Ti Tuesday: Kona Introduces its complete Titanium upgrade package (in 1993)

Joe Murray designed and raced the first titanium mountain bike in 1986. It was a natural step to create his own titanium frame and components. We firmly believe titanium is the best material for bicycle frames and components. It’s the ideal combination of strength, comfort and lightweight. Here are three great component options for your Kona Custom bike.

An amazing feat of engineering. Solid 6-4 titanium alloy is machined to make an incredibly strong and resilient steerer column and dropouts. Welded to straight 3-2.5 titanium alloy blades, this fork has excellent torsional rigidity, incredible strength and comfort. It weighs 625 grams, about 1.5 pounds lighter than a suspension fork. We think it’s the ideal all round cross-country fork.
