You love the Honzo but wanted an aggressive hardtail with a bit more versatility. Enter the Big Honzo. With geometry derived from our carbon Big Honzo, the Big Honzo was designed around a 27.5+ wheel but is cross-compatible with a 29" wheel, allowing you to create your favorite configuration to get the most out of the terrain. The Big Honzo features 130mm of RockShox front suspension, boost spacing, a SRAM NX/SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, dropper post routing with up to a 200mm insertion depth, and hydraulic disc brakes, all in an affordable package.

- Kona 6061 Aluminum Butted frame
- RockShox Recon RL Solo Air 130mm fork
- SRAM NX/SX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain
- WTB ST i35 TCS 27.5" rims w/WTB Ranger TCS 27.5x2.8" tires
- Shimano hydraulic disc brakes
- Trans-X dropper post

Plus-size rims and tires

Wider than standard yet narrower than fat, plus-size rims and tires hit the sweet spot in grip, stability, and speed, giving you more confidence on technical terrain. Compared to a standard tire you’ll feel grip in places you wouldn’t expect thanks to a bigger contact patch and greater rollover clearance. More air volume allows lower tire pressures which softens bumps and increases float on sand or snow. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the benefits of plus-size tires and rims will amplify your mountain biking fun.

Dropper posts

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
