The Sutra LTD is one of those bikes that just changes everything. You thought you were a mountain biker, but you find yourself sneaking off on adventures on the LTD. You thought you were a roadie, but find yourself riding singletrack when no one else is looking. That’s the best part about the Sutra LTD—it broke the mold of what a bike has to be. The Cromoly steel frame holds an 11-speed SRAM Rival 1 drivetrain and brakes with 160mm rotors, providing ample power to climb and stop the bike. Velo Shock-proof bar tape keeps the vibrations down and WTB Venture TCS 700x50c tires make quick work of tricky terrain.
Very few materials offer as much shock absorption, durability, and supple-ride characteristics as steel. We’ve never strayed from cycling’s original material and have worked tirelessly to adapt, refine and innovate Kona Cromoly framesets as rider demands continue to evolve.
Tubeless Compatible Rims
Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.
12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
