Expirience with the Kona Honzo

Kona Honzo Review You prefer your bike to be used as a on long tours in light terrain? Then the Honzo and you could really hit it off. When it comes down to handling, Kona does not compromise. With its balanced handling style, the Kona Downcountry-Bike is ready for the majority of singletrails. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. The strongest case for this bike is however: The coherent geometry and grippy tires ensure full send mode on the trail. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
