Progressive cross country race and trail bike

For the rider who wants to travel light and fast but is seeking something affordable, the aluminium Hei Hei reigns supreme. With a Rockshox Sektor 120mm fork and a Monarch Solo Air rear shock, the ride will always be lively when needed, but plush when it matters. Coupled with a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, the Hei Hei answers all needs in a simple package.

Kona Race Light 6061 aluminium

Kona Race Light 6061 is a lighter, more performance-oriented fabrication of Kona's 6061 tubing. Designed to meet the company's discerning race specifications, Race Light 6061 is custom butted to create thicker tubes at weld areas and important parts of the frame, providing incredible strength and torsional integrity to the feel of the ride. Kona removes wall thickness in other parts of the frameset to lighten up the bike, giving the perfect balance between quickness and stiffness.

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.

12x148mm axle

12x148 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 148 outer hub diameter allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. The 12x148 boost spacing also provides more tyre clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.

Fuse Independent Suspension

The Fuse Independent Suspension is designed to be as lightweight and efficient as possible, oriented specifically for the demands of the modern XC trail rider. Like all of Kona's suspension platforms, the Fuse IS is designed around a single pivot with a predictable leverage ratio for a responsive, snappy feel. Built for Kona's Hei Hei platform, the frame features a seat stay that relies on small degrees of frame flex rather than a pivot at the seat and chainstay junction. The result is an efficient, laterally stiff suspension system that takes weight savings to a new level.
