Some eagle eyed Kona and EWS fans may have been lucky enough to get a bit of an advanced look at one of our 2020 Process frame colours this year. Kona Gravity Team rider Shelly Flood has been rolling on this seriously rad Process 153 CR DL 27.5 for a wee while now and turning heads in the process. “Lil Acid” is built with a mixture of Kona Gravity Team kit as well as a few parts from her personal sponsors, we are sure you’ll agree that the resulting build is something pretty damn awesome.

SRAM carbon XO cranks and a 34t chainring propel “Lil Acid” while a OneUp upper guide ads a little extra security.

Out back you’ll find a matching SRAM XO rear derailleur and an XO Eagle cassette.

Rock Shox Lyrik Ultimates handle suspension duties up front.

Deity is a saddle sponsor for the rest of the Kona Enduro Team, but Shelly also runs their bar and stem too. The bar is the 25mm rise Skywire and the stem is the Copperhead.

All of the Kona Gravity Team sport OneUp’s EDC tools on their enduro and trail bikes. Oh yeah and that is a Chris King stem.

Are there any other brakes? SRAM’s Code RSC’s provide all the stopping you could ever require. From the burly lever…

…down to the solid AF callipers, SRAMs new Codes tick all the boxes!

And what Dream Build would be complete without some Chris King hubs.

Seat collars are small things, but Deity make them rad.

Coming from Aussie, Shelly’s build takes full advantage of the ability to route both brake and dropper cables around the drive side of the head tube.
