Posted over at the Kona Cog are the details of an all new model for spring 2012. Seems Kona is partnering with Lynksey to offer an American-made titanium 29er – the Raijin.
Designed around all the modern touches like a Press Fit 30 bottom bracket shell, 44m headtube for tapered steerers, sliding dropouts for geared or singlespeed use, a 27.2mm seatpost for flexness, and five sizes to choose from, all built around a 100mm fork.
Kona says it will be available in April. We don’t know any details on pricing yet, but stayed tuned. We’re heading to the official Kona 2012 launch at the 24 Hours of Old Pueblo next month and we’re hoping to get some laps on one of these.
If we do, you’ll hear about it.
