The Sutra LTD comes out when a mountain biker imagines a touring bike. The drive and hydraulic disc brakes are complemented by tubeless ready wheels and tires. The Sutra LTD of this model year gets quick-release axles and flat-mount disc brakes to continue driving forward - just like its highly acclaimed predecessors. The Sutra LTD only begs to be driven far away, with or without luggage.
Rims compatible with tubeless tyres
Tubeless compatible rims allow tyres with greater puncture resistance, better tyre grip on track, lower rolling resistance and weight savings compared to conventional tube and tyre systems.
12 x 142 mm rear axle
12 x 142 mm, 12 x 148 and 12 x 157 rear axle standards offer two main advantages for Kona riders: the 12 mm diameter of the rear axle ensures maximum stability on the rear hub and frame, while the 142/148/157 mm outer diameter of the hub ensures that the wheel is fast and correctly positioned in the frame before the rear axle can be used. From 2016, the 12 x 148 standard will be available as a mix, especially on the new Honzo alloy. 12 x 148 offers more tyre clearance on the chainstay, while the rear wheel is more stable and durable than a 12 x 142 thru axle.
