Kona Major Jake Bike 2015

A carbon do-it-all fun machine

Featuring a light-weight carbon construction and a stable geometry, the Kona Major Jake Bike 2015 promises to be one of the funnest bikes you'll ever ride. Fair warning, it'll take tremedous effort to hold yourself back from taking part in your local cross race, ride an epic gravel ride with your friends or even embark on a solo weekend tour.

The Kona Major Jake Bike 2015 features a polished geometry with a lower bottom bracket, slightly taller head tube and slightly shorter top tube, resulting in a bike that’s steady and allows a more neutral position, while preserving the racing tradition of the platform. The head tube angle for all models corresponds to the bottom bracket drop, allowing the bike to be ridden more aggressively without fear of performing an uncontrolled superman. The slacker head tube coupled with the shorter top tube also preserve the wheelbase and make for a responsive, confident ride. You'll enjoy the Shimano 105 and Ultegra components, since they provide some of the smoothest shifting around. Paired with the Stan's Iron Cross Wheel-set youy'll have yourself a light tubeless set up that can take on any challenge.

Features:

  • Kona Race Light Carbon Construct The smart fabrication uses TORAY fibers, which is the same weave used in formala 1 cars and is the most technologically advanced in the industry.
  • Tapered Head Tube gives more girth at the bottom of the head tube to better distribute shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing positive steering performance
  • Kona Full Carbon CX Race Disc fork absorbs vibration and reduces the overall weight
  • Internal cable routing prevents cable contamination while maintaining a clean aesthetic

Great CX race bike and good all rounder

Comments about Kona Major Jake Bike 2015:

I have a 2008 Major Jake (Scandium) which I have raced for the past few years, I have also used it for a few touring holidays and it has been utterly reliable throughout. The only complaint I have are the brakes; cantilever brakes are always lousy but the front brake on the 2008 Major Jake suffered from severe judder - extremely irritating, particularly during a race.

My new 2015 carbon framed Major Jake from Jenson USA suffers none of the braking issues of the earlier model; with mechanical disk brakes, the bike is totally transformed. The brakes are superb and very powerful, there is no judder from the fork and the Challenge Grifo Plus tyres handle the braking forces well. The FSA Energy Cross crank set & Shimano 105/Ultegra shifting are smooth & accurate, as you'd expect. The bike feels & handles pretty much identically to the older model, there is no noticeable weight difference although I haven't weighed either bike so can't say for sure.

I've ridden the bike several times since I got it, including a 120 mile off road ride - it hasn't missed a beat.
This is a great bike with a high spec and a good wheel-set. The Jenson USA price was unbeatable, even after import duty & Tax; I'm looking forward to racing it this coming season.
