The Kona Supreme Operator Frame 2016 is comprised of a Kona DH Carbon main triangle, and 6061 aluminum stays making it a stronger and lighter machine, which only means more braaaaaap. Having an integrated headset reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible, while the tapered head-tube offers a better distribution of shock forces, a prolonged bearing life, improved balance and better steering position.
Sticking to the suspension design that helped Graham Agassiz land his 70-foot step-down at the 2014 Red Bull Rampage and Tegan Malloy's win the World Championship, Kona's evolutionary 4-bar linkage Beamer Independent Suspension is more progressive off the top, helping the bike stay higher in the travel and recover evenly from the biggest of hits. Muscling the back end, the beefy 12x157 rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface and allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. This is what a modern race ready DH bike looks like, and we definitely like what we see here.
