It might be one of the most intuitive mountain bikes we’ve ever made. You merely need to think about what you’re going to do, and the Honzo Ti makes it happen. The 29-inch wheel Honzo has sought to blend the nostalgia of our original Kona XC sloping top tube hardtail philosophy with aggressive modern trail geometry. A bike that’s slack, with geometry that helped define the long reach, low bottom bracket and short chainstay signatures of our popular Process line. In a nutshell, a frame that gives you precise steering, great standover, stability at speed and a defining nimbleness that let’s you dance through corners, bunny hop the burl, climb with speed, and descend with supreme confidence. Join with this methodology the inherent lightweight and ride performance of Titanium, and all of a sudden you have a trail master of the tallest order.
- 3-2.5 Titanium frame
- 31.6 dropper compatible with Stealth routing
- Modular dropout system
- 44mm head tube
- Excellent tire clearance
Featuring a raw finish, the new 3-2.5 Titanium Honzo frame is highlighted by a stiff 12x142 rear axle, a long front center for great cockpit mobility and standover, relatively slack 68 degree head angle, a low bottom bracket, extremely short rear triangle, and a 31.6 dropper compatible seat tube with Stealth routing. The frame comes stock with the same adjustable thru-axle sliding geared dropouts as its steel cousin, but singlespeed versions are available. Because it has a yoke at the chainstay/bottom bracket bridge, there is room for wider tires. The ride features incredible front end and overall stiffness, intuitive trail performance and efficient pedaling. Light, lively and active, this is a trail gazelle.
