The original cross country race machine, the Hei Hei was built to go fast – both up and down mountains. The Hei Hei design was focused on racing but we’ve always been of the mind that racing should be fun; 100mm of fuse independent suspension rear travel paired with 120mm of squish up front create a balanced, fun and efficient ride. Fast rolling and bump-swallowing 29″ wheels ensure fun is also at the top of the priority list.
The Honzo reimagined what a hardtail could be. We’ve taken our favorite parts of the Honzo and tweaked them to add a plusher feel. The Big Honzo comes with 27.5+ wheels and tires and 130mm of front suspension, though it is possible to run it as a 29er, giving you more options for customization. Available in carbon, steel, and aluminum and with a broad range of available spec, the reinvented Big Honzo is ready for adventure!
There’s something special about the pull to go deeper into lesser traveled terrain. Kona’s line of fat bikes is the answer to the age-old question, “how far should we go?” Ultra-wide tires provide traction in historically unrideable conditions. Sand, snow, and deep silty dirt are no longer reasons to avoid riding. Instead, they’re reasons to fill up your pack with adventure supplies and dive into the unknown!
