Kona: 2022 Cinder Cone
The one which started it all for so many of us: the legendary Kona Cinder Cone! Having celebrated 30 years in production, this is amongst the most versatile mountain bikes of all time. With an 6061 Aluminum Butted frameset retaining it’s 27.5 inch wheels and a carefully chosen component set, this is one of the all time greats reinvented once again for 2022.
What set’s it apart? It’s poise. This is a low-down, hunkered frame for tearing up trails and launching over jumps with the same youthful energy is had way back in 1988. The Shimano Deore 11-51t 11 speed drivetrain gives you the range to tackle all manner of hills, whilst the RockShox Judy Silver TK Solo Air 100mm forks keep things balanced up-front. Maxxis Forecaster 27.5 x 2.35″ tyres paired with hydraulic disk brakes and WTB ST i27 TCS 2.0 tubeless-ready rims rein you in whatever the environment, so no surprises.
As a hardtail it’s ride is consistent over the fastest of terrain, without losing grip when it counts. It’s tightly-packed rear triangle ensures maximum traction and the unparalleled ability to pop a wheelie on command. Yet throw your weight over the bars and it’ll stick the most aggressive of lines with ease, switching from an almost BMX-style ride, to a sprinter in a heartbeat.
