When you are used to being around the finer things in life, then only the best will do. That was very much the case for Jorge, Hotel Director of the luxurious Pig Hotel in the New Forest and his Sutra LTD.

Having been a long time Kona fan and also in the market for a seriously comfortable steel gravel bike with bike packing capabilities, it was always going to be a match made in Heaven. The all new sparkly paint job combined with the ultra-comfy riding position of this year’s Sutra LTD was enough to convince him that the Sutra LTD was the one.

Jorge quickly set about making the bike his own, adding his favorite Panaracer Gravelking tires, matching Brookes Cambium Saddle, Chris King headset, and an Absolute Black oval chainring. He then added a few upgrades to make his LTD a little more prepared for those bike packing trips. On top of installing a wider range of gearing for when the bike is fully loaded, he’s added a Carradice bag set (only the front was attached at the time we shot the photos) and an Exposure Revo Dynamo front Light & Hub, this thing will even charge his phone!
