The Sutra is many things. It's functional. It's stylish. It's incredibly versatile, and it comes ready for the long haul on the bike tour of your dreams. Our Kona Cromoly steel frame is outfitted with a Brooks saddle, cork bar tape, BarCon shifters, fenders, and rack. It also features a Shimano Deore 3x10 drivetrain to give you the maximum gear range, and smooth-rolling Schwalbe Marathon Mondial 700x40c tires on WTB STi23 rims for those long days on the pavement. It's quite the looker right out of the box, and it's ready for your biggest adventure. What more could you want?
Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability, and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We've never strayed from cycling's original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine, and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.
Tubeless Compatible Rims
Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.
12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer dimension of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
