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 27.5 inch wheels and the geometry adapted accordingly. With a very short tail for a 27.5" downhill bike and extremely robust bearings, the operator 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 27.5" aluminum version of the Kona Operator with RockShox Super Deluxe Coil R Trunnion damper and RockShox Boxxer RC fork relies on 200mm butter soft steel spring lift and is equipped with SRAM Guide T brake system, SRAM X9 drive, Raceface, 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.

Tapered Head Tube
More circumference on the underside of the head tube distributes impact better, prolongs headset bearing life and eliminates brake shock while providing safe steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the driver more control on uneven terrain.

It is a very nice mountain bike bike. very good suspension, and can endure everything. definitely recommended, gr michael p.

Het is een hele fijne mountain-bike fiets. hele goeie vering, en kan alles doorstaan. zeker een aanrader, gr michael p.

The assessment comes from the last year model (which shares the same name) which features nearly identical specifications.
