Outside, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, selected Kona Bicycles to be featured in their Summer Buyer’s Guide as among the best gear to have for the summer sports season. The Kona MinUte was reviewed in the Utility Bikes category. The entire selection of products appears in Outside’s Summer Buyer’s Guide, which went on sale April 28.
This year, the OUTSIDE team of adventure sports experts hit the trails on foot and on wheels, and took to rivers and lakes around the country to put all the newest shoes, bikes, boats, fitness apparel, accessories and gadgets to the test. The Summer Buyer’s Guide offers readers everything they learned from field-testing hundreds of products, making it the top resource for everyone from seasoned adventurers to venturing out for the first time. Reviews are organized by sport and activity, and include the ideal setting or experience level for each product, as well as tips for getting the most out of each gear pick. Only the best items on the market are featured in the guide.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have the Kona MinUte in Outside Magazine Summer Gear Guide. If it gets more people loaded up their bike instead of their car, we couldn’t be more pleased.” -Mitchell Scott, Kona Communications Director
“The innovations in the field of adventure and outdoor gear never cease to amaze us,” says OUTSIDE Buyer’s Guide editor Sam Moulton. “Our team of gear experts had plenty of difficult choices to make in putting together the Summer Buyer’s Guide this year, but after testing everything from hiking packs and running shoes to wearable tech and commuter bikes, we hand-picked the very best 350 products, including the fourteen very top performers that received our coveted Gear of the Year award. Once again, the issue is packed with everything you need for summer fun and adventure.”
Designed for speedy people who like to do things via the engine inside, the MinUte comes loaded with functional features, like full fenders with long tails to keep your feet dry, a sturdy, integrated rear rack with two smartly designed water resistant panniers, a bell in the brake lever, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes for heavy loads. The MinUte is the perfect bike for those looking for a mid-tailed option to the long-tailed bikes currently on the market.
