Kona bikes are designed for riders who want to hit the trails or streets hard, and five stunning models from the Canadian brand’s 2015 range are now available at Halfords.
The lineup includes the limited edition NuNu 27.5, which is exclusively available from Halfords. This smooth-riding cross-country bike has been updated with 650b (27.5in) wheels and will retail for £699.

Elsewhere in the mountain bike range, you’ll find the Lava Dome 29er, Fire Mountain 27.5 and the long-serving, but thoroughly updated Blast 27.5.
The Lava Dome is built around a 6061 aluminium frame and a Suntour XCT fork that provides 100mm of suspension travel. This sure-footed 29er is priced at £499, and comes equipped with a SRAM X4 24-speed drivetrain. It’s a great choice for riders who want to really start honing their mountain bike skills.

The Fire Mountain 27.5 is mid-wheeled ride for mountain bikers who want to venture a bit further off the beaten track. It features Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, a Shimano Altus 27-speed drivetrain and a 100mm travel Suntour XCR 32 fork – a great package for just £549.

Finally, there’s the Blast 27.5, a £799 hardtail constructed from Kona’s renowned Scandium frame tubing. The 100mm travel RockShox XC30 fork is matched beautifully to a Shimano Deore/Alivio 27-speed drivetrain, Shimano M396 hydraulic disc brakes and Maxxis tyres. The Blast is one of the longest-running models in Kona’s history and with features like this, it’s easy to see why.
All four mountain bike models are available in 17in, 19in and 21in frame sizes.
Finally, for commuters and more leisurely riders, there’s the Kona Dew, a hybrid bike that’s at home on both country tracks and city streets. It retails for £399, and comes with alloy V-brakes, a 24-speed Shimano drivetrain and Kenda 700c tyres.
