Expirience with the Kona Process 153 27.5

Kona Process 153 27.5 Review The design with 160 mm travel on the fork not only makes the Process 153 27.5 a classic enduro, but also the perfect partner for rowdy trails. The flat 64,5 degree head tube angle of the Kona Enduro oozes self-assurance, especially in challenging terrain. When it comes to the seating position, Kona chooses the middle ground between sporty and comfortable. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the Kona Enduro doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build Enduro in the same price range that are more focused on descends. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
