Kona's Blast is perfectly named, since it's designed specifically for all-day fun. The moment you stomp on the pedals, the snappy, yet tough Race Light Aluminum frame leaps forward, looking for the next rough section of trail for the RockShox fork to tame. The fast-rolling and frisky 27.5-inch Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires love carving up singletrack, and you give them the go-ahead with a 27-speed Shimano drivetrain that can handle anything. Always one step ahead, Kona added internal dropper post routing for all-mountain versatility and clean lines. A pair of no-nonsense hydraulic disc brakes keep you and the Blast this side of oblivion while you pilot with a grin from a race-ready, Kona-outfitted cockpit.
