Kona: Bikes made by people who love bikes, for people who love bikes
Dan Gerhard and Jacob Heilbronn established Kona in 1988 in Vancouver, BC, where they began manufacturing mountain bikes. In 1989, they collaborated with mountain bike champion Joe Murray to produce a series of steel hardtails. In 1998, they designed and built a range of Freeride mountain bikes that were known for their durability as well as their capacity to handle technical downhill terrain. Their current headquarters are based in Ferndale, Washington, and the brand sells and distributes Kona bikes to over 60 countries worldwide. In addition to their extensive collection of mountain bikes, Kona makes road, commuter and cyclocross bikes using materials such as carbon fibre, titanium, aluminium, steel and the latest high-end addition, scandium. The Kona team has collectively won over 200 national and world championships. The team is comprised of two-time winner of the US National mountain bike champions Joe Murray, Greg Minaar, Steve Peat and Fabien Barel - winners of the World Downhill Championships, Anne Knapp and Ryan Trebon - winners of the US National Mountain Bike and Cyclocross Championships and Tracey Moseley - winner of the World Cup Downhill Championships. To this day, the Kona Factory team regularly competes in national and international events across the globe. The team also supports fundraising projects, such as the building of freeride features on trails across the US, dirt jumps in parks and raising awareness and funds for health care workers treating HIV and AIDS patients in cities across Africa. Kona also donates AfricaBikes to help deliver home health aides and other services.
