Kona Libre CR DL Adventure Road BikeThe Kona Libra CR is a stable and versatile high-performance carbon adventure bike that’s kitted out with superb components to ensure every journey is comfortable, efficient and enjoyable adventure riding experience. With a full-carbon frameset that provides a lightweight and agile performance while a SRAM Rival 1 1×11-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 11-42T cassette and Rival hydraulic disc brakes.Kona CarbonDesigned to be lightweight and built to demanding standards. Carbon fibre has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, we place our efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibres are in the right places. Our designers work very closely with our manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability and – finally – weight stipulations that we expect from our bikes. Tapered Head TubeMore 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. 12mm Thru Axles12x142mm, 12×148 and 12×157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. For 2017, you’ll see the 12×148 Boost standard in the mix. Boost spacing provides more tyre clearance at the chainstay yoke, while the rear wheel is stiffer and more durable relative to a 12×142 thru-axle. Tubeless Compatible RimsTubeless rims allow for tyres with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tyre pressure, which provides better tyre grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tyre systems.
