Description

Kona's Process 111 redefines what a short-travel 29er is capable of. By using a SRAM 1x11 drivetrain, you lose the front derailleur and get super-short chainstays and a low bottom bracket, so you get all the advantages of the big wheels while incorporating Kona's much-loved slack/low/pinned geometry. Combined with their signature long reach, short stem and a big standover frame design, which centers you on the bike, the aluminum Process takes on terrain that makes other XC-travel bikes shiver. Featuring Rocker Independent Suspension, the 111mm travel ride is plush on the descents and smooth on the climbs, something we can all agree on. Add in a 120mm Pike fork up front, tubeless-ready WTB wheels and a KS Lev Integra dropper post, and you have an XC bike that's mega fun with huge trail capability.
