Super-stiff, big-sweep bar for the Kona fans and a Kona logo for a trip down stem memory lane
Skip to view product specifications

If you’ve got a Kona and you haven’t already got matching bars then these might be right up your street. But you’ll have to favour a seriously stiff feel, as the oversized bulge on this bar comes all the way up over the bends for proper wrist-breaking feedback levels. But the big nine-degree backsweep keeps things cruiser comfy from a positional point of view so there’s good balance here.

When we did a bar and stem test about three years ago they all looked like this one, so if you’re after retro appeal then this could be the ideal stem for you. A big machined square with massive pockets just behind the extended flange bar clamp creates an I-beam cross section, with big triple bolts snugly hidden in the fat, tall back end. But it’s no stiffer than most currently available, and it’s definitely not 175g as Kona claim.
