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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Tubeless Compatible Rims:
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.
