Dirt Rag Reviews the Kona Hei Hei Trail DL: “This bike has all day epic adventure written all over it.”

Karl Rosengarth from Dirt Rag is normally in charge of Dirt Rag’s beer reviews, but for this special occasion was granted the task of reviewing a Hei Hei Trail for his friends at Kona. Here’s a taste of Karl’s experience with the bike:

“The Hei Hei Trail DL is a great all-arounder that pedals like a rockstar and has enough swag to bail you out when the going gets rough.”

“The Hei Hei Trail leaped over logs with the greatest of ease and snapped through tight singletrack with a dexterity that was totally instinctive.”

Dirt Rag’s Ode the Honzo CR Trail: “Long, Low and Slack. It Works.”

Dirt Rag‘s Scott Williams has finished testing the Honzo CR Trail DL and it seems he gets it “Long, low and slack. It works. “ From the component spec to the frame details to the ride characteristics, Scott absolutely loved the Honzo CR Trail.

“There have only been two bikes that I immediately felt at home on, my personal bike being one of them and now this Honzo CR Trail DL.”

Dirt Rag Magazine on the Hei Hei Trail “The Hei Hei Trail Proved Me Wrong”

“Bucking the slacker-lower-plusher trend, Kona produced a nimble, efficient and pedaly trail bike that’s versatile enough to handle the full spectrum of conditions”

Karl Rosengarth of Dirt Rag has just published his review of our Hei Hei Trail DL in their 199th issue. Karl’s review seems to echo what other press have said about this bike and that it is just one super fun, sprightly all round mountain bike that can handle the climbs with aplomb as well as the descents “This could be one of the best plain-old mountain bikes going.”

Spoiler Alert: Karl LOVED the Hei Hei Trail DL.

“From my very first ride, I felt in sync with the nimble handling that the short chainstays and not-too-slack head angle combined to produce.

“The geometry and cockpit felt totally dialed in, and I wouldn’t (and didn’t) change a thing.”

“The Hei Hei Trail DL is a great all-arounder that pedals like a rockstar and has enough swag to bail you out when the going gets rough.”
