Kona 6061 aluminium delivers reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides
The Lava Dome has been a staple of the Kona lineup for years and now it’s even better, with an updated geometry for ride quality
Hardtail sports bike
The Lava Dome is kind of like your best friend, but in bike form. It’s awesome in the dirt. It’s awesome to rally around town. It’s awesome poking around neighbourhood singletrack, and it does it all in a dependable way.
Kona has updated the geometry to make the ride quality even better and also improve tyre clearances. With 29" wheels and a bike that’s been in Kona's lineup longer than you’ve known most of your friends, the Lava Dome is the bike you can count on for all of the basics.
Kona 6061 aluminium
Kona 6061 aluminium is a tough, durable, light alloy, delivering fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of Kona's 6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so the company can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.
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 itself 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.
