Description

Kona King Kahuna Hardtail Frame

Kona's first 29er carbon fiber hardtail takes everything they've learned in seven years of designing and building trail-inspired, race-winning 29er mountain bikes. Using a proprietary carbon fiber weave that's designed to be both tough and quick, the mastered geometry of the King Kahuna features short chainstays, a low bottom bracket, a stiff 142x12 rear axle, and a spec package that's all race, all speed, all King.

Kona Carbon Race

Kona Carbon Race bicycle frames are built at one of the most advanced bicycle manufacturing facilities in the world: Hodaka. In addition to producing cold-forged bicycle and frame components, including wheels for Shimano and Easton, Hodaka employs an industry-leading carbon-fiber fabrication process. Combine Kona's race-proven geometries with one of the lightest, strongest and ride-savvy materials on the planet, then put them in a facility known for its innovation, leadership, and attention to detail, and you have some of the most beautifully riding bicycles around.

The Technology

Kona Carbon Race bicycles use Prepeg technology, a specially formulated resin matrix system reinforced with man-made fibers such as carbon, glass and aramid. When cured, the Prepegs used in Kona frames represent an incredibly solid structural material that is highly durable, temperature resistant, exceptionally stiff and lightweight. These resin formulations and fiber-impregnation technologies are designed in concert with Kona's stringent product design requirements, making our bikes the ultimate balance between stiffness, lightness and ride quality.

Molding Process

At the bottom bracket, headtube and seat area, Kona Carbon Race frames use special internal silicon shells that increase the compression of carbon fibers layered in the mold. The method prevents the internal formation of wrinkles, another potential breaking point that, when avoided, increases the fatigue resistance of the bike and results in a lighter frame.
