Kona Big Kahuna 2014 -
The Kona Big Kahuna has had an upgrade this year with the Race Light Kona carbon frame, this big wheeled 29er is a fast tracking, feather-light XC race bike. The geometry is classic Kona genius, with short chainstays for responsive handling, stiff design for effective power transfer and progressive angles that help balance ride comfort.
The 29er wheels get traction from Maxxis Ikon 29er specific folding bead tyres with the WTB rims fixed to Shimano Deore hubs. Hydraulic disc brakes provide confident and reliable stopping power with Shimano Deore crank and front dérailleur providing great power transfer.
Tubeless Compatible Rims
An increasing amount of 2014 Kona models feature the benefits of tubeless compatible rims. Tubeless rims allow for tyres with more puncture resistance, better tire grip, lower rolling resistance and weight savings over traditional tube and tyre systems.
Tapered headtubes are not just for improving the aesthetics of your bike, due to its cleaner lines and smooth transition between the fork crown and headset cover, tapered headtubes offer a more solid connection between the frame and forks. This connection helps to distribute shock force better prolonging the life of the headset itself.
Kona Carbon frames are built with a monocoque main triangle that allows continuous fibres at the tube junctures, resulting in a stronger and lighter overall structure. The Kona production process also eliminates as much bonded-in aluminium inserts as possible. When we do put alloy into the frame, we take very specific steps on their surface treatment and have special jigs for each step to ensure proper alignment. Kona Carbon frames are only moulded with internal air bags, which are removed after the moulding process. This means our carbon frames are made from only the best ingredients: carbon fibre and epoxy.
Kona warrants to the original owner that their new Kona bicycle frame purchased from an authorized Kona dealer shall be free of defective materials or workmanship for the lifetime of ownership by the original owner. This warranty is limited to five years for carbon fibre frames. Please see the Kona owners manual, provided with your bicycle, for additional information.
