How do you take a race-ready cross-country machine and make it into the bike you ride everyday? Kona shows us how with their Big Kahuna, a svelte, race-ready aluminum hardtail with plus-sized 27.5 x 2.8-inch Schwalbes to grab handfuls of traction and float over gnarly terrain. These meaty tires raise the fun factor along with the bike’s versatility, enhanced by a 100mm RockShox Recon RL fork that keeps the front end tracking and your excitement high. That all-important rubber is well-supported by a pair of 40mm-wide WTB Scraper rims which are light enough to make their formidable strength seem impossible. All this rolling stock gets moving thanks to drivetrain components from Shimano and RaceFace, married in a 2x10-speed system with go-anywhere range. And, Shimano’s hydraulic disc brakes give you braking abilities that’ll make you contemplate equipping the bike with a seatbelt. Defy traditional bike boundaries and see what you can do on a Big Kahuna.
Kona’s Big Honzo takes the playful, slack geometry Honzo uses to light up singletrack, and ups the ante with bigger rubber and bigger fun. With 27.5 x 2.8 Maxxis Rekon tires wrapped around WTB’s Scraper rims, your footprint opens up like a sled-dog’s paw, aggressively clawing earth and floating over terrain with ease. Kona really wants you to use ALL that extra traction, so they hook you up with a stiff, nimble aluminum frame that squeezes speed out of descents and begs to be swooped through corners. A RockShox Recon Silver fork plows through chunky trails with 120mm of go-fast travel, so you can rip through the gears of your 11-speed SRAM NX drivetrain. And, while we know you love to go fast, everyone eventually has to scrub some speed to nail a line. Take heart, Shimano’s got your back with a pair of burly hydraulic disc brakes that’ll slow you down in a hurry, especially with all that grip. Add the solid control offered by Kona’s durable cockpit parts with a work-and-play dropper post, and you’ve got a rig that’ll keep you grinning for hours on end.

In order to squeeze every last ounce of fun out of the trail, you need a bike that can take a hit and dish it right back out 10-fold. In other words, you need the Rhyme Comp 6Fattie/29. To start, it lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine. For the construction, we built it from our superlative M5 alloy that's lightweight and durable, and gave it a whole host of women's-specific components that tailor the ride to you. This means that you'll get a custom-tuned RockShox Monarch RT rear shock with 150mm of travel, bars and cranks that are sized proportionately to female riders, and the fan-favorite Body Geometry Myth Sport saddle. Of course, the rest of the build spec is awesome, with SRAM's 11-speed GX one-by shifting, powerful Guide R hydraulic disc, and fast- rolling Roval Traverse alloy wheels. - M5 alloy Trail Chassis with Rhyme FSR alloy rear end blends durability, stiffness, and light weight, while 150mm of travel provides more than capable handling. - A RockShox Reba RL fork handles suspension up front with ease, soaking up bumpy terrain with 150mm of plush travel. - SRAM's 11-speed GX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
