First Look: Kona's 2014 Process Lineup - One Platform, Three Bikes, Six Models
1 of 12
Kona's 2014 enduro and all-mountain lineup looks pretty incredible, and it's highlighted by the Process 153 green machine right before your eyes. The new Process range has been in the works for three years, and includes the 153, the 134 (two 27.5-inch bikes), and the 111 (a 29er). Like you've probably already figured out, the numbers correlate to the amount of rear wheel travel on each bike.
Earlier this year we met up with Matt Slaven in Oregon to shoot this ripping vid. He's rallying a prototype Process.
For those requiring a dash more travel in their Enduro rig, the $4,999 Process 153 DL (shown above) offers the versatility of 27.5-inch wheels with exceptional pedaling and suspension performance that will keep you pinned on the descents. The linkage incorporates the same large bearings as the 134, while the frame geometry features a low BB, using the shortest possible chainstays for a nimble, responsive ride, but at the same time increasing the front center of the bike, allowing for a slack 66.5-degree headtube angle, longer toptube and a short (40mm) stem.
