Crankworx 2018

Kona Riders Tackle Crankzilla at the Whistler Round of the EWS

Leah Maunsell secures second place at EWS in La Thuile, Italy

Day one was a tough day in the saddle. Weather conditions forced the stages to run in reverse order. Trail conditions had changed massively since practice so it was hectic trying to find grip. I had a pretty messy day with lots of silly mistakes

Scott Countryman’s 2018 Trans BC Diary

Kona Dream Builds: Alexander Kangas’ Ohlins equipped G2 Process

Swedish-based Alexander Kangas has been riding for Kona since 2015 and for the last couple of years, he’s been attacking the EWS full time as a privateer with little to no mechanical support. He’s racked up some solid results over this time, most notably in Millau,

PB and J: The Kona Global Enduro Team battle trying conditions at Colombian EWS

2017’s EWS season has affectionately garnered the nickname Enduro Wet Series (less affectionately by those actually racing) and after the first bone-dry opening round last week some thought that, just maybe, we might be in for a dry season of racing. Who were they kidding?
