Product Description

Please note: all of our bike models come with an EU standard brake setup. This will need to be reversed to comply with UK cycling standards.

The Kona Operator has always been a top-class downhill bike. In all bike parks of the world you will meet loyal fans of the Kona Downhillbike. After a longer test phase, the operator has now been consistently set to 29 inch wheels and the geometry adapted accordingly. With a very short tail for a 29" downhill bike and extremely robust bearings, the Operator DL still proves to be a playful rocket in the bike park and feels at home on the steep and technical trails of the Pacific-Northwest region. Integrated frame protectors to dampen impacts of the double bridge fork, chain impacts and stones thrown against the down tube guarantee that the operator's frame can withstand even hard downhill seasons without a hitch.

The 29" aluminum version of the Kona Operator with RockShox Super Deluxe Coil RC damper and RockShox Boxxer WC fork relies on 190mm butter soft steel spring lift and is equipped with SRAM Code R brake system, SRAM GX 7x drive, FSA and Kona parts for the toughest tracks of your next bike park road trip.

12 x 157 mm rear wheel axle
12 x 142 mm, 12 x 148 and 12 x 157 rear axle standards offer two main advantages for Kona riders: the 12 mm diameter of the rear axle ensures maximum stability on the rear hub and frame, while the 142/148/157 mm outer diameter of the hub ensures that the wheel is fast and correctly positioned in the frame before the rear axle can be used. From 2016, the 12 x 148 standard will be available as a mix, especially on the new Operator series. 12 x 148 offers more tyre clearance on the chainstay, while the rear wheel is more stable and durable than a 12 x 142 thru axle.

The great advantage of an internal headset, where the bearing shells are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable, is the additional protective layer that protects the bearings from the elements. An internal headset also reduces the body height, making it easier to adjust the stem and handlebar height for the rider to make the best adjustment.
