“The Kona Mahuna is a solid, playful hardtail for a great price”

Bicycling Magazine has already bestowed a little love on our 2020 Mahuna, including it in their   “The 14 Best Cheap Mountain Bikes”  story where it took away their Great First Race Bike award. This week though, Bicycling has shown it a bunch more love, posting up their positive full review of the Mahuna online.

On paper, the Kona Mahuna looks like what it is: A budget-friendly, progressive hardtail ready to roll some singletrack. But under our legs, it offered a surprisingly lively ride quality that we wouldn’t have anticipated by looking at it. In building the Mahuna, Kona made some really smart spec and design choices—aggressive tires and slack geometry, to name a couple—that come together to create a responsive, eager ride that feels lighter than its 31 pounds.
