Kona's Dew models do the splits between a nimble everyday bike and moderate sportiness on all your journeys. Call it a cross bike, hybrid or fitness bike - with every Kona Dew, you're on the road in the neighborhood, the big city or on country roads, carefree and fast. Versatility, reliability and driving pleasure are the self-explanatory virtues of the nimble wheels.
Cleaned up, stylish and always ready, the Dr. Dew presents itself as a luxurious model of the Kona series. The offensive orange frame set conveys the right mixture of sporty agility and, driving comfort and easy handling. Mudguards and bell are already standard on the Dr. Dew. Nothing stands in the way of an optional luggage carrier month. The 1x12 Sram NX gear system with large cassette offers the same large transmission range as gear systems with several chainrings, but is much more intuitive in operation. Hydraulic disc brakes ensure weather-independent acceleration with minimal hand forces all year round. Where the road does not offer ideal conditions, the lightly rolling tyres provide a noticeable plus in comfort.
650b wheels and tyres have an overall diameter similar to a conventional 700c gravel or commuter tyre, but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, larger tyre. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and compound tyres allows them to be driven comfortably at lower pressures while rolling fast on a variety of surfaces at the same time. It's the best of both worlds.
Bearing shells are actually pushed 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 are better adjustable and the rider gets the best possible fit.
KONA 6061 ALUMINIUM
Kona 7005 and 6061 aluminium alloys are widely used in our fleet of 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 our 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 so that we can fine-tune the strength and ride characteristics of a particular frame depending on the intended application.
