Fatbikes with their extremely wide low-pressure tyres already allow you to travel in regions where any other mountain bike would have reached its limits long ago. Snow, sand or oily riverbeds are easily navigated with the wide slippers and recommend the thick ones as an excellent choice for bikpacking expeditions in regions where mountain bikers have never been before.
Kona has gained a lot of experience with fat bikes and goes one step further with her new Wozo model. The Wozo wants to transfer the trail fun from aggressive Hardatils ala Kona Honzo to Fatbike. With a Fatbike geometry optimized for the 100 mm Manitou Mastodon suspension fork, adjustable dropouts, plenty of soldering on for luggage and a sovereignty on the trail that no longer shrinks from any technical passage, the experiment was a complete success. A Sram NX 1x11 drive, Shimano hydraulic brakes, Sun ring wheels with 3.8 inch Maxxis Minion FBF EXO TR DUAL tyres as well as WTB and Kona Parts will turn the Kona Wozo into a real trail bike for everyone who wants more.
Kona 7005 and 6061 aluminium alloys are widely used in mountain and asphalt bicycles. A rugged, durable light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061, offer fantastic, reliable performance that enables thousands of rides. Much of the 7005/6061 tube is butted and/or shaped, which means that the wall thickness of the tube can be both increased or decreased and shaped, allowing Kona to fine-tune the strength and ride characteristics of a particular frame depending on the intended application.
TAPERED HEAD TUBE
More circumference on the underside of the head tube distributes impact better, prolongs headset bearing life and eliminates brake shock while providing safe steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the driver more control on uneven terrain.
Bearing shells are pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces the stacking height so that the height of the stem and the bars can be better adjusted to give the rider the best possible fit.
