It’s not everyday that you see a bike that’s designed to be incredibly compliant and comfortable while also being incredibly fast. The Kona Zone LTD was designed by a diverse team of crit racers, endurance riders, cyclocross racers, and track racers. These backgrounds helped shape the Zone LTD into a truly spectacular machine that’s capable of long days in the saddle on a multitude of surfaces and maybe even a road race or two. Wide tire clearance up to 32mm tires (28mm with fenders) and flat mount hydraulic brakes means you’ll be able to ride year round regardless of the weather conditions.
For the drivetrain Kona decided to spec the Zone LTD with top notch SRAM Red eTap 11 speed. Red eTap is known for its minimal maintenance and superb shifting quality. A 50/34 chainring setup with an 11-28t cassette ensures you’ll be able to climb up any hill you encounter. Mavic All Road Pro wheels paired with incredibly supple and fast rolling Challenge Paris Roubaix tires round off the wheel setup. The superb SRAM Red hydraulic brakes handle the stopping duties and work in any and all conditions. For the cockpit setup Kona turned to Easton and decided to go with an EC90 seatpost, EC90 SLX handlebars, and an EA70 stem.
