2021 Kona Bikes
Founded & engineered by riders, Kona bikes get better every year as their engineers personally put them to the test and tweak their designs and components. These are our favorite models for Austin and Central Texas Trails, but we can special order any available Kona for you. You can check out the full line up at KonaWorld.com. All 2021 models are available for pre-order now, so call or email us for details.
The Dew is our classic all-around commuter/townie option for someone looking for an affordable, comfortable ride. We’ve modernized the Dew with a sweet new 2x8 Shimano drivetrain and integrated brake and shifter levers. Equal parts functional and fun, the Dew is at home hopping curbs on urban rides, cruising the bike paths, or rallying your local taco truck time trial.
Style points matter. The Coco pays homage to the classic European step-through bicycle. Internal routing keeps the lines clean and sleek, and puncture-resistant WTB Horizon Comp tires make flats a thing of the past. This is the bike that makes neighborhood cruising more fun, so we don’t blame you if you “forgot the milk/beer/wine” and need to ride back to the store to pick it up.
Big Honzo DL
The Big Honzo DL plays host to a bunch of upgrades for 2021. The new RockShox 35 Silver TK Solo Air fork provides 130mm of plush suspension. The Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain keeps things shifting smoothly and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes keep speed in control. The adjustable travel TransX dropper post ensures you’re always in the optimal riding position, and tubeless-ready 27.5+ WTB rims and tires keep you rolling over anything in your path.
How do you improve on a bike that already feels pretty damn close to perfect? Steel seemed like a solid move. Helping to smooth out your ride and turn heads, the Rove DL (formerly called the Rove ST) features a stunning Kona Butted Cromoly frame and Project Two Cromoly Disc fork. A reliable SRAM Rival 1x11 drivetrain and TRP Spyre C brakes ensure the bike functions as nicely as it looks. The all-new Rove DL is running on WTB KOM Light Team i23 TCS rims wrapped in WTB Venture TCS 47c tires, making it ready for anything!
MahunaThe Mahuna strikes that perfect balance of mountain bike and all-around fun rig. Its 29” wheels easily roll over obstacles and provide a smooth, predictable ride. We’ve upgraded the fork to a 100mm RockShox Judy Silver and beefed up the brakes to Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. A Shimano 11-speed drivetrain makes quick work of tough hills ensuring the Mahuna is as fun going up as it is going down.

When you’re a kid, riding a bike is the ultimate form of freedom. The Makena is the perfect starter bike for your little cyclist. This kid-friendly frame features 20” wheels with chubby 2.6” tires for excellent traction, Samox Cranks with a 28-tooth chainring and low standover make it friendly for the littles, while a 1x drivetrain allows for single-handed shifting and make it an awesome first “real” bike.
The Honzo 20 is for the mini ripper who has no problem keeping up with the older sibling and needs a bike that rides hard too! A redesigned frame fits wider 20x2.6” Vee Tire Crown Gem tires, making it easier to roll over obstacles on the trail. QR hubs keep tube swaps easy, and a Suntour XCT DS Plus 60mm fork keeps the ride nice and plush. The Honzo 20 will have your grom taking over the neighborhood in no time!
When riding your bike, you want a few simple things. Comfort, function, and control are at the top of the list, so we built the Dew Plus with all three in mind. The Dew Plus features a 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain for smooth shifting and a broad gear range. Hydraulic disc brakes keep the bike in control in tricky conditions. With geometry that keeps the rider comfortable on rides long or short and a kickstand, it’s a great choice for commutes or runs to the grocery store!
The Sutra ULTD is the continuation of a dream to make a drop bar bike as badass as possible. The beloved steel chassis of the Sutra and Sutra LTD plays host to the next iteration of the lineup. The butted Cromoly frame and Project Two Cromoly disc fork hold WTB KOM Light Team i27 TCS 2.0 rims on Maxxis Recon Race EXO TR 29x2.25” tires. That’s right. 2.25” of earth-gripping rubber. When the descents get hairy, you can get low with a Trans-X +RAD dropper post. SRAM Rival 1 flat mount disc brakes and drivetrain keep things moving (and stopping) nicely. This bike is as beautiful as it is beastly, with a gorgeous Prism paint job. Turn heads while you turn over the miles on the brand-new Sutra Unlimited.
Rove Al 650
The Rove AL 650 is the 650b-wheeled companion to the Rove AL 700. A perfect entry-level bike suitable for pavement and tire clearance big enough for off-road riding, the Rove AL 650 keeps you rolling steady at a budget-friendly price. For those riders looking for a 650b wheeled machine with all the features of its bigger sibling, look no further. A 2x Shimano 8-speed drivetrain, Hayes disc brakes, and 47c WTB Venture Comp tires make the Rove 650 AL an excellent choice for all terrain.
Process 134 DL 29The Process 134 DL 29 proved to be one of the most popular Konas of 2020. Was it the price? The spec? A combo of the two? We’re willing to bet this bike will be the belle of the ball again. Ultra-powerful SRAM G2 RS brakes keep speed in check while a RockShox Pike Select RC Charger DebonAir fork and Deluxe Ultimate shock provides a bottomless feel. Longer droppers are now coming stock in the smaller frame sizes, and with TranzX’s new +RAD post with adjustable travel, everyone will be able to find their sweet spot.
“The Process 134 proves itself to be an absolute blast on the trails and the spirit of the Process 111 lives on through it.”

This bike would shred Austin's single track trails, or blaze down Spider Mountain.
