Kona Super Grassroots rider Caleb Holonko has the opening segment in We Are One Composites’ new team video, riding his Operator on some of his hand-built trails. With six riders and filmer Max Berkowitz let loose to be creative, this is a good one!
Here at Kona we’re pleased to announce that we’re continuing to work with Caleb Holonko as part of our Super Grassroots roster for 2017. The North Vancouver, BC-based freeride and dirt jump rider had a great year aboard our Process 167 and Shonky frames in 2016, and he’s looking to build upon that with the addition of a 27.5 Operator and a Process 153 DL this year.

From the Whip-Off World Championships at Crankworx Whistler to photo and video projects shot at his hand-built freeride lines deep in the coastal forests, Holonko is looking strong going into 2017 and we’re stoked to have him on the Kona team.

Kona Super Grassroots rider Caleb Holonko has been ripping it up on his Shonky AL and Process 167 this year. You may have seen some of his recent exploits at the Whip-Off World Championships on our Instagram, and he’s recently been featured on Pinkbike as part of their Getting to Know series. Scroll down for some photos and head over to Pinkbike to get to know Caleb.
The “Official” Whip Off World Champs went down yesterday as part of Crankworx on the infamous Crabapple Hits jumps. It’s a four hit run that culminates with a 65ft long (20 meters) table top. The kickers had received a make over before Crankworx with larger lips providing more boost than ever before. On top of the invited list of pro riders, 90 other hopefuls had shown up earlier in the week to try and qualify, that 90 was whittled down to around 15 riders who then got to join the pros in an hour long open jam session. The fifteen included Caleb Holonko and Stephane Pelletier, both Kona Super Grassroots riders (and both riding Process 167’s) as well as Kiwi shredder Nick Dethridge on his Supreme Operator. The trio mixed it up with the seasoned Whip Off veterans and threw down some of the raddest’s whips of the day.
Caleb Holonko has been killing it all summer long, bagging new tricks and combos left, right and centre. In the latest episode of No Bad Days he drops some heat in the final minutes with this perfect flat drop flip!
