Racing isn’t for everyone, but for some, it is everything—even if it's only on Strava. Whatever drives you to grab a number plate and join the fray, Kona’s Hei Hei AL is prepared to get you to the finish line ahead of your competition. Its butted aluminum frame and RockShox Monarch RL shock gives you 100mm of rear travel, while a 120mm-travel RockShox Recon fork floats across rock gardens. The wide, lightweight 29-inch WTB wheels fly up climbs and optimize the traction of the Maxxis Ardent and Ikon tires so you can fly through the flow and grip with confidence in loose corners. SRAM serves up 11 nicely spaced speeds with outstanding 1x chain retention. SRAM also provides hydraulic brakes that deliver the well-modulated braking you need to carry more speed more of the time. With the stiff Kona cockpit and a Trans-X Dropper dropper post, you'll blow right past your buddy's fastest Strava time.
