“I have to say, for their first real soiree into the trail specific e-bike world Kona have created a bloody good all-round package.”

“I admit that I was a little curious to see if the bike’s 132mm of rear travel was going to be enough to handle the style of riding that rocks my boat… As soon as the single track started, that question mark dissolved as the bike ate up all of the rocky and roots and rollovers that the trail had in store.”

Connor Fearon is the Australian National Enduro Champion

Over the weekend, in Connor Fearon’s hometown of Adelaide, South Australia, he unleashed a can of ass whooping on a stacked Aussie field at the Gravity Enduro National Championships and pulled off total stage domination over the two days racing. His eight first places would give him and the Process 153 CR DL 29 he was riding the title by over a minute.

“For the second year running the Enduro National Champs were held in my hometown of Adelaide, SA at the Fox Creek trail network. The race was a two-day event with eight stages split over the two days. I chose to race my 29er as a lot of the stages are fast rolling and it feels a bit easier to keep the momentum going with the big wheels. I know Fox Creek like the back of my hand so it definitely was an advantage I had over all the competition from out of state. Although there were some new sections built for the weekend which were really technical and challenging. I had eight perfect stages with no crashes or mechanicals and the Process ended up being the bike to beat! I had a clean sweep and ended up with the title once the weekend was done.” – Connor Fearon

Australian Kona Gravity rider Shelly Flood piloted her Process 153 CR DL to second place in the elite women’s category, finishing just 33.18 seconds behind the women’s winner. In the process, she took out two stage wins
