Project Description

Fully rigid singlespeeders of the world unite: 29-inch wheels, a sweet cromoly frameset that takes trails of all types and fills them full with fun. Just like the Big Unit, the Kona Unit frame pulls out all the stops, with alternate dropouts available fore a geared set up. All at a price that will make you go, “Sweet Unit!”

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 tubes 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.
