Kona's Process 111 DL charges way harder than its namesake travel number. With Kona's heralded long reach, short stem, and a big standover frame design, the aluminum Process 111 DL centers you in the bike, and allows you to go full bore into terrain that makes other XC-travel bikes shiver. By using a SRAM 1x11 drivetrain with a RaceFace Turbine crank, you ditch 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. Featuring Rocker Independent Suspension, the 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 dropper post, and you have an XC amount of travel with gigantic trail capability.
