Kona Kula Bike 2015

CLIMBING FIRE ROADS, WEAVING SINGLETRACK, OR RACING CROSS COUNTRY, YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH A 27.5” SCANDIUM HARDTAIL.

Whether you’re racing short track or riding with the crew, if you’re motivated by challenging your endurance while submersing yourself into the beauty and freedom of the outdoors, Kona’s Kula 27.5” fun-machine was designed to do just that. It's a great all-around frame with modern geometry and great details to match, all at an impressive weight.

What is there to say about the 27.5” wheel size? They roll over obstacles and track better than 26” wheels, but are more maneuverable and nimble than 29” wheels. You won’t hear us quarreling that. Shaped with an emphasis on speed, the Kula features a Scandium 69 tubeset. What the heck is Scandium? Known to have one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any alloy in the world, Scandium is a potent grain refiner that when added to aluminum alloys, boosts the strength and resilience of the material by 50%. Since this material is so much stronger than conventional aluminums, less material is needed, achieving ride characteristics similar to steel but at a much lower weight penalty.

While the Kula frame can certainly hustle, in doing so it provides a smooth, stable ride in order to boost both your confidence and your love for the trail. Such features include a compact rear triangle which finds the perfect balance between stability on quick downhill sections and agility in tight-twisty sections. Like most modern mountain bikes, the Kula is also gifted with a tapered headtube which better distributes shock force for better steering precision and better balance, giving you more control in rougher terrain. As with any mountain bike geared for partying on the trail, the Kuna frame is routed for internal and external dropper seatpost compatibility.

Features:

  • Kona Race Light Scandium 69 frame material is lighter and stronger than conventional aluminum
  • Compact rear triangle strikes a perfect balance between stability and nimbleness
  • 27.5” wheel frame roll over obstacles and track better than 26-inch wheels, but are more maneuverable and nimble than 29-inch wheels
  • Tapered headtube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset, eliminates brake shudder, a stronger steering position, and improved balance

First Hardtail
Very solid bike and super light for the price. Gears were smooth and the bike handled very well for this grandpa.
My other bike is a full suspension and I like the Kula better for climbing and on hard surfaces. I will be changing out the tires from the Maxxis Ikons to Ardents in the future.

Great Bike, Great Price, Ride Ready Out of Box
The bike took about 2 hours to get up to speed. Building it was easy, and it just took a couple of passes to get everything set.

Is this a 2x10 drive train? In other words, 2 chain rings up front and a 10 cog cassette (20spd)? Thanks!
pico on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that what it means.
Does this wheel and tire set allow you to go tubless?TCS or will I have to buy 2 new additional TCS tires?
