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 all-new Process X is coming in hot! This gravity-hungry machine features 170 mm of front and 161 mm of rear travel. With its full carbon frame, an adjustable wheelbase, and the ability to run a 29” or 27.5” rear wheel, the Process X can be customized to the perfect fit. A Shimano XT drivetrain keeps the shifting smooth while ultra-powerful four piston Shimano Deore brakes with 203 mm rotors keep the speed in check. When you’re ready to rip, a Fox 38 Performance fork and Performance Elite DPX2 rear shock provide plush suspension. Chunky trails are no match for the front Maxxis Assegai EXO+ TR 3C and rear Minion DHR II EXO+ TR 3C tires.

Designed to be lightweight and built to demanding standards. Carbon fiber has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, Kona places their efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibers are in the right places. Konas designers work very closely with their manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability and – finally – weight stipulations that Konas expects from their bikes.

Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.

More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.

Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.

12x148 mm AXLE
12x142 mm, 12x148 and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12 mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157 mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.

Built to be off-the-top progressive, Beamer Independent Suspension helps the bike to stay higher in the travel and recover from hits more quickly. The Operators are instilled with what Konas product managers like to call “pure shock movement,” whereby the shock is protected from side load. Designed to be highly tuneable and extremely durable, the Beamer IS is our version of greased lightning.
