Kona Ambassador Elliot Smith has been on the Process X for a few months now, and after spending the last three years on a 29″ wheeled Process 153 he’s been loving its new slightly more aggressive sibling. His bike began life as a stock Process X CR DL, but has seen a number of parts swapped out, many from Squamish BC brand OneUp Components. Time for closer look.
The drivetrain has remained but it has had OneUp’s bash guide added as well as a set of purple OneUp alloy pedals.
Elliot’s running his Process X in the short setting and like up the front he’s left the solid drivetrain untouched.
There’s absolutely no need to change the RockShox Zeb Ultimate fork, although Elliot has been running a ShockWiz for the last little while to really dial its performance in. Goodyear Newton EN Ultimate rubber ensures that he hooks up in all conditions.
SRAM’s Super Deluxe coil shock replaces the stock Super Deluxe Ultimate air shock.
The braking is taken care of with the stock Code RSC’s. The lock-on grips are from OneUp.
The bar is from OneUp and is there 35mm rise offering.
OneUp’s 210mm dropper provides a massive amount of drop and it’s cable actuation is super reliable, a Fabric Magic saddle finishes the cockpit off.
A purple Chris King headset forms the basis of the cockpit. OneUp’s EDC stem houses a full EDC tool, including tire plugs, chain breaker and quick links.
Chris King ISO Hubs are laced to Stans Flow EX3 rims.
The bottle cage is the Morse Cage from WolthTooth/King Cage and features more than normal fore/aft movement, OneUp’s smaller volume EDC pump also houses a Co2 canister under the end cap.
A DYEDBro frame protection kit covers the frame and protects it from rouge stones and falling garage tools..
