Kona Unit 2020


The Unit has garnered a cult following among serious bikepackers. The love for fully-rigid steel is real. Still made with Reynolds Cromoly, the 2020 Unit is getting a facelift and a shiny new set of 29” boost wheels with thru-axles to help conquer rougher terrain. We’ve spec’d the Unit as a single-speed but its full-length freehub body allows for gears and the dropout has a derailleur hanger, should you want to modify your setup. Updated geometry provides better handling and a more comfortable ride, so you can get lost on those backwoods adventures!
