Another carbon prototype?! Yup. Kona's descent-loving Process 153 is the latest bike to receive the magic plastic treatment. Slaven's prototype has a carbon front end and aluminum chain/seat stays. Internal dropper post cable routing is visible.

The Process 153 uses 27.5-inch wheels, has 153mm of Rocker Independent Suspension, a 160mm Pike fork, oversized pivots and bearings, a low BB, 66.5-degree headtube angle, and the shortest chainstays possible.

Again, if you're seeing a carbon rig that looks this polished, chances are good that a production version is just around the corner.
