Kona’s racing heritage runs deep. Our first bike was designed by Joe Murray in 1988, one of the world’s top mountain bike racers at the time. Our commitment to mountain bike racing remains stalwart to this day. We have National Champions, World Cup winners and two World Champion titles to the Kona name.
To encourage future champions, Kona believes in supporting up-and-coming riders from the grass roots level. The Kona Grassroots program is designed to help future world champions start their racing careers.
The Kona Grassroots program is looking for 25 motivated regional riders looking to move up to the national and professional ranks of their cycling discipline. Open to road, cyclo-cross, cross-country, enduro and downhill racers as well as free riders and slopestyle competitors.
If you are ready for the next level you can apply to become a Kona Grassroots rider by contacting your local Kona dealer; www.konaworld.com/dealers.cfm
