The Sutra LTD is what happens when a mountain biker imagines a touring bike: SRAM Rival wide-range 1x drivetrain and hydraulic discs are complemented by tubeless-ready wheels and tires. This year’s Sutra LTD gets thru-axles and flat mount disc brakes, and with five bottle mounts and front and rear rack provisions you always have the means to carry whatever you need to go the distance. The Sutra LTD simply begs to be ridden afar, with or without baggage.
Once upon a time a bunch of mountain bikers dreamed up something wild: a drop bar bike that felt like a mountain bike and rode like a mountain bike but had the speed of a road bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption and ride quality, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes, a 1x drivetrain and beefy, yet fast-rolling 700x50c tires. It had a wider bar with a 16-degree flare that made for more aggressive descending. Born of that dream, the Sutra LTD came to reality in all of its dreamy glory and is an absolute riot on-road or off. - Kona chromoly Butted frame - Kona Project Two chromoly Disc Touring fork - SRAM Rival 1x11 drivetrain - WTB KOM Light Team i25 TCS rims w/WTB Venture TCS 700x50c tires - SRAM Rival 1 Flat mount hydraulic disc brakes
The Sutra is Kona's classic steel touring bike, with all the accoutrements you’ll need to set out on your dream trip. The Brooks B17 saddle and Shimano Deore drivetrain are complemented by the confidence-inspiring Hayes disc brakes and Schwalbe Marathon Mondial touring tires, giving you comfort and reliability over the long haul. Full-coverage fenders add to your happiness when life on the road turns wet, and a rear rack gives you loads of options when it comes to carrying gear. Whether it’s a weekend out of town or a summer on the open road, the Sutra is your ticket to freedom.
