Bike Magazine has released their 2018 Bible of Bike Tests, one of the most comprehensive mountain bike tests in the world, and has named the Kona Process 153 CR DL as a top choice. Gear Editor and tester Travis Engel makes it no secret that he’s a lover of 29ers in his normal routine, so his selection of the Process for his top pick makes it an awesome surprise.
Writer and tester Jonathan Weber had this to say about the tester’s overall impression of the Process CR DL: “Our testers were enamored with this bike. One’s first impression was of a very neutral, balanced-feeling all-mountain bike. Another remarked that it felt like a downhill bike, and really came alive when the trail turned steeply, chunkily downward. All three were impressed by its climbing characteristics. Another highlighted how fun the Process is, even on less-technical or slower sections of trail.“
