Expirience with the Kona Honzo ESD

Kona Honzo ESD Review You can't kill a legend! With the Honzo ESD , Kona relies on a steel frame to have exotic status. Especially in extremely steep terrain, this combination makes for smooth handling. The view of the geometry data clearly reveals: the Kona All Mountain has a sporty seating position. On the downhill, however, the All Mountain of Kona is left in the dust by its competitors. An important point at the end: The sporty orientation makes the Kona All Mountain a real mountain goat in the All Mountains. The guarantee promise of 25 years ensures trust.
