The Dew is as classic to the Kona lineup as a fedora is to a Havana night. Comfort, simplicity, and efficiency are at the forefront of the Dew. Equipped with Tektro disc brakes, the Dew has exceptional stopping power, whether that’s while bombing down a hill, or perfecting your skids.
You know what you want in a city bike. A comfortable saddle atop a durable frame, strong Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, a 9-speed Shimano drivetrain, and quality Shimano cranks make the Dew Plus the choice for commuters that are looking for a dependable bike in an affordable package.
The Rove is Kona’s essential drop bar all-rounder. Comfortable fit and stable geometry, the ability to take racks and fenders, and a no-nonsense spec make the Rove a great choice for commuting, weekend adventuring, or the occasional ‘cross or gravel race. You get a sensible double drivetrain, mechanical disc brakes, and WTB alloy rims wrapped in versatile Schwalbe tires to ensure you get the most from every ride.
Whether it’s the afternoon jaunt to the grocery store or the long weekend at your favorite escape, the Splice is your ideal companion. With fast and cushy Schwalbe Hurricane tires, confidence-inspiring Shimano hydraulic brakes, and the comfort of a Suntour front suspension fork, the Splice DL is your go-anywhere, do-anything adventure bike.
How do you take a race-ready cross-country machine and make it into the bike you ride everyday? Kona shows us how with their Big Kahuna, a svelte, race-ready aluminum hardtail with plus-sized 27.5 x 2.8-inch Schwalbes to grab handfuls of traction and float over gnarly terrain. These meaty tires raise the fun factor along with the bike’s versatility, enhanced by a 100mm RockShox Recon RL fork that keeps the front end tracking and your excitement high. That all-important rubber is well-supported by a pair of 40mm-wide WTB Scraper rims which are light enough to make their formidable strength seem impossible. All this rolling stock gets moving thanks to drivetrain components from Shimano and RaceFace, married in a 2x10-speed system with go-anywhere range. And, Shimano’s hydraulic disc brakes give you braking abilities that’ll make you contemplate equipping the bike with a seatbelt. Defy traditional bike boundaries and see what you can do on a Big Kahuna.
The Libre is the result of years of dreaming up the ultimate carbon dream machine. It’s part road bike, part mountain bike, part gravel grinder, and entirely badass. A Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain ensures maximum gear range, while WTB 650b tubeless ready wheels provide ample clearance for your favorite tires. Our new Kona Verso Carbon Touring fork is one of the only carbon forks on the market that allows for multiple rack and fender mounting options.
The Super Jake takes our renowned Cyclocross platform to an elite level and is the weapon of choice for world-class pro CX racer Kerry Werner. Fully equipped to race in World Cup level events or to endure all day epics on gravel, the Super Jake comes stocked with a killer setup including SRAM Force 1 components, and lightweight Easton EA70AX tubeless ready wheels.

Carbon fiber has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, we place our efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibers are in the right places. Our designers work very closely with our manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability and – finally – weight stipulations that we expect from our bikes. INTEGRATED HEADSET Integrated headsets are simple, light and effective headset systems whereby the bearing race cups are actually part of the head tube, and they are either machined away and left with the head tube, bonded (carbon), or welded in with steel or alloy. Like an internal headset, an integrated headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. TAPERED HEAD TUBE 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 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. 12x142mm AXLE 12x142mm, 12x148 and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. For 2017, you’ll see the 12x148 Boost standard in the mix. Boost spacing provides more tire clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12x142 thru-axle.
