Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Process has been at the forefront of the evolution of enduro bikes for years. The motto of the Process is to take chances… as long as it makes the ride more fun. What started as a calculated risk has turned traditional trail bike geometry on its head and has spearheaded progression. This bike is built around descending, but consistency across all terrain is what makes it truly special. The 2019 Process delivers a gravity-hungry bike that is equally adept at ascending. This is the long travel, aggressive enduro bike that you’ve been waiting for.
New this year is the Process 153 CR 29. Kona have taken the amazing ride quality from their Process 29 and stiffened and shaved weight off the bike with their Kona DH carbon frame. With a 160mm RockShox Lyrik fork up front and a RockShox Super Deluxe RCT Debonair shock in the back the ride is buttery smooth. A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, Reverb Dropper and Guide R brakes round out this killer build.
