Kona Electric Ute 2019 Electric Bike
Kona has deep roots in the development of what mountain bikes have become today. Since the company's inception in 1988 it has been under the same founding members' wings, and their staff are passionate about the empowerment of the bicycle. Today their range is vast, spanning across nearly all disciplines and offering models at all price points to reach a broad market of cyclists.
The Kona Electric Ute is an electric utility bike as the name may suggest and it's perfect for regular urban and rural commuters alike, or those who simply don't want a car. Haul whatever you need to - camping gear, groceries, trail building stuff like axes and shovels. even your kid or dog if they can sit still long enough.
The heavy duty rear rack features a durable wooden top deck which can hold large strap-down items, while the 2 double pannier bags have the volume to carry heaps more. The semi-integrated Bosch battey and discreet motor offers plenty of torque to take the strain off, with multiple levels of assistance to optimise battery life.
It's surprisingly lightweight for its size and is very responsive even off-road and loaded out, with it's multi-surface tyres, predictable rigid Alloy frame / fork and sharp hydraulic disc brakes. Full length mudguards, battery-powered lights and a double kickstand add even more practicality, and the backsweep trekking handlebar encourages a more upright seated position for comfort over long distances.
The Ute is also available non-electric.
