The Rove NRB SE is the evolution of the bike that was a gravel bike before this category even existed. Kona has combined a brand new frame set including flat mount and thru axle mounts with the legendary Kona riding characteristics to create a modern Randonneur that once again transcends all boundaries.
Rims compatible with tubeless tyres
Tubeless compatible rims allow tyres with greater puncture resistance, better tyre grip on track, lower rolling resistance and weight savings compared to conventional tube and tyre systems.
12 x 142 mm rear axle
12 x 142 mm, 12 x 148 and 12 x 157 rear axle standards offer two main advantages for Kona riders: the 12 mm diameter of the rear axle ensures maximum stability in 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 12 x 148 standard will be available as a mix, especially on the new Honzo alloy. 12 x 148 offers more tyre clearance on the chainstay, while the rear wheel is more stable and durable compared to a 12 x 142 thru axle.
650b wheels and tyres have an overall diameter similar to traditional 700c gravel or commuter tyres, but the rim diameter is smaller and the tyres wider and larger. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban tyres means that they are still comfortable to drive at lower pressure while rolling fast over a variety of surfaces. The best of both worlds united!
Kona 6061 Aluminium
Kona 7005 and 6061 aluminium alloys are widely used in our fleet of 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 butted 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.
