For 2012, Kona has released a new full suspension 29er mountain bike with 130mm long travel called Satori. For a big-wheeled bike with big travel, the Satori frame is quite slim but still rigid enough to tackle aggressive riding well.

Created with the latest standards, the Satori features 12×142 rear axle, tapered HT, and a new version of four-bar linkage. Instead of the Walking Beam design, the Satori utilizes a Swing Link design in order to reduce its standover height but still maintains a huge degree of rider tunability.

In terms of geometry, the 2012 Kona Satori Full Suspension 29er Mountain Bike has a reasonably slack 68-degree head angle and a suspension setup that is made to pound anything on the trail. Moreover, the bike comes with an Easton Vice 29 wheelset, Maxxis Ardent tires, and 710mm bars.

Designed for riders who are fond of urban jungles and adventures on the trails is the new 2012 Specialized Hardrock Disc Hardtail XC Mountain Bike. To make sure that the mountain bike ride is really fun, its stiff frame is matched with its 80mm smooth-travel SR Suntour fork.

To keep the rolling resistance low, the knob height used in the Specialized Fast Trak LK Sport 60 TPI tires is decreased. However, riders can have confidence on the trail with the sufficient grip of the bike. Bumpy issues are tackled well by the double-walled alloy rims, which are light but durable and tough.
