Here is a sneak peek of the New 2012 Kona operator DH, there has been a few subtle changes to the frame which are in the right direction for a smoother more compliable bike than it already was.
We should have stock of these new babies and more from the Kona stable in late August
Colours awesome to….
Last year we launched our new Operator platform with one purpose: ride the bejesus out of the worlds downhill tracks all week, race the hell out of them on Sunday, then do it every weekend forever. It starts with a wholly rejuvenated version of our famed Walking Beam 4-Bar suspension system. The design features incredibly plush and durable oversized axle pivots and bearings, combined with low standover and a modern, balanced riding position. Weve taken everything weve learned from our World-Championship-winning Stab and created a bike that speeds into a new era of downhill riding. Its easy to maintain, with a supple and deep rear suspension feel designed for The Long Sweet Ride, so its no surprise Dirt Magazine called it Bang on! To make it even better, we added new rear shock mount options and shortened the rear chainstays. To make it even better, we added new rear shock mount options and shortened the rear chainstays.
