Kona: Sutra


Looking for a bicycle which is ready for anything? The Sutra is certainly one to consider. The geometry is based on Kona’s CX, enhanced with a taller head tube and longer top tube, paired with Kona’s Project Two Cromoly Disc Touring fork. This offers great tyre clearance and limits toe overlap.

There are some neat finishing touches like a replaceable derailleur hanger on the rear, mudguard eyelets inside the seatstays, and external cable routing for both shifters: this keeps things nice and neat on the open road. A Brooks B17 leather saddle is there for you too!

“The Sutra is a dangerous bike—not because of any structural issues, but because it’ll make you want to ride out of your office on a Tuesday and keep pedaling until you’ve reached the opposite coast.”
Bicycling Magazine (USA)

Twin water-bottle bosses on the inner triangle are boosted by a third on the underside, which is well protected from the elements by an extended front mudflap. The new fork design has mounting points on the blades to make use of all the space you have, balancing the weight as it does.

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