27.5-Inch Plus Wheel
Simplicity, reliability, capability. These elements are the bones and muscle that make up Kona’s Unit, with classic Kona fun at its heart. Using Reynolds chromoly tubing, a 44mm head tube, and sliding dropouts the frame delivers a lifetime of versatile, smile-driving service. With 27.5 x 2.8 tires, it offers a smooth ride, great soft-surface flotation, and tons of traction—just what your bikepacking dreams call for. Sticking with Kona's penchant for versatility, the Unit will happily take your favorite 29er wheels when you want to roll big and fast. Kona outfitted the Unit with a straight-up single-speed drivetrain and TRP mechanical disc brakes so your rig can be easily serviced in the middle of nowhere. Kona cockpit components are comfortable and ready for anything you care to endeavor, from local trail hot laps to multi-day bikepacking forays into parts unknown.
Kona’s Big Honzo takes the playful, slack geometry Honzo uses to light up singletrack, and ups the ante with bigger rubber and bigger fun. With 27.5 x 2.8 Nobby Nics wrapped around WTB’s Scraper rims, your footprint opens up like a sled-dog’s paw, aggressively clawing earth and floating over terrain with ease. Kona really wants you to use ALL that extra traction, so they hook you up with a stiff, nimble aluminum frame that squeezes speed out of descents and begs to be swooped through corners. A RockShox Recon fork plows through chunky trails with 120mm of go-fast travel, so you can rip through the gears of your 11-speed SRAM NX drivetrain. And, while we know you love to go fast, everyone eventually has to scrub some speed to nail a line. Take heart, Shimano’s got your back with a pair of burly hydraulic disc brakes that’ll slow you down in a hurry, especially with all that grip. Add the solid control offered by Kona’s durable cockpit parts with a work-and-play dropper post, and you’ve got a rig that’ll keep you grinning for hours on end.
The Big Honzo ST is the result of all of our favorite options coming together in a single bike. It’s steel, so it feels amazing. It has adjustable dropouts, so you can run a front derailleur or even as a single speed. It comes set up as 27.5+ but can run a 29" wheel. It’s got boost spacing for extra stiffness and control. It’s got an NX/SX Eagle drivetrain, so it climbs with ease. It’s the hardtail that gives you all of the options for customization but is also ready to rip right out of the box. - Kona Chromoly Butted frame - RockShox Revelation RC DebonAir 130mm fork - SRAM SX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain - SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes - WTB ST i35 TCS 27.5" rims w/Maxxis Minion/Rekon 2.8" tires - Trans-X Dropper seatpost
The go-to model for all-round riders, the Furtado proves that what goes up (well) can come down (equally well), too. The balance of 130mm VPP travel and a 66.5° head tube angle delivers a package that’s nimble on tight technical stuff yet perfectly poised on tricky descents, too. The upper-link-driven VPP design is engineered to be ultra-responsive. A firm initial stroke creates tight pedaling performance straight off the bat, while Juliana’s lighter shock tune remains supple enough to handle small bumps and keep things feeling playful. Deeper into the travel, the progressive shock rate delivers a subtle bottom-out resistance that makes it feel like there’s more travel than there actually is. The Furtado is suitable for almost all types of riders and trails. It has a unique personality that ranges from feisty dance partner on hot laps to trusty companion on more far-flung adventures. Some people want a garage full of bikes for every occasion. Others want just one that’s good for any occasion. The Furtado is that bike. - Aluminum frame - Fox Rhythm 34 27.5 fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - WTB ST i35 TCS 2.0 27.5 Rims with SRAM hubs - 27.5 x 2.6 Maxxis tires - 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - Race Face Aeffect dropper seatpost
Don't worry, S-Works doesn't get to have all of the fun—the new Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 27.5 features the same frame with a full 11m carbon chassis and rear-end as its older brother, but with a solid list of no-fuss components, including a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed groupset, for an everyman's budget. Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper was simple—build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness. Think of it this way: when the frame's telling your hands one thing and your feet another, your brain gets confused with the imbalance and the bike feels unstable. In order to fix this, we had to get to work on dialing-in the materials, shapes, and the layout. We started by creating our own mountain-specific stiffness test, and then we looked at the layout with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to see where we could get the biggest stiffness improvements. This led to a big discovery: The Large and X-Large frames needed more front-end stiffness while the Smalls and Mediums were just fine. We were able to create a frame design that was 20% more efficient. And in the end, this proved to be one of the lightest trail frames on the market today. When designing the frame with the stiffness targets being a main goal, we developed a radical new sidearm design. The front-end and rear-end are connected at three points, and the sidearm helps keep all these points super stiff and connected, all while taking about 100 grams out of the rear-end. More explicitly, this minimizes frame flex when the rear suspension is active. We continued down the suspension path with a custom Rx Trail Tune on both the fork and rear shock. Suspension performance is highly dependent on frame, wheel, and rider size, so we use our Rx Tune to get each bike to land in the middle of the adjustment spectrum, and this gives you the biggest possible range to fine-tune your ride. Another focal point of the tune was matching the suspension characteristics between wheel sizes—we developed a specific Rx Tune for each platform. So, no matter what wheel size you prefer, you'll get perfectly linear suspension. Steps were also taken to make this bike easy to live with. Threaded bottom brackets make a triumphant return, and we made room for up to a 3.0" tire. You're also free to run whatever aftermarket rear shock you want since we're using standard metric shocks. We revamped the SWAT box, too, making it sleeker, lighter, and with more volume. And customization is furthered with a Flip Chip that lets you to dial-in your Stumpy to your riding style. Switch it from High to Low and it drops your bottom bracket 6mm and slackens the head tube by half-a-degree. Little details also jump out to surprise you, like a newly designed ribbed chainstay protector that makes chain slap a thing of the past and nearly silences the drivetrain. Lastly, we seriously couldn't make cable routing any easier on carbon models. Full tubes can be found throughout the carbon frame, so all you have to do is push the cable and it'll come out the other end. No more lazy loop, hidden stashes of magnets, pokey spokes, or pillows to cry in. The build on this Comp model comes with a list of components that deliver undeniable quality, like a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, SRAM Guide R disc brakes, FOX front and rear suspension, and Roval Traverse 27.5 wheels. - The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical, FACT 11m carbon fiber construction is lightweight, stiff, and ready to take on the trail. It's built off our 27.5 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT integration in the down tube, a threaded BB, easy cable routing, and an all-new chain silencer, it's ready for anything the trail, or you, throw at it. - The FOX DPS Performance rear shock features our Rx Trail Tune, ensuring that no matter the wheel or frame size, your bike is dialed-in perfectly. - SRAM's 12-speed NX Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades.
