The 2021 Kona gravity team is poised to take on the world’s most challenging tracks in both the Enduro World Series and select UCI World Cup Downhill events.

While not the season Connor Fearon wanted, South Australia’s aggressive stance on Covid transmission in 2020 meant that a full season of domestic racing was on offer. Some fast local competition kept Connor on his toes and helped him dial in his Process X for what hopefully shapes up to be a full EWS race season in 2021.

Celebrating his 11th year with Kona is Connor Fearon, who, along with Miranda Miller, headlines the gravity program. The pair will take on the full 2021 Enduro World Series. The gravity program will also feature new faces in Spain’s Carlos Langelaan and Austria’s Noah Hofmann who will both be racing a limited EWS schedule. Caleb Holonko returns as a force on the freeride side of the spectrum. With big projects in the works and a bottomless pool of talent, Holonko will be one to watch in 2021. The full Process line of bikes is the weapon of choice for the team as they tackle their local trails and the ever-challenging EWS circuit.

Thanks to the Crankworx Summer Series in BC and a shortened EWS in Europe,  Miranda Miller was able to get in a somewhat solid season of racing in 2020. Like Connor, Miranda is aching for some kind of normalcy to return to international racing for 2021.

For our resident freerider Caleb Holonko, Covid provided a ton of time to build and dig in 2020. The North Vancouver native used the year to line up and finish a whole bunch of build projects, and plans to capture them on film are already shaping up.

The Kona Gravity Team sees two knew faces join for 2021, first up is Spain’s Carlos Langelaan. Carlos personifies the modern professional gravity-based rider. He can just as easily demolish a set of pro-level dirt jumps as he can crush an EWS course or World Cup DH track. In 2021 Carlos aims to tackle more EWS events and lay down a couple of heavy hitting video parts.

Austrian Noah Hofmann is the second of the Gravity Team additions for 2021. Noah’s 2020 season was definitely something to write home about. He not only won the Junior Austrian National Downhill Championships but he took home the national title in Enduro too. The 18 year-old is now looking to transform those titles into results in the UCI DH World Cup and select EWS events.

The glue that holds the Gravity Team together is Mathieu Dupelle. The French Canadian team manager and mechanic is back for his 11th season with Kona. He’s excited to return to international racing and to help the team stand atop podiums.

We’re incredibly excited for the 2021 season to get underway and watch the Kona Gravity Team crush it all over the world. Whether it be the EWS, World Cup DH or Crankworx, you can be sure to see Kona’s talented team giving it 100%.
