Kona Explosif Bike 2015

Kona Explosif Bike 2015

The classic cromoly-framed Kona Explosif Bike 2015 remains as aggressive as ever, and eager to carve lines on technical singletrack. That's indeed Reynolds 520 butted tubing beneath that orange finish, lending that supple and reponsive feel and also a light, surprising build. This version offers Stealth dropper post routing, a modern requirement for XC and trail, and also a build list that's specifically geared toward the hardcore trail rider. Notable are the 120mm RockShox Recon Gold fork, sliding 12/142 dropouts that can easily be converted to single speed (love that Reynolds tubing), and enough room on both sides to easily accommodate the 2.25" inch tires you want.

Other key parts include Shimano Deore shifters and Shimano SLX brake levers and calipers, with an SLX 180mm centerlock rotor on the front and a 160mm centerlock on the rear. Also find a Shimano SLX derailleur up front with a Shimano XT Shadow Plus on the rear, and Shimano Deore hubs tied to the rims already mentioned. Chainrings on the Shimano SLX cranks are 24/38T, and they drive the 11-36T 10-speed cassette. Kona brings most of the remaining build, but the saddle is a WTB Volt Comp, and the headset is from FSA. Note that this bike comes complete with Shimano M520 clipless pedals. You're ready to rip.

Features:

  • Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes give you ultimate control
  • Maxxis Ardent tires are mounted on WTB ST i23 TCS 27.5-inch rims for the best of both worlds
  • A new tapered headset on this model offers a better interface with the fork

Are these rims and tires tubeless ready ?
Daniel on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The rims are ready to go tubeless. Tubeless rimtape already there. I can't remember the tyres as I've sold them. I put on a less aggressive tyre because it's my wife's bike. The new tyres are TR and are performing really well tubeless.
Is the fork coil or solo air?
