Kerry Werner may well have finished last season’s domestic CX season in the number one spot but I think it’s worth reminding that although he’s sponsored by Kona primarily as a CX racer, he shreds ALL THE BIKES. The fact that he’s finished the last two BC Bike Race’s in third should really be all the proof you need.
Earlier this year he took delivery of a nice new red team issue Process 153 CR DL and proceeded to build it up. We are used to seeing these team frames build up with SRAM and Rock Shox parts but the Kona Adventure team have a whole different set of sponsors and this build is like nothing you have seen before.
It all kicks off with the drive train and this understated, yet sleek XT crankset with 34t ring.
Out the back you’ll find a Shimano’s XT Di2 11spd rear derailleur.
The tiny display takes up no room on the bars…
… while the battery is tucked away inside the fork’s steerer.
You can’t beat the ergonomics of the XT Di2 shifter.
Front suspension is looked after by long-time adventure team sponsor MRP. Kerry opted for the Ribbon Air fork in 160mm. The Ribbon features MRP’s famed Ramp Control dial standard.
Carbon WTB hoops are shod with WTB’s fast-rolling and versatile Trail Boss 2.4.
Braking is taken care of with Shimano’s classic XT’s.
Ice Tech rotors and pads keep things cool.
Kerry had custom Lizard Skin lock-on collars made up for the Process. The left reads Live to Shred, the right says Shred to Live. Oh and how sick is that PNW Components dropper lever.
And that rad lever actuates this 175mm PNW Components Bachelor post.
