New for 2012, Kona’s first 29er carbon fiber hardtail takes everything we’ve learned in seven years of designing and building trail-inspired, race-winning 29er mountain bikes. Using a proprietary carbon fiber weave that’s designed to be both tough and quick, the mastered geometry of the King Kahuna features short chainstays, a low bottom bracket, a stiff 142×12 rear axle, and a spec package that’s all race, all speed, all King.

Spec Highlights:
• RockShox Reba RL 29er Tapered w/ 15mm thru-axle
• Avid Elixir 5 brakes
• Easton XC 29er wheelset
• SRAM X9 10-speed drivetrain
