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 Sutra ULTD is the continuation of a dream to make a drop bar bike as badass as possible. The beloved steel chassis of the Sutra and Sutra LTD plays host to the next iteration of the lineup. The butted Cromoly frame and Project Two Cromoly disc fork hold WTB KOM Light Team i27 TCS 2.0 rims on Maxxis Recon Race EXO TR 29x2.25” tires. That’s right. 2.25” of earth-gripping rubber. When the descents get hairy, you can get low with a Trans-X +RAD dropper post. SRAM Rival 1 flat mount disc brakes and drivetrain keep things moving (and stopping) nicely. This bike is as beautiful as it is beastly, with a gorgeous Prism paint job. Turn heads while you turn over the miles on the brand-new Sutra Unlimited.
Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. Kona never strayed from cycling’s original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.
TUBELESS COMPATIBLE RIMS
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.
12x142 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.
