Dirt Magazine Raves About the Kona Process 111 in the 2017 Dirt 100

“Take a test ride and you’ll taste the magic.” That’s what Dirt Magazine has to say about the Process 111 as featured in their annual roundup of the best products in mountain biking.

In the video below you can watch Leuan Williams absolutely shredding the Process 111 on home turf. Leuan joined us at our Retallack launch last year and went home with his very own Kona Humu frame after being nominated for the MVP award there.

“This is a bike that featured in the 2014 Dirt 100 (the year that 29ers really started taking hold for us) and had a winning formula from day one. Now Kona have slackened the head angle to 67.5 degrees and added length to the (already long) top tube, creating a more up-to-date layout than before.”

Check out the video, and read the full review with glam shots over on the 2017 Dirt 100.

20 Years / 20 Questions with Kona Co-Owner Jake Heilbron

“We were literally throw-hucking our hardtail and fully rigid bikes down the mountain and chasing down after them.” – Jake Heilbron, Kona Co-Owner

Dirt Magazine is celebrating its 20-year anniversary with a limited edition coffee table book, and as part of the book launch they reached out to various industry personalities for a series of web features.

Kona co-owner Jake Heilbron dug into the company’s history and pulled out some real gems. From memories of years past, including some of the more questionable ones, to industry trends and what the future holds, the 20 Years / 20 Questions series is a great complement to Dirt’s anniversary celebration.
