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 in 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 alloy Honzo. 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.
KONA 6061 ALUMINIUM
Kona 7005 and 6061 aluminium alloys are widely used in the mountain and asphalt bike fleet. 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 so that the strength and ride characteristics of a particular frame can be fine-tuned depending on the intended application.
TAPERED HEAD TUBE
More circumference on the underside of the head tube distributes the shock better, prolongs the headset's 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.
27.5 "+ WHEELS
The advantages of the 27.5-inch wheel are simple: they roll over obstacles better than 26-inch wheels, but are more maneuverable than 29-inch wheels.
