“I lean towards the rougher and blacker trails and live for moments where I can point the bike in a straight line and let off the brakes. I like a good bunny hop, log hop, a good gap and I am always attempting for style points. I like to pedal uphill at a medium pace and not use up too much energy. I wont say no to shuttles ever, and I love hitting a bike park at least once a week… So I need a bike for all these things and the KONA Process X in a mullet is just that!”

Wheelset

I wanted a wheel that is stiff and responsive for corners, whips, and placing the back wheel just where you want. A wheel that tracks straight in chunder but doesn’t feel harsh. The TR37‘ s are perfect for these desires. They soften the ride but feel stiff in the handling.
