Vital MTB Reviews the Kona Operator DL: “Park Friendly, World Cup Approved”

Vital MTB has just published a very thorough and positive review of our Operator DL.

“Whether you spend $3,200 on the baseline model or $7,500 on their highest end build, you still get a durable, well-thought-out machine with good geometry, a solid suspension platform, all in a mega-stout package that should take a beating for many seasons to come.”

“Kona’s updated Operator DL is a solid downhill bike with a build that strikes a nice balance between performance and budget.”

Dirt Mountain Bike’s 27.5 Kona Operator Long Term Review: “We totally love it…”

Dirt Mountain Bike has just posted their long term review of Operator. With notes on the history of our race-ready downhill machine, Ieuan Williams gets into just what our lineup of DH shredders is capable of.

“The RockShox Kage rear shock together with the suspension system is a real gem of a pairing – smooth, supple over harsh high frequency terrain but also has a progressive curve to help deal with big hits without blowing through the travel. We totally love it.”

“We rate this bike highly and the ride characteristic offers superb traction together with a silent ride.”
