Even More 2019 MTB Hardtails Are Here

When we think about hardtails we go back. Way back. We’re talking 1988 when bikes were simple and hardtails were the greatest thing ever. They provided a means to a new kind of freedom that the old klunkers couldn’t quite handle. They took us further off road and down steeper pitches. Fast forward 30 years and our hardtails have evolved with the changing wheel sizes and feature lightweight components and modern geometry. They are the product of the test of time; they’re durable and hell of a lot of fun to ride.

 

Kona Blast
The Blast dabbles deeper into mountain biking’s trends. With a Shimano 1x drivetrain, tubeless ready rims, a Rockshox air sprung fork, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and 27.5” wheels, the Blast steps it up, ensuring you have the confidence needed to tackle tougher trails. Available in S-XL.


Kona Fire Mountain
This Kona classic brings some of the finer things to light. Feel true stopping power with hydraulic disc brakes, adjustable 100mm of Suntour suspension, a 9 speed Shimano drivetrain and sturdy WTB tires, the Fire Mountain helps build confidence off-road. Available for smaller riders in a 26” XS version and a 27.5” wheel for sizes S-XL.


 

The Lana’i
The Lana’i could be considered the gateway mountain bike. Offered in size XS with 26” wheels or S-XL with 27.5” wheels, there’s a perfect size for everyone. With a Shimano drivetrain, Tektro disc brakes, and a 100mm travel fork the Lana’i is the perfect way to dip your toes in the dirt.



Kona Lava Dome
The Lava Dome is kind of like your best friend, but in bike form. It’s awesome in the dirt. It’s awesome to rally around town. It’s awesome poking around neighborhood singletrack, and it does it all in a dependable way. 29” wheels and a frame that’s been steadfast longer than most of your friends, the Lava Dome is the bike buddy you’ve always wanted.

The Kona Unit Moves into 2019

You are an artist, and the Unit is your canvas. Singlespeed singletrack machine? Yep. Loaded up for a quick overnight or an extended bikepacking trip? Yep. Add whatever drivetrain you like? Yep. Reynolds 520 cromoly gives that unmistakable smooth ride, and the simplicity of a single speed drivetrain keeps your options open. Because you want to do it your way, and we’re cool with that.


Kona Unit
Multiple personalities can be a great thing. The Reynolds Cromoly Unit has many faces and you get to decide which to use. Whether you need a bikepacking guru, or want a fully rigid single speed masher, or perhaps the ultimate steel 29er, the Unit makes the perfect companion. Spec’d with 27.5+ wheels but capable of running 29” wheels, the Unit comes with a full length freehub body in case you want to run gears.

Kona Unit X
For those who love the idea of the Unit’s versatility but want something a bit more capable of climbing, we offer the Unit X. Sharing a Reynolds 520 Cromoly frame with the Unit, the Unit X brings a SRAM 11 speed drivetrain, SRAM Level T brakes, and standard 135QR dropouts in a dropper post-ready frame.
