The Return of The Carbon Hei Heis!

You may have heard musings of an updated carbon Hei Hei. Perhaps you’ve seen photos of this rumored bike floating around the internet. You may have even caught of a glimpse of it in the wild at a pre-quarantine tradeshow. The wait is officially over! We are stoked to introduce the all-new Hei Hei CR DL and Hei Hei CR!



“It’s like a rocket ship!” This sentiment can be heard echoing through forests as the Hei Hei CR DL races through time and space. The all new Hei Hei CR DL Race Light frame is the epitome of fast and light. The frame is outfitted with a RockShox Pike Ultimate fork and RockShox Deluxe Ultimate shock both with 120mm of travel, a Reverb dropper, and SRAM Descendant DUB carbon cranks, making this ultimate world record-smashing machine.


The Hei Hei CR has everything you need to win the race and win the fun. We’ve completely redesigned our Race Light Carbon frame to be the fastest in the world. The all-new Hei Hei CR features completely redesigned longer and slacker frame geometry and features 120mm of front and rear travel with a Fox 34 Stepcast fork and Fox EVOL LV rear shock. A Fox Transfer dropper post will have you ready for undulating terrain and a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain provides excellent gearing and shifting.

HEI HEI CR RACE (Frame only)

The Hei Hei CR Race frame is the yin to your parts yang. The frame is constructed of Kona Race Light carbon, ensuring a lightweight platform that will endure punishing terrain at high speeds. This year we’ve completely redesigned the geometry of the Hei Hei CR Race to meet the demands of ever-changing cross-country tracks. A horizontal fitting RockShox Deluxe Ultimate rear shock gives room for two water bottles. Our Fuse Independent Suspension system provides excellent small bump compliance and ultimate pedaling efficiency. We’ve also included the seat clamp, rear axle, and frame protection, to ensure you have everything you need to create your dream build.
The carbon Hei Heis are available now from your local dealer or the Kona Ride Online. Stay tuned for the full-length Bicycle Therapy video dropping on a screen near you next week!
