Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tyres and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tyres for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for mudguards, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tyres and commute on them during the week.
Born in the deep forests of Vancouver, British Columbia in 1988, Kona has since gone on to become one of the most influential bicycle manufacturers in the world, known for it’s innovations in mountain bike design, creative marketing and now, road and commuter offerings.
Named for the breezy trade winds that keep the Hawaiian Islands lush and tropical, throughout the company’s 28-year history, their designers have always believed that technology isn’t about creating new confusing acronyms and high-tech principles that may or may not help a bike to ride better. Quite often it’s the simplest innovations that enable the greatest improvements.
With offices in Vancouver, BC, Bellingham, Washington, and Geneva, Switzerland, and a staff that lives and breathes riding bikes, today Kona is perhaps best known for its blend of modern technology and creative thought. One of the most notable innovations of 2014, one that garnered them an incredible amount of attention, was the simple idea of rider fit, best viewed in the geometry and design of their incredibly successful line of Process enduro bikes.
A lot of the company’s most noteworthy technology comes in the form of its undying attention to detail. From steel to carbon fiber to titanium, refined aluminum alloys through to Scandium 69, Kona features perfected bicycle models ranging from Kids’ cyclocross bikes to World Cup downhill race machines, stylish inner city commuters to flat-out, perfectly priced road bikes. Still owned by its original founders, Kona is one of cycling’s great success stories.
