12x148 offers more tyre clearance on the chain stay, while the rear wheel is more stable and durable compared to a 12 x 142 mm thru axle.
Kona 6061 aluminium
Kona 7005 and 6061 aluminium alloys are widely used in mountain and asphalt bicycles. A rugged, durable light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061, offer fantastic, reliable performance that enables thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tube is tapered and / or shaped, which means that the wall thickness of the tube can be both increased or decreased and shaped so that we can fine-tune the strength and ride characteristics of a particular frame depending on the intended application.
Tapered head tube
More circumference on the underside of the head tube distributes the shock better, prolongs the headset's bearing life and eliminates brake shock while providing safe steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the driver more control on uneven terrain.
