KONA: Sutra 2017


Looking for a bicycle which is ready for anything? The Sutra is certainly one to consider. The geometry is based on Kona’s new CX, then enhanced with a taller head tube and longer top tube, paired with a 50mm offset fork. This improves tyre clearance and limits toe overlap: great for trekking!

The derailleur hanger on the rear dropout is replaceable, the mudguard eyelets are inside the seatstays, and there is external cable routing for both shifters which keeps things nice and neat on the open road.

Twin water-bottle bosses on the inner triangle are boosted by a third on the underside, which is protected from the elements by an extended front mudflap. The new fork design has tapered blades for a more compliant ride.

The Sutra frame features slightly heavier gauge tubing than Kona’s Rove, to provide a stiffer platform: great for heavier loads, whether you’re carrying camping kit through the Cairngorms or computers to the office.
