What makes hardtail mountain bikes so much fun? Is it the snappy aluminium frame and the suspension fork that tame the toughest of trails? Maybe it’s the wide gear ranges and the fast rolling 27.5-inch wheels that make molehills out of mountains. Whatever the combination is, we know you’ll have a Blast. Key Features:Kona Race Light 6061 Aluminium – Kona Race Light 7005 and 6061 are lighter, more performance-oriented fabrications of our 7005/6061 tubing. Designed to meet Kona’s discerning race specifications, Race Light 7005/6061 are custom butted to create thicker tubes at weld areas and important parts of the frame, providing incredible strength and torsional integrity to the feel of the ride. We remove wall thickness in other parts of the frameset to lighten up the bike, giving the perfect balance between quickness and stiffness..Internal Headset – Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible..Tapered Head Type – More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed..27.5″ Wheels – The benefits of the 27.5-inch wheel are simple: they roll over obstacles and track better than 26-inch wheels, but are more manoeuvrable and nimble than 29-inch ones. .
