Kona has designed a new reasonably priced entry-level mountain bike called the Mahuna for 2012. This inch-wheel hardtail is ideal for riders who want to jump on the big-wheel bandwagon. Taking pride in its Kona Race Light 7005, this Kona is lightweight in weight and geared for performance.
To produce thicker tubes at weld areas and at vital parts of the frame, Race Light 7005 uses custom butting. This also provides the rider with unbelievable strength and torsional reliability. Speed and stiffness are perfectly balanced by removing wall thickness in some parts of the frame.
With 7005 aluminum butted tubing and 29er geometry, the 2012 Kona Mahuna 29er Bike is designed to keep things simple yet exciting. Moreover, its carefully selected topnotch components make it one of the most durable 29er machines on the market today.
