Product Details

Kona Lava Dome Hardtail Bike

The Lava Dome hardtail bike from Kona is a fast, agile and fun mountain bike (MTB) that's ideal for cross country (XC), trail and general fitness off-road riding. It features a 6061-aluminium frame with modern enduro-inspired slack geometry, a 9-Speed microShift groupset with a wide-ranging 11-46T cassette and Tektro disc brakes. Plus, it's equipped with SR Suntour suspension forks, Joytech hubs and 29" Alex rims wrapped in WTB Trail Boss tyres.

Efficient, Agile and Fun Cross Country Hardtail Bike

Engineered to provide an efficient and dependable performance, the Lava Dome features a precise and smooth-shifting Microshift Advent 9-speed drivetrain with a clutch rear derailleur as well as reliable Advent shifters and sleek internal cable routing. This version rolls upon 29” wheels that can accept up to a 2.6” tyre making it ready for everything in its path. Plus, it's equipped with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes for exceptional all-weather braking power.

Durable and Lightweight Kona Alloy Frame

Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminium alloys are used extensively throughout their range of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so they can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.

Stable, Balanced and Comfortable Frame Geometry

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.

Versatile and Stylish Mountain Bike

The Lava Dome is kind of like your best friend, but in bike form. It’s awesome in the dirt. It’s awesome to rally around town. It’s awesome poking around neighbourhood singletrack, and it does it all in a dependable way. The Lava Dome features an easy-to-use 9-speed drivetrain with a clutch rear derailleur as well as sleek internal cable routing and dropouts. With strong 29” wheels that can accept up to a 2.6” tyres, this bike is ready for everything in its path!
