Kona: 2020 Cinder Cone
The one which started it all for so many of us: the legendary Kona Cinder Cone! Having celebrated 30 years in production last year, this is amongst the most versatile mountain bikes of all time. With the new Race Light 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 2020.
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 SRAM SX-Eagle 11-50t 12speed drivetrain gives you the range to tackle all manner of hills, whilst the RockShox Recon RL Solo Air 100mm forks keep things balanced up-front. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes paired with WTB Trail Boss 27.5 x 2.25″ tyres 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.
