Mountain bikes are constantly evolving. Every year they are getting slacker geometry, more travel, better suspension, and crazier gear combinations. However, not everyone needs or wants a mountain bike that has suspension, some riders just want something simple and fun to ride. The 2018 Kona Unit X Bike is a Reynolds 520 steel framed hardtail mountain bike that doesn't have any suspension. It comes with 27.5-plus wheels and tires which provide excellent grip and damping while on the trail. It is the perfect bike for riding on the trail or taking on a bikepacking trip in the backcountry.
The Unit X comes with a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain that includes the crankarms, rear derailleur, and shifter. SRAM's NX drivetrain provides an 11-speed cassette with an 11-42 gear range that is perfect for tackling those tough climbs but also provides gearing perfect for the flats. The SRAM Level T hydraulic disc brakes provide ample stopping power for those long descents and they are paired with SRAM Centerline rotors. It features WTB Scraper i40 TCS rims laced to Formula hubs and are perfectly paired with WTB Ranger TCS tires so you can set everything up tubeless for a smoother ride and better traction. While it doesn't come with any crazy Fox suspension, it does have a Kona Plus fork that is strong and durable. If you're looking for a simple mountain bike that is fun to ride on the trails, then you'll love the 2018 Kona Unit X.
