Kona Lana’i 2017 Hardtail
The heart of a mountain biker and the versatility to do it all are at the core of the Lana’i. Built with a philosophy of making the right bike for the right user, the Lana’i sizing includes a 26-inch wheel size for smaller riders, while the rest of the line hits the trail with a 27.5-inch wheel. Whether it be gravel paths, light singletrack or even just getting around town, the Lana’i is your entry to adventure.
Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so we can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.
Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.
The benefits of the 27.5-inch wheel are simple: they roll over obstacles and track better than 26-inch wheels, but are more maneuverable and nimble than 29-inch ones.
