Catch yourself a delicious Bass. Paul Basagoitia is a Kona rider who happens to find himself on top of slopestyle podiums a lot, so Kona decided to give him his own signature bike. The tough 7005-aluminum frame, 4-inches of save-your-bacon travel and tight geometry make this a perfect slopestyle ripper, urban assaulter and dirt jumper. Inspired by BMX insanity, the Bass gets short chainstays for more whippability and BMX-style cranks running 28/14 micro gearing. That simple drivetrain is light, stiff, gives you better clearance over obstacles, and doesn't get hung up on ramp lips or coping. You even get Kona controls, burly Sun rims and fat Maxxis tires to pilot you down the hill, through the rhythms and over the jumps. And to slow you down for the cover shot, Juicy discs.
