The 2022 Honzo is HERE!
Perhaps it’s a purist’s dream, or maybe it’s the fact that they’re just so darn fun, but the Honzos have some serious staying power. They are the basis of many a dream build, the yang to the yin of a bigger bike, and they are the heart and soul of Kona. The 2021 Honzos get a geometry overhaul, with slacker headtubes and shorter seat tubes, which allow for the use of longer dropper posts. But the big news is the introduction of the Honzo ESD. This thing is a bruiser. A mean-looking steel frame that pays homage to the Process X and runs a 150mm fork, the Honzo ESD is sure to be a hit among the steel bike/hardtail enthusiasts.
Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Honzo is a part of Kona’s foundation. The Honzo is the solution for the rider wanting something a bit more aggressive than a traditional cross-country hardtail. A 120mm fork provides just enough suspension to make quick work of technical sections of trail. Whether you’re a seasoned rider looking for timeless hardtail or a newer rider looking to go a bit deeper into the mountain bike world, the Honzo is an excellent choice.
