Kona Road / Endurance / Gravel Bikes
When the sealed road ends that's often where the real fun begins. Kona's line of endurance and gravel bikes give you the best of road bike geometry and cyclocross capability so you can ride further and explore more.
How do you improve on a bike that already feels pretty damn close to perfect? Steel seemed like a solid move. Helping to smooth out your ride and turn heads, the Rove DL (formerly called the Rove ST) features a stunning Kona Butted Cromoly frame and Project Two Cromoly Disc fork. A reliable SRAM Rival 1x11 drivetrain and TRP Spyre C brakes ensure the bike functions as nicely as it looks. The all-new Rove DL is running on WTB KOM Light Team i23 TCS rims wrapped in WTB Venture TCS 47mm tires, making it ready for anything! Real steel for a real good ride Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We've never strayed from cycling's original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve. Tapered head tube for added strength and durability More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it's needed. Tubeless compatible rims for more cushion and fewer flats Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems. 12x142mm axle for a stiffer wheel 12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer dimension of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted. 650B wheels with wide, adventure-loving tires 650B wheels and tires have a similar overall diameter to a traditional 700c gravel or commuting tire but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, taller tire. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and mixed-surface tires means they can be run comfortably at lower pressures while still rolling quickly on a variety of surfaces. It's the best of both worlds.
The Sutra LTD is one of those bikes that just changes everything. You thought you were a mountain biker, but you find yourself sneaking off on adventures on the LTD. You thought you were a roadie, but find yourself riding singletrack when no one else is looking. That’s the best part about the Sutra LTD—it broke the mold of what a bike has to be. The Cromoly steel frame holds an 11-speed SRAM Rival 1 drivetrain and brakes with 160mm rotors, providing ample power to climb and stop the bike. Velo Shock-proof bar tape keeps the vibrations down and WTB Venture TCS 700x50c tires make quick work of tricky terrain.

The Kona Rove has been a favorite for years, offering excellent all-road and gravel capability and allowing riders to enjoy the serious versatility of a 650b do-it-all bike. Check out what’s new: Beautiful, Efficient Frame The Rove DL is an updated version of the ST model, which was already widely popular. For this build, Kona built a beautiful Kona Butted Cromoly frame to work with their Project Two Cromoly Disc fork to give riders a gorgeous looking design that smooths out the bumps in the road. No Hill Too Steep Not only does it look great, it rides like a champ as well. The SRAM rival 1x11 drivetrain gives you all the gearing you need to tackle the toughest climbs out there. Confident Braking The TRP Spyre C disc brakes allow you to really send it downhill because you’ll be able to stay in control no matter what the road or weather throws at you. Off-Road Ready Those are some big tires you’re looking at, 650 x 47c to be exact. Slapped on some WTB i23 tubeless ready rims and you’ve got yourself an adventure machine that’s ready to explore backroads, trails, and more.
The Kona Rove ST is the perfect bike for nearly every situation. The Rove ST is designed to crush long distance gravel rides, take you to work, go bikepacking, and whatever else you can think of. So what makes the Rove ST such a versatile bike? Cromoly Frame The Rove ST comes with a beautiful steel frame that toes the line between durability, lightweight, and comfort. This Kona steel is easy on your body and easier on the eyes. It’s got mounting options for days so you can bring all the gear you need, whether you’re headed to work or out on an adventure. Wide, Stable Tires The 650b x 47c tires offer tons of traction and stability on rough dirt roads, as well as lots of comfort for pavement riding. Wherever you go, you’ll be comfortable and confident. Super Capable Drivetrain The 2x9 Shimano Sora drivetrain gives you all the gearing you need to pedal up steep hills and dash downhill. Powerful Disc Brakes The Tektro Dual Piston mechanical disc brakes offer you all the stopping power and confidence you need to take on difficult terrain.

The Rove AL 650 is a perfect entry-level bike suitable for pavement with tire clearance big enough for off-road riding. The Rove AL 650 keeps you rolling steady at a budget-friendly price. For those riders looking for a 650B-wheeled machine with all the features of its bigger-wheeled sibling, look no further. A 2x Shimano 8-speed drivetrain, Hayes disc brakes, and 47mm WTB Venture Comp tires make the Rove 650 AL an excellent choice for all-terrain ventures. Kona 6061 Aluminum Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. Tough, durable, and light alloys, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing's wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so we can fine-tune a particular frame's strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application. Internal Headset Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. 650B Wheels 650B wheels and tires have a similar overall diameter to a traditional 700c gravel or commuting tire but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, taller tire. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and mixed-surface tires means they can be run comfortably at lower pressures while still rolling quickly on a variety of surfaces. It's the best of both worlds.
Steel is real, and the Kona Rove AL 700 is as real as it gets. It's the perfect all-road and gravel bike for weekend explorations, and it's jam packed with features while still being friendly with your wallet. This bike is great for heading out on a ride with no destination in mind, and for seeking out forgotten roads and riding creative routes. An aluminum frame is outfitted with Hayes mechanical disc brakes, a wide gear range, and WTB SX19 700c wheels with WTB Riddler Comp 37c tires, making the Rove AL 700 an affordable, road-ready companion.
