Across every face of the hillside on which our towns are perched, there is an ever-expanding network of trails running through the woods. Sculpted ribbons of earth, stone, and wood have been carved into the landscape like a dirt roller coaster that you can ride anytime, for free!**
**Once you have the right bike, of course.
Bikes that are built for singletrack use feature wide tires for maximum off-road traction as well as powerful brakes, a wide range of gears, and (usually) some form of suspension.
Giant Talon – With features that would have only been found on top shelf models a decade ago (hydraulic disc brakes, oil damped suspension, and trigger shifters), this sub-$700 bike embodies the promise of trickle down technology. Off the floor and onto the trails, this bike is ready to shred!
Kona Honzo DL- Coupling modern tech and progressive geometry, the Honzo is living proof that fun and fast are not mutually exclusive. Also available: Kona Explosif – The Honzo’s equal in every category, but in a 27.5″-wheeled, steel frame platform.
Kona Process – With nearly a dozen builds available in an array of travel lengths (120mm, 140mm, 160mm, and 170mm) across the range of wheel sizes (26″, 27.5″, and 29″), there is a Kona Process for nearly every rider in almost any setting.
The crown jewel of the expansive Kona line, the Process is the proverbial silver bullet: fast, fun, and durable. With loads of praise heaped on this bike since it’s original release in 2014, there’s little to be said that hasn’t already been said a thousand times over:
