During its year of introduction, the Major Jake has already made a mark on the cycling world after helping Kona Team?s Helen Wyman?s land third in the 2011 European cross season. With the same outstanding stiffness and speed, this World-Cup-ready carbon fiber cyclocross bike is back for 2012.
Since the Major Jake is one of the most respected cyclocross bikes on the market today, Kona Bikes made sure that its 2012 version has a lot of new things to offer. Its fancier new components include a Shimano Ultegra tubeless compatible wheelset and Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes.
As it did to Kona Team?s very own cyclocross racer, the 2012 Kona Major Jake Cyclocross Bike will help riders wherever they may travel. The carbon frame of this award-winning cyclocross racing machine comes with a full carbon tapered steerer fork as well as an FSA Carbon CX cockpit.
