29-Inch Wheel (29ers)
$1,199.00 - $1,550.00
The Karate Monkey helped set the standard for 29er geometry. While its tucked-in rear wheel keeps it nimble and maneuverable, its lack of shifting componentry keeps the bike simple — and the rider filled with a cathartic rage. With a frame and fork made of custom-designed Surly CroMoly “’Natch” steel, the Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively, durable ride. The Karate Monkey frame has recently been updated to include features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on their Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail oriented. The minimalist component package comes courtesy of SRAM, and a capable Alex wheelset rounds out this trail-ready monster.

The Karate Monkey was one of the first production 29ers. It put the 29? platform in front of a lot of people at a price within reach of many a bike nerd. Since then, 29” has become a full-blown category, with entire bike companies dedicated to the platform. In contrast to the old standard 26” wheels, 29? wheels have unique benefits: delivering increased traction, smoothing out terrain, carrying inertia, and generally fitting tall riders better. With a frame and fork made of custom-designed Surly CroMoly “’Natch” steel, the Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively, durable ride. The Karate Monkey frame has recently been updated to include features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on their Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail oriented. The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger spaced to what we call Gnot-Boost spacing. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection. The Karate Monkey SS is the sensei for all of your single speed sensations.

Once upon a time a bunch of mountain bikers dreamed up something wild: a drop bar bike that felt like a mountain bike and rode like a mountain bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes and 1x drivetrain. It had a wider bar with a 16-degree flare that made for more aggressive descending. The Sutra LTD came to reality in all of its dreamy glory and is an absolute riot on-road or off.

Diamondback's Recoil Comp is a trail bike that harnesses the power of full suspension, for riders who want to put hardtails in the dust. Its aluminum frame revolves around a tried-and-true optimized single pivot suspension design, saving your ride and your pocketbook. With 100mm of smooth air suspension both front and rear, you’ll find the 29” wheels stay planted on both climbs and descents, giving you amazing traction and control. 27 gears of Shimano precision allow you to keep spinning no matter how steep the climb is, and hydraulic disc brakes keep everything under control when it’s time to point it downhill. We put aggressive Kenda Honey Badger tires on our Doublewall rims for maximum grip. The Recoil Comp is a great choice for riders who want a dependable full-suspension bike to rip any trail.
The benefits of full suspension aren't exclusive to superbikes. The Recoil uses a simple single-pivot design to deliver the smooth ride that comes from a bike that's doing everything it can to maintain traction underneath you. Four inches of front and rear suspension travel combine with 29" wheels to take the edge off all but the biggest roots, holes, and rocks on the trail, giving you a plush and smooth ride. The frame is built using butted and formed aluminum tubing, a standard of light weight and durability in the bike world, so it's ready to brave the mountains with you. You'll be rolling for seasons to come with a trail-proven parts build including a Shimano 3×8 speed drivetrain, Tektro disc brakes, and solid components all around.

Racing isn’t for everyone, but for some, it is everything—even if it's only on Strava.

Its butted aluminum frame and RockShox Monarch RL shock gives you 100mm of rear travel, while a 120mm-travel RockShox Recon fork floats across rock gardens. The wide, lightweight 29-inch WTB wheels fly up climbs and optimize the traction of the Maxxis Ardent and Ikon tires so you can fly through the flow and grip with confidence in loose corners. SRAM serves up 11 nicely spaced speeds with outstanding 1x chain retention. SRAM also provides hydraulic brakes that deliver the well-modulated braking you need to carry more speed more of the time. With the stiff Kona cockpit and a Trans-X Dropper dropper post, you'll blow right past your buddy's fastest Strava time.

The Race Light Carbon frame features Kona's Fuse Independent Suspension and a RockShox Monarch XX shock for 100mm of efficient, traction-loving travel. A 120mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork ensures precise steering, small bump compliance, and a love for those bigger bumps. 29-inch WTB carbon Ci31 wheels offer instant acceleration, will hold their speed, and are tough enough for rowdy, rock-filled descents. SRAM's 12-speed Eagle drivetrain gives you quick, solid shifting and a gear-range that's ready for the steepest grades and the fastest sprints. A big engine needs powerful brakes, so Kona hooked it up with SRAM's Guise RSCs for all the control and modulation you could ask for. A KS dropper post and stiff, wide RaceFace cockpit give you an edge on your competition and extra fun all around.
Full squish bikes may get all the attention these days, but nothing compares to riding a hardtail on the trail, and the Honzo CR Trail is perhaps the one bike that can steal the limelight.

The one that started it all: the almighty steel Honzo. Low-slung. Long reach. Tight rear end. Unmistakably Honzo. What we did with the original steel Honzo has trickled into the DNA of almost every Kona bike since – which is a nice tip of the hat to the material we first started making bikes with. We sell the Honzo ST as a frame only so you can build your own dream ride.
We believe in the motto “go big or go home.” With the all new carbon Operator, we went big, so you can go faster. This is the racehorse of downhill bikes. We’ve done extensive testing with World Cup racer Connor Fearon to get everything up to full speed. With the ability to run 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels, adjustable chainstay lengths, and an adjustable reach, it’s fully customizable to your liking. Whether you’re racing your local downhill track, slaying laps in Whistler, or standing atop the world cup podium, the Operator is the ultimate downhill machine.
Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Process has been at the forefront of the evolution of enduro bikes for years. The motto of the Process is to take chances…as long as it makes the ride more fun. What started as a calculated risk has turned traditional trail bike geometry on its head and has spearheaded progression. This bike is built around descending, but consistency across all terrain is what makes it truly special. The 2019 Process delivers a gravity-hungry bike that is equally adept at ascending. This is the long travel, aggressive enduro bike that you’ve been waiting for.

It’s nice having that one bike you can just grab and go with no worries about how it will handle on the climb or descent. We’ve built the Process 153 29 to be affordable and handle everything a trail can throw at it so you can spend more time having fun and no time worrying about your gear. This year, the frame sheds a few hundred grams of weight and features 160mm of front travel via a RockShox Yari fork, and 153mm of rear travel is provided by a Deluxe RT Debonair shock.

You’ll be moving fast, so we’ve added SRAM Code brakes for maximum stopping power. As the Griswolds would say, “She’s a beaut, Clark!”
We had one goal with the Operator CR: win races. We’ve seen what 29-inch bikes can do on a downhill track, and the Operator CR is ready to take podiums. With two positions offering 15mm of rear wheel adjustments and 10mm of reach adjustment, it’s easier to control the feel of the bike to get the ride you want. While we spec the bike as a 29er, you are able to run 27.5-inch wheels as well. Shorter or longer, 29 or 27.5, you have the power to customize your ride. Front and rear RockShox suspension and powerful SRAM Code brakes round out this innovative and wickedly fast race machine.
