Kona Sutra - 2018
The Sutra is our classic steel touring bike, with all the accoutrements you’ll need to set out on your dream trip. The Brooks B17 saddle and Shimano Deore drivetrain are complemented by the confidence-inspiring Hayes disc brakes and Schwalbe Marathon Mondial touring tires. Whether it’s a weekend out of town or a summer on the open road, the Sutra is your ticket to freedom.
Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We’ve never strayed from cycling’s original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.
