The Sutra is Kona's classic steel touring bike, with all the accoutrements you’ll need to set out on your dream trip. The Brooks B17 saddle and Shimano Deore drivetrain are complemented by the confidence-inspiring Hayes disc brakes and Schwalbe Marathon Mondial touring tires, giving you comfort and reliability over the long haul. Full-coverage fenders add to your happiness when life on the road turns wet, and a rear rack gives you loads of options when it comes to carrying gear. Whether it’s a weekend out of town or a summer on the open road, the Sutra is your ticket to freedom.
What happens when you put a mountain bike, road bike, and touring bike in a blender and hit go? The Sutra. Call it the drop bar bike for mountain bikers, the most capable touring bike, or the beast of all burdens, but the Sutra is definitely one thing: badass. 700c wheels make it fast-rolling. Beefier tires make rough terrain disappear, and there’s just something really special about the feel of a steel frame in motion. The Sutra is many things. It’s gorgeous. It’s stylish. It’s incredibly versatile, and it comes ready for the long haul on the bike tour of your dreams. Our Kona chromoly steel frame is outfitted with a Brooks saddle, cork bar tape, bar-end shifters, fenders, and rear rack. It also features a Shimano Deore 3x10 drivetrain to give you maximum gearing and smooth-rolling WTB STi23 36h WTB rims for those long days on the pavement. It’s quite the looker right out of the box, and it’s ready for your biggest adventure.

The Sutra LTD is what happens when a mountain biker imagines a touring bike: SRAM Rival wide-range 1x drivetrain and hydraulic discs are complemented by tubeless-ready wheels and tires. This year’s Sutra LTD gets thru-axles and flat mount disc brakes, and with five bottle mounts and front and rear rack provisions you always have the means to carry whatever you need to go the distance. The Sutra LTD simply begs to be ridden afar, with or without baggage.
Once upon a time a bunch of mountain bikers dreamed up something wild: a drop bar bike that felt like a mountain bike and rode like a mountain bike but had the speed of a road bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption and ride quality, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes, a 1x drivetrain and beefy, yet fast-rolling 700x50c tires. It had a wider bar with a 16-degree flare that made for more aggressive descending. Born of that dream, the Sutra LTD came to reality in all of its dreamy glory and is an absolute riot on-road or off. - Kona chromoly Butted frame - Kona Project Two chromoly Disc Touring fork - SRAM Rival 1x11 drivetrain - WTB KOM Light Team i25 TCS rims w/WTB Venture TCS 700x50c tires - SRAM Rival 1 Flat mount hydraulic disc brakes
