Details

How do you improve on a bike that already feels pretty damn close to perfect? Steel seemed like a solid move. Helping to smooth out your ride and turn heads, the Rove DL (formerly called the Rove ST) features a stunning Kona Butted Cromoly frame and Project Two Cromoly Disc fork. A reliable SRAM Rival 1x11 drivetrain and TRP Spyre C brakes ensure the bike functions as nicely as it looks. The all-new Rove DL is running on WTB KOM Light Team i23 TCS rims wrapped in WTB Venture TCS 47mm tires, making it ready for anything!

Kona Cromoly
Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We've 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.

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 dimension of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.

650B Wheels
650B wheels and tires have a similar overall diameter to a traditional 700c gravel or commuting tire but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, taller tire. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and mixed-surface tires means they can be run comfortably at lower pressures while still rolling quickly on a variety of surfaces. It's the best of both worlds.
