Consistency across all terrain

The Process 134 is Kona would consider a bit of a classic bike. It’s well-loved by the company and its customers, so Kona is keeping it rolling. Affordability and durability make the 140mm travel Process 134 a special blend. It’s got just enough travel to be stout enough to ride over a wide variety of terrain, while still having the playful, snappy feel the Process line is known for.

Kona 6061 aluminium

Kona 6061 aluminium is a tough, durable, light alloy, delivering fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of the tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so that Kona can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

Internal headset

Bearing cups are pressed into the frame and are easily removable. 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 and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident 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 – maximising bearing durability where it’s needed.

12x142mm axle

12x142mm rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: The 12mm diameter provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142mm outer hub diameter allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.

Rocker Independent Suspension 

With the Rocker Independent Suspension, Kona set out to design a platform that was as compact and low-slung on the frame as possible for maximum standover, stiffness and manoeuvrability. The company built an efficient pedalling platform with a consistent leverage rate curve that perfectly matches modern air shocks and provides a predictable feel throughout the travel. All this translates into a capable climber that is insanely confident, with plush downhill performance. Exclusively found on the Process line of bikes.

27.5" wheels

The benefits of the 27.5-inch wheel are simple: They roll over obstacles and track better than 26-inch wheels, but are more manoeuvrable and nimble than 29-inch ones.
