First Look: 2013 Kona Process DL
We get an exclusive first look at the 2013 Kona Process DL.
Chris Mandell and Mitchell Scott from Kona popped by DirtHQ with the Fabulous Gaby Brothers (Kona UK mob) for some homemade Ken Block onion pie, a cup of tea and some flap jack. The lads bought with them the 2013 Kona Process DL which to me looks like a very capable, fun enduro rig indeed.
We hope to get to keep the Process for a long term test, so we'll tell you more about our thoughts on the rig later.
Kona say: "With our all-new Process DL, we have created a lightweight, efficient pedaling platform with geometry and frame features that inspire confidence while descending. Basically, the Tits Magee of all-mountain/enduro trail bikes. Versatility is the key word here—a bike with a host of subtle but innovative design cues makes the Process DL one of the most ridiculously fun bicycles we've ever made."
We left Chris in the Dirt kitchen with a video camera to tell us all about the Process DL and to wash up the dishes after the Ken Block onion pie. Check the vid below.
The 2013 Kona website goes live on Monday 6th August, www.konaworld.com
The Process DL comes in at £4399 but the standard Process is a more affordable £2599 with a decent spec list.
