The 2016 Kona Honzo AL/DL (pictured, lower right) is a brand new model offered this year. Kona has taken the aggressive and progressive geometry of its cromoly cousin (the Honzo AL) and reduces the weight by nearly 40% with this alloy frame. Kona calls this bike a "Process 111 without the rear travel". They've added an increased reach to match the sizing used on the Kona Process bikes, and a press fit 92 BB and 12x148 axle for maximum tire clearance. Tani, the shop owner, plans on building one of these up for himself!
We have this frame available in sizes S, M, L. MSRP is $499.

This is another model that Kona compared to the Process line. It's got an increased reach to match the sizing on the Process bikes, a slack 68-degree head tube angle, low bottom bracket and short chainstays, plus a super-low top tube for great standover. MSRP is $525.

A progressive geometry features short chainstays (for confident cornering, maneuverability, and jump-ability), a low bottom bracket for an in-the-bike feel, and the lowest standover possible on all sizes.
We have the Kona Process 134 frame available in sizes M and L. MSRP is $1699.
