The New Kona Dr Dew: the Raddest Dew Yet?

With new Kona models arriving in your local bike shop over the next couple of weeks, we’re doing a series of posts here on the Cog to introduce the new bikes. Keep an eye here all week for rad new bikes and updates to current models. Next up: the super stylish Dr Dew.

The Raddest Dew Yet

This could be the raddest Dr Dew yet, and that’s saying a lot considering the popularity of our flagship Dew model. The SRAM NX 11-speed single ring drivetrain keeps things simple and smooth, while hydraulic brakes and full fenders ensure all-year confidence. This year the Dr Dew gets sweet tanwall WTB Horizon 650x47c tires and a color-matched parts kit that looks oh-so-sweet.

Dr Dew

Designed to turn heads, the Dr Dew is built to last like only a Kona can. Our flagship urban bike features an 11-speed SRAM drivetrain, fast and cushy 650b wheels and tires, sensible fenders, and a bell right out of the box. It’s ready to take on whatever you can throw at it.











Keep an eye here on the Cog and on Konaworld.com for new models arriving at Kona dealers every day!

La nuova Kona Dr Dew: la più fica di tutte le Dew?

La più fica di tutte le Dew

Questa potrebbe davvero essere la più fica di tutte le Dr Dew, e non è poco considerando la popolarità della portabandiera della serie Dew. Il gruppo cambio SRAM NX 11 monocorona la rende semplice e raffinata, mentre i freni a disco idraulici ed i parafanghi in dotazione ne fanno una bici perfetta per tutte le stagioni. Quest’anno la Dr Dew monta dei bellissimi copertoni WTB Horizon 650x47c bicolore che si abbinano elegantemente alle rifiniture del telaio.

Dr Dew

Disegnata per far voltare le persone, la Dr Dew è costruita per durare nel tempo come solo Kona sa fare. La nostra ammiraglia tra le urban bike è equipaggiata con un cambio ad 11 velocità SRAM, comodissimi ruote e pneumatici 650b, parafanghi su misura, ed un campanello. E’ pronta ad accettare qualsiasi fardello vorrai caricarci.











Exploring Spanish Back Alleys with the Kona Big Rove and Dr Dew

Just last week we released Chasing Sunshine, a video and photo feature showcasing our PhD and Esatto Fast models being ridden in Malaga, Spain. Following up on that, we’ve got a double hit for you featuring two city bikes with different attitudes.

The Dr Dew and Big Rove are both fun-loving and dependable urban bikes, available worldwide and built ready for anything your city can throw at them. Disc brakes, fast and comfortable tires, and the comfort of an upright position ensure both of these bikes are ready to hit (and sometimes avoid) the cobbles, pavement, potholes, grass, dirt, gravel, tarmac, boardwalks and marble.

The Dr Dew, with its single ring drivetrain, can’t help but catch your eye. The simple wide range of gears is perfect for flat cruises but also makes quick work of fast hill sprints. The sensible fenders, hydraulic disc brakes and plush Clement 40c tires showcase our attention to urban environments. The Dr Dew is designed to turn heads – it’s up to you to turn the wheels.

If no one has coined the phrase “urban assault vehicle,” we’ll apply it to the Big Rove. Perfect for local bike paths and roughed-up back alleys, the big-tired Rove can handle them all with aplomb. And the lightweight aluminum frame is nimble, durable and built to handle a lifetime of urban abuse.

My Kona – Dew

At Kona, we’re all passionate about the bike. Whether it’s bombing around the trails of Bellingham, lighting up the CX scene in Seattle, or spinning out a commute in Europe. We’re fortunate to have a gold mine of a rad people within the company that are as diverse as our family of bikes. They’re fathers, mothers, advocates, promoters, band members, sportsmen, sports fans and metal heads. They’re all an integral part of Kona and the Kona experience.
We want to celebrate the individuals, and at the same time give a look behind the scenes at Kona. These are our employees, their bikes, and their lives.

If the character of this episode already looks familiar to you, it’s probably because he has been a member of the Kona family since 1990 and is the star of our video series The Dew Files. For this chapter of the My Kona series we travel to the Southern Interior of British Columbia to the sleepy town of Penticton to learn more about one of the biggest personalities at Kona, Dew.
