Party with the Kona Supremes!

The Kona Supremes are a new riding and racing team based out of the Kona Bike Shop in Bellingham, WA. The Supremes were born from a local group of female Kona riders that shared a common vision: shred fast, play hard, and get more women into cycling. Each rider hails from a multi-sport background but has planted roots here in the PNW, where the loam is perfect and the two-wheeled adventures keep rolling as easily as the beer flows.

The goal of the Supremes is to always offer an inclusive adventure on our local trails, chock-full of support and inspiration. These ambassadors are students, environmentalists, industry professionals, artists, and all around outdoor enthusiasts.

This spring in Bellingham look out for rides and clinics hosted by the Supremes along with fundraisers and trail days with Bellingham’s local trail association, The Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition. The Supremes will also be racing the local enduro series and the Cascade Dirt Cup.

My Kona – Angi Weston

Angi Weston is all about bikes: she’s a sales rep out of our Bellingham office and spends her weekends as a professional mountain bike coach focusing on women’s skills clinics. She’s a shredder, but more than that, an enabler of others to push their own riding and to become more comfortable riding technical terrain.

As a growth-minded teacher and mentor, Angi sees the challenges we face with mountain biking as positive practice for challenging situations elsewhere in life:

“The world needs more people, especially women and girls, who have more faith in their abilities on a bike, and in life.” – Angi Weston

Ah yes, Angi truly is a rider, finding those parallels so she can continue to think about bikes just a little bit longer.

Freehub Magazine Review the 2016 Process 153DL “The Kona Process 153 DL is an absurdly fun bike”

The Freehub magazine guys ride the same trails as us here in Bellingham, so it only seemed fitting that we get them on a bike designed with those same trails in mind. Their review of the 2016 Process 153 DL is online now and it appears they loved the bike, I mean really LOVED it, if you don’t want to take one for a spin after reading it, well i’m guessing you work for one of our competitors. You can check out the review here (or by clicking on any of the images below).
