Kona Explosif 27.5

The real-trail feel of steel, perfected geometry and carefully selected components explode in a fury of railing good times in the 2016 Explosif. The ideal bike for those who love a quick, tough, simple and fun ride. Perfect for technical singletrack and aggressive riding.

A from-the-ground-up re-think of Kona hardtail mountain bikes. First, they’re introducing size increments that ensure they hit every type of rider. Now you can get closer to having a custom fit between a size structure that’s consistent across their entire range of mountain bikes. New aspects of the geometry are related to the ride and handling, with slacker head tubes angles, lower bottom brackets and shorter chainstays. The result is a more capable bike for more challenging terrain, without comprising speed and efficiency when under power.
