“A bike that can carve up your local singletrack and is perfectly equipped for multi-day, mixed-terrain bikepacking”
We’ve been waiting with bated breath for Logan at BikePacking.com‘s long term Sutra ULTD review. We sent him our very first review bike six months ago, and today his long term review finally went live. Being that our Sutra LTD is Logan’s daily driver, it would’ve be hard to find anyone more qualified to review the Sutra ULTD and his in-depth review digs into the finest details on the bike and is essential reading if you are considering the ULTD as either a quiver killer or your next n+1.
“So, who is the Kona Sutra ULTD for? For anyone unfamiliar with the rather snarky and privileged “n+1” theorem, it was invented to calculate how many bikes you need. Variable n is the number of bikes you currently own. The Sutra LTD can certainly fit into the equation here. If you’re a stickler for having performance-optimized bikes for different disciplines, it’s not going to replace your gravel bike and your hardtail. In that instance, it’s a worthy quiver addition for those looking for something a little different. A bike that can carve up your local singletrack and is perfectly equipped for multi-day, mixed-terrain bikepacking—very similar to the Sutra LTD, but leaning more toward mountain bikers. On the flip side, if you’re a drop-bar aficionado, this very well could be a bike that replaces those two and becomes your gravel bike, rigid mountain bike, and bikepacking rig, all rolled into one.”
