A Kona carbon frame puts the highest emphasis on performance by putting the right fibres in the right places
Maxxis All Terrane tyres keep speed and composure over a wide range of CX race conditions. The knobs dig in when the course gets loose, but are speedy on harder surfaces
Srams rival 1X groupset will give you a fantastic gear range and improved chain retention for when the course gets rough.
Hydraulic brakes give you more power and modulation letting brake later into every corner.
From cyclocross podiums to long training rides
The Major Jake is the perfect bike for the serious racer who is still looking for something they can take on long cross-training rides. The full carbon frame and fork make light work of climbs and punchy, steep obstacles. 700x33c Maxxis All Terrane tyres, SRAM Rival 1x drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes make this bike race-ready right out of the box.
Designed to be lightweight and built to demanding standards. Carbon fibre has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, Kona has placed its efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibres are in the right places. Its designers work closely with the manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability and – finally – weight stipulations that Kona expects from its bikes.
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.
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 142 outer hub diameter allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
