Project Description

Enjoy the evolution of Kona’s legendary XC Race hardtail. The Kona Kahuna is the perfect ride for mountain bikers looking to take cross-country riding a little deeper, quicker and farther. The all-new Kahuna has the same fit of the DDL, but with a performance-oriented component package that is lighter on the almighty pocketbook.

Frame Features:
A from-the-ground-up re-think of Kona’s hardtail mountain bikes. First, they’re introducing size increments that ensure they hit every type of rider. Now you can get closer to having a custom fit between a size structure (S, M, L, XL) that’s consistent across their entire range of mountain bikes. New aspects of the geometry are related to the ride and handling, with slacker head tube angles, lower bottom brackets and shorter chainstays. The result is a more capable bike for more challenging terrain, without comprising speed and efficiency when under power.
