The Kona Unit is the fun-loving commuter who is not afraid to get dirty on weekends. With the confidence-giving handling of a Kona and large 29x2.6" tyres, the Unit feels at home virtually anywhere - from a short drive to the supermarket to a forest adventure.
The great advantage of an internal headset, where the bearing shells are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable, is the additional protective layer that protects the bearings from the elements. An internal headset also reduces the body height, making it easier to adjust the stem and handlebar height for the rider to make the best adjustment.
27.5 Plus wheels
The advantages of the 27.5-inch wheel are simple: they roll over obstacles better than 26-inch wheels, but are more agile and agile than 29-inch wheels. They combine the best of both worlds, increasing overall performance and driving satisfaction.
12 x 148 mm rear axle
12 x 142 mm, 12 x 148 mm and 12 x 157 mm rear axle standards offer two main advantages for Kona riders: the 12 mm diameter of the rear axle ensures maximum stability on the rear hub and frame, while the 142/148/157 mm outer diameter of the hub ensures that the wheel is fast and correctly positioned in the frame before the rear axle can be used. From 2016, the 12 x 148 mm standard will be available as a mix, especially on the new Honzo alloy. 12 x 148 offers more tyre clearance on the chain stay, while the rear wheel is more stable and durable compared to a 12 x 142 mm thru axle.
