At Kona, we’re all about the freedom and empowerment of the bicycle. We have been since 1988. We still have the same founding owners. We’re still populated by a staff of keen, active, impassioned cyclists. We’re not big, nor are we that small. Just a dedicated group of cyclists making bicycles for people who love bikes-no matter if that love is new or long established.
Since we produced our first mountain bikes 25 years ago, Kona has partnered with the finest frame-building and material manufacturers in the world. It’s why our name is synonymous with longevity, durability, performance and value. For 2013, we feature some of the most technologically advanced bicycle frame materials in the world: the simple elegance of Kona Cromoly steel, the speed and agility of Kona Carbon Race, Kona Scandium 6069 Aluminum alloy and our everlasting 7005 Aluminum. At Kona, we pride ourselves on using the right materials for the right applications, going to great lengths to ensure your bike is built with The Long Sweet Ride in mind. – Kona World
