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.
