FEATURES

3-2.5 TITANIUM

At Kona, we only use 3-2.5 Titanium, an incredibly strong and lightweight metal consisting of three percent aluminum, 2.5 percent vanadium, and 94.5 percent pure titanium. Excellent fatigue life, lightweight property consistency, formability, and corrosion resistance are but a few of the reasons we use 3-2.5. Our titanium frames, aside from the Honzo Ti, which is made in Taiwan, are manufactured in Tennessee, U.S.A., by Lynskey Performance Designs, one of the top titanium fabricators in the world.

Models: Honzo Ti Frame, Raijin Ti Frame, Explosif Ti Frame, Rove Ti Frame, Esatto Ti Disc Frame

INTEGRATED HEADSET

Integrated headsets are simple, light and effective headset systems whereby the bearing race cups are actually part of the head tube, and they are either machined away and left with the head tube, bonded (carbon), or welded in with steel or alloy. Like an internal headset, an integrated headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.

Models: Honzo CR Trail DL, Honzo CR Trail, Honzo CR Race, Esatto DDL, Esatto Disc, Esatto, Esatto Fast, Zing CR, Zing AL, PhD

TAPERED HEAD TUBE

More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it’s needed.
