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.”

We’ve just posted a PDF of the full review as a PDF here (or you can click the below image)

Dirt Rag is Loving the Honzo CR: “Kona knocked it out of the park…”

Dirt Rag‘s Scott Williams has begun testing on the Honzo CR Trail DL and it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting it back any time soon. From the component spec to the frame details to the ride characteristics, Scott is loving the Honzo CR.

“As a full-on ambassador of the hardtail world, the Honzo checks many of the must-have boxes for me. Simply put, a solid, dependable build that’s ready to shred straight from the box.”

Read Scott’s First Impressions review at Dirt Rag and keep an eye on newsstands for the full review in their next issue.
