Kona Kula Frame 2015

Kona Kula Frame 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 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, at a low 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. 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 riding characteristics similar to steel 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.

Kona frames are THE best.
I've been a Kona fan from way back. The frame welds, the design, the overall quality is amazing. I know I can count on a great bike construction when it has the Kona name on it. The Kula frame is light and strong. This is my first scandium build. I'm starting with a Kona foundation which means I'm starting with the best.

Awesome Frame
I'm using this with my old 26 in wheels and fork. It works great. I was worried the geometry would be messed up but it's great. Super rigid, light and fast.

Sean G on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hey Sean- I have not installed it yet, but when I bought the frame, Joey Claro at Jenson recommended a Shimano XT threaded BB to go with the Kona Kula frame. http://www.jensonusa.com/Shimano-XT-BB-MT800-Bottom-Bracket.
The geo chart is in inches. The drop box is in small, medium sizes etc. what does the 17" equate to? Thanks!

What is the maximum tire width/size, for this frame?
K on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think you could fit up to a 2.35", but not much bigger than that.
does this ship with a headset installed? and if so does it include a race for 1 1/8 and 1.5 or just one race?
Dave on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dave,
This frame does not include a headset It utilizes a ZS44 upper and ZS56 lower. You will need to select the lower cup with the proper race for your fork.
