Project Description

Designed to conquer a wide variety of terrain and riding styles, the Kona Process 111 excels on everything from high alpine singletrack to aggressive technical descending. Short chainstays, a low-slung frame weight and long front center—key hallmarks of the Process platform—enable this 111 to be one of the most playful and capable dual-suspension mountain bikes ever made.

“A sweet-handling, good natured kick in the pants to ride just about anywhere.” -Bike Magazine

Frame Features:
The industry-leading revolution in mountain-bike geometry started with the Process platform. The short stem for stiff and quick handling mated with lengthy reach numbers for a confidence-inspiring overall fit and long front center for stability at speed. Add short chainstays, to maintain maneuverability in technical situations, and a low BB for an in-the-bike feel. The lowest standover possible on all sizes, while short chainstays benefit cornering, jump-ability and overall bike stiffness. New frame features for 2016 on the 111: a lighter seat tube, seat tube gusset and chainstay.
