Bicycling Magazine awarded the Process CR/DL an Editors Choice award a month or so ago, the accompanying post on their website was short and sweet. Now though Bobby Lea’s full length is up on Bicycling magazine website and it’s he makes some pretty cool observations about the bike. Mainly that it’s fun. “Full participation yields the best riding experience; it’s more maneuverable than a long-travel trail bike should be; its sportive nature beckons you to explore your inner hooligan over the trail’s less-ridden lines.”

And just how well the bike climbed. “The Kona Process 153 CR/DL 29 feels intuitive from the first ride, even before you dial the suspension to your preferences. The first thing that strikes you is how well it pedals: Before I could point the bike downhill, I had to climb that hill, and I learned that the Process transfers power more directly than an enduro bike should.”
