Beautiful Bikes: 2017 Kona Explosif Custom Build
One of the benefits of working in a bike shop is all the beautiful bikes that you get to work on day to day. Was a real joy to be able to have this 2017 Kona Explosif frame built up in the shop. The Explosif has been in Kona’s line up for years as a trail hardtail and has been modernized to fit 27.5 tires while remaining true to its steel construction. We finished this build with some blue Spank Oozy Trail wheels and a matching Kore bar. The rest of the build includes a Fox 34 fork, Sram NX11 drivetrain, TransX dropper post, and Elixer R brakes.
But its the paint job of the Kona Explosif that really makes this bike pop. Kona calls it Raw Steel Gold Tint and its a really unique colour. They even finished the bike with some gold paint around the cable guides to give the Explosif that brazed look.
