Expirience with the Kona Unit X

Kona Unit X Review With its steel frame and rigid fork, the Unit X is a bike for stylers and purists. With its geometry, the Kona Hardtail is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Kona Hardtail. With shifting systems, other manufacturers in the price segment under 2000 Euro continue to top up to the shelf. For 1599 Euro , competitors usually deliver geometries with less fun potential. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Kona is behind its products. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Kona Hardtail sizing runs big.
