The Libre DL is the ultimate adventure machine. Our Race Light Carbon frame, new Kona Verso Carbon Touring fork, Easton EA70AX wheels, and SRAM Force 1 components make this thing a rocket ship on any kind of hill. And by any hill we mean that: gravel grind, monster singletrack climb, or a weekend haul over a mountain pass. The Libre DL knows no limits.
We had fun designing the Rove NRB DL. With homage to its steel cousin, the NRB has creative geometry to allow for bigger tire clearance, and custom dropouts that are easily used with fenders. Size XS comes with smaller 40c tires. Nicely dressed with a Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain, a carbon fork, and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, the NRB DL is a unique bike that is ready for anything.
The intention is in the name, as the Rove is the perfect bike to use as a wandering companion. Our most traditional drop bar offering, the Rove is willing to go the distance whether on pavement, dirt, or even gravel. Outfitted with Hayes mechanical disc brakes, and a wide range of gearing, the Rove is an affordable, road-ready steed.
“This bike has it all.” “How can it get any better?” “I’m speechless. It’s perfect.” It’s not uncommon to hear people talk about the Rove LTD in similar terms. Simply put, there’s nothing left out of this thoughtfully spec’d bike. Reynolds 853 steel is the chassis for SRAM Force 1 components, our full carbon flat mount CX race disc fork, and WTB ASYM i23 wheels.
Once upon a time a bunch of mountain bikers dreamed up something wild: a drop bar bike that felt like a mountain bike and rode like a mountain bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes and 1x drivetrain. It had a wider bar with a 16-degree flare that made for more aggressive descending. The Sutra LTD came to reality in all of its dreamy glory and is an absolute riot on-road or off.
What happens when you put a mountain bike, road bike, and touring bike in a blender and hit go? The Sutra. Call it the drop bar bike for mountain bikers, or the beast that is up to all burdens, but the Sutra is definitely one thing: bad ass. 700c wheels make it fast rolling. Beefier tires make rough terrain disappear, and there’s just something really special about the feel of a steel frame in motion. The Sutra LTD offers style, an incredible ride, and amazing handling in one gorgeous package.
The Libre is the result of years of dreaming up the ultimate carbon dream machine. It’s part road bike, part mountain bike, part gravel grinder, and entirely badass. A Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain ensures maximum gear range, while WTB 650b tubeless ready wheels provide ample clearance for your favorite tires. Our new Kona Verso Carbon Touring fork is one of the only carbon forks on the market that allows for multiple rack and fender mounting options.
When the ride requires speed, it’s important to pay attention to the little details. Fenders for bad weather and 9 speed gearing provide the comfort and range needed to access any kind of road in any kind of weather. The Rove DL is the answer to your road needs no matter when and where you ride.
Wherever you may Rove … is the perfect place to be. On-road, off-road, gravel, touring, bikepacking - the Rove is the bike of all drop bar trades. With multiple combinations of wheel sizes and gearing configurations you can truly build the Rove you’ve always dreamed of for whatever size adventure you’re planning and at whatever budget best suits your needs.
The Sutra is many things. It’s gorgeous. It’s stylish. It’s incredibly versatile, and it comes ready for the long haul. Our Kona Cromoly steel frame is outfitted by a Brooks saddle, cork bar tape, BarCon shifters, a Shimano Deore 3x9 drivetrain to give you maximum gearing, and smooth-rolling 700c WTB wheels. It’s quite the looker right out of the box, and it’s ready for your biggest adventure. What more could you want?
Sometimes we hit a crossroads where the pavement ends, and the dirt begins. Enter the Rove NRB. 650b wheels, a carbon flat mount disc fork, and mechanical disc brakes mean that transition from pavement to dirt is seamless. Couple those features with a SRAM Apex 1x drivetrain, and the Rove NRB is begging to take you away from your traditional route and into territories unexplored.
Wherever you may Rove … is the perfect place to be. On-road, off-road, gravel, touring, bikepacking - the Rove is the bike of all drop bar trades. For those that have a love affair with steel, the Rove ST will slide rightfully near the top of your “next to buy” list. The Rove ST runs on 650b wheels and tires for any-road capability you can fine-tune to your heart's desire.
Consider a simple question: what is a modern road bike? If you ask Kona, it would be quick on the pavement but completely capable of putting in time on a variety of surfaces. Thru-axles, hydraulic brakes, and room for big tires. The ability to run both racks and fenders, simultaneously. Triple bottle mounts on the frame. See where we're going? The Rove NRB is a distinctly Kona take on the modern all-day road bike.
Good things come to those who wait. If road biking were to dream up a version of itself that was capable of not only smashing distance on pavement, but also excel at actual trail riding, it would fall in love with the Libre. A combination of the Sutra and Rove bikes, we put versatility at the top of the priority list. Light and fast are the motto with carbon frames and wheel size interchangeability. No matter the distance or terrain, the Libre is the answer.
