Kona Satori DL - More uphill, more dowhill, more fun
Time and time again, the guys and girls at Kona have shown how to build bikes that put big smiles on the faces of experienced MTBers, whilst also giving newcomers powerful and reliable all-round riding machines.
Models such as their Process-Fully line or the aggressive Honzo have anticipated current mountain bike developments way before other manufacturers even recognised them. With the new Satori, Kona continues its tradition as a pioneer.
The Kona Satori is a potent yet extremely effective 29 Trail-Fully, with a long main frame, a deep bottom bracket and a crisp, short rear end. The combination of 29" wheels, 140 mm travel up front and 130 mm travel on the rear offers a real all-mountain feeling on rough trails. A comparatively moderate steering angle and a short rear end ensure explosive dynamics and agility on every ride. But the highlight of the Kona Satori, without a doubt, is the cleverly designed central positioning of the rider. With its super-steep seat angle, Kona ensures balanced weight distribution for the downs and extremely efficient power transmission when pedalling – so the Satori will also beat lighter XC bikes uphill. On the rear wheel of its sturdy aluminium frame, the Fuse Suspension Platform takes 130 mm of travel out of the RockShox Deluxe RL Debon Air shock and manages to miss a pivot point on the rear end. This saves weight, wear and introduces extra stiffness to the short rear. In the main triangle of the Satori frame you’ll find ample space for a large drinking bottle. Another noteworthy feature includes cleverly-positioned external cable guides that make maintenance work easier. Consistently high-quality equipment includes a dropper seatpost and tubeless tyres that optimally equip the new Satori for every conceivable trail adventure – from local mountain rides to the BC Bike Race.
The 2019 Satori DL is the high-quality version of Kona's new all-round trailmaster. Its powerful aluminium frame is accompanied up front by a RockShox Revelation RC Solo Air 140mm fork. It rolls to the starting line on fairly light yet super stable WTB STP i29 wheels with wide tubeless rims and robust Maxxis tyres. The 500% gear range of the Sram GX Eagle Group perfectly matches the climbing skills of the Satori. Satori riders can look forward to keeping their cool on even the steepest and longest ascents – and when the descent begins, the Reverb dropper seatpost releases your attack position at the push of a button. With your sights set on the track ahead and your weight centrally balanced in the bike, previously dreaded passages become a playground. Thanks to the superb braking power of the Sram Guide R and the superiority of the geometry, you’ll remain comfortably in control of every situation. A high-quality mix of WTB and Kona components round off this generous component package.
With the Kona Satori DL you’re ready for higher speeds and next level performance on the trails.
