Kona Taro Alluminum 29er Hardtail trailbike-2013

For the next season Kona has added an aluminum sibling to go along with their Honzo 29er steel trail bike, they’re calling it the Taro.

The new Kona Taro 29er bikes get their attitude straight from their steel 29″ wheel brother, but this ride shown above utilizes a 6061 alloy 29″ frame and geared dropouts, no single speed option. But Kona kept the same shorter chain stay and slacker head tube, that locks in at 68 degrees. Though the chain stay length compared to the Honzo is slightly longer at 16.5 inches vs. 16.3 on the steely.

These 29″ bikes have excellent stand over capabilities. Developed with a focus on technical aggressive mountain biking, the newest ride also has a similar spec kit as the Kona Honzo 29, one that is very focused on getting the most out of gnar single track, without pulling from the walllet.

The complete Kona 29er bikes include a 1×9 drive train with a front Rock Shox Sektor 120 mm fork and a price of $1,299 USD.
