The Dew Deluxe is the workhorse of commuters from all around the world. A reliable, easy-to-ride bike ensures a safe and efficient ride every time. With upright and comfortable geometry, a new Shimano 11-speed Deore drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, fast-rolling, puncture-resistant WTB Horizon Comp 650B x 47 tires, and fenders with mud flaps, the Dew Deluxe will get you there in time for all the water cooler gossip. Kona 6061 Aluminum Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. Tough, durable, and light alloys, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased as well as shaped, so we can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application. Internal Headset Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. 650B Wheels 650B wheels and tires have a similar overall diameter to a traditional 700c gravel or commuting tire but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, taller tire. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and mixed-surface tires means they can be run comfortably at lower pressures while still rolling quickly on a variety of surfaces. It’s the best of both worlds.
The Sutra is many things. It's functional. It's stylish. It's incredibly versatile, and it comes ready for the long haul on the bike tour of your dreams. Our Kona Cromoly steel frame is outfitted with a Brooks saddle, cork bar tape, BarCon shifters, fenders, and rack. It also features a Shimano Deore 3x10 drivetrain to give you the maximum gear range, and smooth-rolling Schwalbe Marathon Mondial 700x40c tires on WTB STi23 rims for those long days on the pavement. It's quite the looker right out of the box, and it's ready for your biggest adventure. What more could you want? Kona Cromoly Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability, and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We've never strayed from cycling's original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine, and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve. Tubeless Compatible Rims Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems. 12x142mm Axle 12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer dimension of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
