EXPEDITION TOURING / WORLD TRAVEL / CULTURAL EXPLORATION
Marrakesh is our world-touring bike, designed for fully loaded, rugged exploration. We offer Marrakesh in a drop bar or flat bar setup. Both cockpits have different handling attributes, so we designed geometries best suited for each one. Marrakesh is stable and predictable when heavily loaded, and durable enough to be strapped down to the roof of a bus jostling over a remote pass. Turkish dust around the bottom bracket and mud from Thailand’s monsoon season make just as much sense on this bike as all the stickers from the other countries you’ve visited do. When you’ve decided to stop dreaming and actually make that year abroad a reality, Marrakesh is ready to pile on the miles.
ANY ROAD / GRAVEL / LIGHT TOURING
Vaya is our road adventure and light touring bike, designed to handle any road surface, from pavement to gravel to dirt. The tubing selection and stable geometry across the line makes for a bike that feels great unloaded or loaded for a fast tour, soaking up unpredictable surfaces mile after mile, from one town to the next. Vaya is an extremely versatile machine, always ready and able if the path turns less than ideal.
The Sutra represents a deep part of our DNA. Our founders Dan and Jake got hooked on long-distance adventure cycling many years before the beginning of Kona, riding far and wide throughout North America and Europe. It was natural to start making a world-touring machine 10 years ago and then making it better every year. The 2016 edition features a new frame that’s loaded with everything you need to ride deep, far and forever.
