Kona’s new Entourage 170mm (that is about 7″ in old money) bike launched this week in Geneva.
We haven’t seen the bike ourselves yet, and we guess that it is aimed at ‘slopestyle’, mini DH, bike park type of action. Here’s the media blurb form the guys at Kona:
Kona 2012 Entourage Proto Testing with Aggy
We sent Kona Team member Graham Agassiz into the wilds of his interior British Columbia homeland to see what he thought. With 170mm of super plush travel, ultra short chainstays and geometry that’s quick, intuitive, and totally committed to going down, the Entourage is all about progression Kona style. And if the feedback from one of the world’s best big mountain riders is any indication, we’re on to something good. Get the real lowdown from Agassiz and his fellow gang member, Kona’s Gravity Product Manager, Chris Mandell. Together they’ve crafted a jewel, one explained in detail through our newly released Proto Testing video, and in a Sneak Peek interview with Mandell where he breaks down the design philosophy and marquee features of the all-new 2012 Kona Entourage.
