When thinking about the mountain bike, our lineup of hardtails tells the story of more than three decades of innovation, durability, and good old-fashioned fun. While many of these names have been in the Kona lineup for decades, they’ve evolved with the times to be more efficient, better designed, and leaders in the hard tail category. We know people look to our hard tails as everything from gateway mountain bikes, to daily shred machines, and are proud to offer a bike for a wide variety of customers.
We all remember our first mountain bike. For many of us, it was a bike like the Lana’i. Affordable enough not to feel too risky but stocked with components that give you the freedom to explore off-road. The Lana’i features integrated shifters and brake levers to streamline the cockpit and is now available in three wheel sizes: 26″ for size XS, 27.5″ for S and M, and 29″ for L and XL. With an 8-speed drivetrain, grippy disc brakes, and a 100mm travel fork, the Lana’i is the perfect way to taste what real singletrack riding has to offer.
The Lava Dome is kind of like your best friend, but in bike form. It’s awesome in the dirt. It’s awesome to rally around town. It’s awesome poking around neighborhood singletrack, and it does it all in a dependable way. The Lava Dome features an easy-to-use 9-speed drivetrain with a clutch rear derailleur as well as sleek internal cable routing and dropouts. With strong 29” wheels that can accept up to a 2.6” tires, this bike is ready for everything in its path!
This Kona classic brings some of the finer things to light. The Fire Mountain is running a smooth-shifting 9-speed drivetrain to keep things manageable across varying terrain and hydraulic disc brakes to stop on a dime. With 100mm of adjustable suspension and sturdy tires aboard wider 27mm rims, the Fire Mountain helps build confidence off-road. Available for smaller riders in a 26” wheeled XS version and a 27.5” wheel for sizes S-XL.
