For 2019 Kona turned their Operator CR into a race-focused machine with 29 inch wheels and aggressive geometry. The company also realized that many riders who purchase downhill bikes might not be sprinting towards every finish line, but instead flowing down fun bike park trails. Because of this, the new Operator CR is extremely adjustable. If 29 inch wheels aren’t your thing, just throw on a pair of 27.5 inch wheels and flip the geometry chip and you instantly have a 27.5 park machine with the same BB height as the 29er. You can also adjust the chainstay length from 425mm to 440mm. Keep it short for fun whips and playfulness or make it long for all out control and stability at high speeds. As a final touch, the Operator CR comes with a headset than can be adjusted by 10mm to increase or decrease the bike’s reach.
Being the flagship downhill bike for Kona, the Operator CR comes with an incredible build included a Boxxer World Cup fork and Super Deluxe Rear Shox, the highest offering from Rock Shox suspension. A reliable SRAM GX drivetrain takes care of the shifting and the renowned SRAM Code brakes will stop the bike on a dime. Of course, no DH bike is complete without a set of Maxxis DHF tires front and rear. Tying the whole bike together is the Kona DH Carbon frame with an aluminum chainstay. Chainstay’s always have a lot of rocks thrown up at them, so why not make it out of durable aluminum.
From racing on the World Cup Circuit under Connor Fearon, to shredding down Whistler Bike Park under Miranda Miller, the Kona Operator CR will take you where you want to go faster than you ever could. If you are looking for a World Cup worthy DH bike that is just as fun as a park rig, the Kona Operator is the perfect bike for you.
