ZING
New for 2014, the base model Zing incorporates all of the features, ride characteristics and design elements of our Kona Carbon Race models, but in a Kona Race Light 6061 Aluminum Butted frame. Designed specifically for budding road riders and budget-oriented racers who aren’t willing to jump into a carbon frameset, the bike features smooth welds at the head and seat tube and internal rear-brake and gear routing. The geometry is similar to our carbon Zing, making for a zippy ride that beautifully handles everything from training and club racing to GranFondo riding.

KONA RACE LIGHT 7005/6061 ALUMINUM BUTTED

Kona Race Light 7005/6061 is a lighter, more performance-oriented fabrication of our 7005 and 6061 Aluminum tubing. Designed to meet Kona’s discerning race specifications, Race Light 7005/6061 uses custom butting 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. The emphasis here is on performance, lightness and speed, built the Kona way.

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.

TAPERED HEADTUBE

Aside from improving the aesthetic, due to its cleaner lines and smooth transition between the fork crown and the headset cover, tapered headtubes also offer a more solid interface between forks with tapered steertubes and the bicycle frame itself. More girth at the bottom of the headtube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself. 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 headtube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.

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.
