This Sutra Adventure bike is ready for the boldest and most ambitious adventures from day one and provides all the reliability and dependable performance for ultra-long-distance explorations.Kona ChromolyVery few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. Kona has never strayed from cycling’s original material and has worked tyrelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Chromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve. 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.
