Details

The cream of the crop, the Libre CR DL leaves no stone…er piece of gravel unturned. This gorgeous Race Light Carbon frame provides both performance and comfort across varying terrain. Powered by your legs and an 11-speed Shimano GRX 810 drivetrain, the Libre CR DL shifts with confidence in the mud, on pavement, over singletrack… With a +RAD adjustable dropper post, 700x45c WTB Riddler TCS tires, an Easton EA 70AX wheelset, and a Kona Verso Carbon fork that can carry a ton of gear, the Libre CR DL is the perfect weapon for any adventure, no matter how far away.

Kona Carbon
Designed to be lightweight and built to demanding standards. Carbon fiber has long been praised for its weight and strength, but rather than chase grams, we place our efforts on the performance that is possible when the right high-modulus fibers are in the right places. Our designers work very closely with our manufacturer to ensure there is no compromise to the desired ride characteristics, durability and – finally – weight stipulations that we expect from our bikes.

Integrated Headset
Integrated headsets are simple, light, and effective headset systems whereby the bearing race cups are actually part of the head tube, and they are either machined away and left with the head tube, bonded (carbon), or welded in with steel or alloy. Like an internal headset, an integrated headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.

Tapered Head Tube
More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it's needed.

Tubeless Compatible Rims
Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems.

12x142mm Axle
12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
