Kona’s range of Process bikes has proved immensely popular – and for good reason.
KONA PROCESS 111 DL
A 29” wheeled bike with just 111mm of travel in the Dirt 100? Yep that’s right, and what a bike it is. Those figures might have you thinking that this is some kind of whippet XC race weapon, but it’s not by any stretch of the imagination. Instead it is low, slack and solid, and as one person so aptly described it, ‘a whole puddle of trouble’. This bike really is pushing the boundaries of what we’ve come to expect from a short travel 29’er, and you only have to look at some of the photos in issue 141 of Dirt to see what it’s capable of. It shares many design characteristics with the longer travel Process bikes, and what a great design that is proving to be. Short travel has never been so much fun.
