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 Process Bike-Line has caused enthusiasm among testers of the trade press, bike professionals and hobby pilots alike. At a time when trail and enduro bikes are increasingly made of carbon, Kona's aluminium process convinces with its inner values. The very stiff frames with a comparatively simple rear end and the strongly sloping top tube do not only claim to have a modern and aggressive geometry. They anticipated the development. With very long top tube and wheelbase, really short rear and flat steering angle, they feature impressive handling in all suspension travel variants and seem to blossom out the more the trail gets down to business.
The Kona Process 153 stands on wide 29 inch wheels, has a moderate 153 mm travel at the rear and a 160 mm Rock Shox Lyrik RC at the front. But you shouldn't be deceived by the suspension travel of a typical All Mountain Fullys in this country with the Process 153. The progressive bike shows the character of an enduro race bike, rewards aggressive and powerful riding with razor-sharp handling and only seems to get faster and faster. On the way to the next trail entry, the seating position and rear triangle prove to be quite efficient.
Like all Process models, the Process 153 is limited to the gorge-less operation, relies on the 1x12 Sram GX Eagle drive, but already gets the wide graded 10-50 cassette. The Sram Guide R disc stoppers will slow you down again when you and the Process go through the motions. For Kona, an adjustable saddle support is standard equipment on such a potent bike. Maxxis tires, WTB and Kona parts complete the bike according to its status.
In order to continuously improve the growing fleet of Kona Carbon bicycles, the Kona design team works closely with the manufacturers. To ensure the desired riding characteristics, the stability and weight requirements are met at the highest level. Kona Carbon bikes are lightweight, super fast, extremely durable and wildly fun.
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.
