New Kahuna offers value and fresh geometry
The Kahuna is the bike for the person who is ready to get serious about riding singletrack but doesn’t want to spend serious cash. Kona has updated the geometry for 2020 to allow for greater tyre clearance and better overall handling. The Kahuna is outfitted with a 1x SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain, RockShox suspension, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and fast-rolling, tubeless-ready WTB 29" rims. The Kahuna is the complete package!
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.
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.
Tubeless compatible rims
Tubeless rims allow for tyres with more puncture resistance and offer the ability to run lower tyre pressure, which provides better grip on the trail. They also lower rolling resistance and save weight over traditional tube and tyre systems.
