SPLICE DL
A new model for 2013, the Splice DL takes the trail savvy of our mountain-bike heritage, the downtown efficiency of our commuter series and crosses them in a bike that can jump between trail and pavement lickety-split. We’ve shortened the chainstays from last year’s Splice, making the bike snappier and more responsive. With a 9-speed Shimano drivetrain, smooth weld frame, 63mm fork, narrowish 42c tires and hydraulic disc brakes, the Splice DL is perfect for the person who enjoys going places dirty, hard or otherwise.

KONA 7005/6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, affordable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, allowing us to fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

COMPACT REAR TRIANGLE

Short chainstays and seatstays provide a perfect balance of stability and power transfer when out of the saddle and pedaling hard. Shorter seatstays also have less deflection during braking and accelerate faster than longer stays. A more compact rear triangle also helps the bike to negotiate tight-twisting sections of trail. The Honzo, Operator and Process 111 are good examples of 2014 bikes with incredibly compact rear triangles: quick, aggressive in corners, fun to jump and laterally stiff.

INTERNAL HEADSET

By having the headset bearing located inside the headtube (called “zero stack”), rather than the top and bottom, we are able to achieve a number of advantages when it comes to front-end stiffness, durability and overall riding performance. The major benefit of an internal headset is the extra layer of protection it provides the bearings against the elements. Additionally, the bearings are commonly available angular contact bearings, which are easily and inexpensively replaced. 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.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

Kona warrants to the original owner that their new Kona bicycle frame purchased from an authorized Kona dealer shall be free of defective materials or workmanship for the lifetime of ownership by the original owner. This warranty is limited to five years for carbon fiber frames. During this warranty period, Kona shall repair or replace, at its sole option, the bicycle frame if Kona determines the frame is defective and subject to this limited warranty. The original owner shall pay all labor and shipping charges connected with the repair or replacement of the bicycle frame. Please see the Kona owner’s manual, provided with your bicycle, for additional information.
