Kona Satori – The Bike Expert
The Kona Satori gets it’s name from the Buddhist expression for enlightenment. This gives us the impression that you will fulfil more of your life with the Kona Satori, or something along these lines. This may be a little bit to religious or to full of it for most people, but for some MTB’ers, it really is all that! However, for the rest of us, I’ll go through the Satori as I would any other bike, pointing out it’s flaws as well as it’s selling points.
The Kona Satori is the best bike in both of it’s range from Kona in 2012. It’s classed as both an all mountain and a 29er mountain bike, but, in both categories it’s dual suspension. This means that the Satori is diverse as well as great bicycle, however, the only downside is that it’s also the most expensive of the 2012 29er’s from Kona.
With SRAM X7 and X9 derailleurs, Easton rims and hubs, Maxxis tires and then a number of Kona’s own components, the Kona Satori is both quality and cheap enough for people to afford. With the frame moulded out of 7005 Aluminium, it’s not the very lightest that has ever been developed, but this again keeps the price down, where you would have paid an extra thousand at least for Carbon Fibre.
