[NEWS] Kona Announces Two New Bikes

It might be deep in the heart of winter in the northern hemisphere, but we’re starting to see signs of spring popping up. The longer days and slightly warmer temperatures mean bike season is just around the corner. Ushering in a new season seems like the perfect time to introduce a new bike, so with that in mind, we are thrilled to introduce the all-new Satori and Satori DL!


Don’t call it a comeback… The 2019 Satori is the best of both worlds old and new. On a five-year hiatus, the Satori reinvents itself in the best way possible. Our original longer-travel 29er, the new Satori has heritage derived from the Process, the Hei Hei, and the Hei Hei Trail. With updated geometry, longer reach, a shorter stem, and a trunnion shock, the Satori is as awesome as it was before, only with the benefit of a time warp. 140/130 travel, fused suspension, and all the goodies, it’s the ultimate all-around machine.

Satori DL – $3,499 USD

If you love the feel of a 29er and the get-up-and-go of the racy Hei Hei Trail DL, the Satori DL is the perfect companion. With a custom drawn aluminum frame and FUSE rear end, the Satori was built from the ground up to ride like the wind. Featuring a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, RockShox Revelation fork and custom tuned RockShox Deluxe RL Solo Air rear shock, the Satori DL has everything you need for big days in the saddle.

Taking a cue from the Hei Hei Trail, the Satori is a longer-travel cross-country bike wrapped in an affordable package. 29” wheels keep the Satori rolling fast over obstacles while a Rockshox Recon Gold 140mm travel fork and RockShox 130mm custom tuned Solo Air rear shock keep the ride smooth.
