OUT OF THE BOX 

All too often we can get sucked into the same old habits. Same trails, same bike, same everything. Sometimes you’ve got to get out of the box. Live a little. Breathe. And then shred. 

The Hei Hei Trail is an out of the box thinker, like many of Kona’s bikes. Everyone who swings a leg over one notes that it outrides its numbers, surpassing their expectations of a trail bike’s capabilities. Light and efficient with its full carbon frame and Fuse suspension design, snappy and playful on the way back down.

 

While the Fuse suspension design is shared with our race-ready Hei Hei cross-country bike, the Hei Hei Trail, with 140mm of travel and 27.5″ wheels, is a completely different beast. It’s the kind of bike that challenges preconceptions and redefines what a bike in this class can do. 

RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX AND UNDER OUR WORLD CUP RACER 

With the Hei Hei Trail’s lineage, it may have been expected of us to produce a video featuring one of our Endurance Team racers. But the reality is, this bike may just get you out of your box, thinking differently about the Hei Hei name from which this bike found its lineage, and pedaling to places you previously considered outside that box. 

So, we sent World Cup downhiller Connor Fearon into British Columbia’s Selkirk Mountains with the Hei Hei Trail. And what we came out with was exactly the proof we needed that this bike doesn’t belong in the box, but up in the hills, getting loose. We tend to think you’ll agree.

HEI HEI TRAIL DETAILS 

All three Hei Hei Trail models feature the same Kona Race Light full carbon frame. From the top-spec Hei Hei Trail Supreme through the Hei Hei Trail DL and the Hei Hei Trail, you can expect to find wide rims, great tires, and high quality suspension components. No matter which model you choose, you can be assured it’ll be ready to shred right out of the box.

    Funny story: When I saw the Jeffsy 27.5 release, I thought it would be like this...which it is not.
    Kona gets it. The move to expand the "super aggro enduro race beast for the consumer" has been a little misguided in my opinion, as most people would be perfectly well-off with a general issue 140-150mm, 67 +/- HA bike with proper reach and stack. Looking through the geo chart on this bike, I can't help but smile to myself, because this is actually what they've done. Rad.
    Also, this was 100% the video I needed to see today; Dark mood averted.
