When all you want is dirt, rocks, and a trustworthy rig that likes to get into trouble, Explosif fits the bill. This updated Kona classic comes to you as a 27.5-inch wheel, trail-scorching machine, spec’d to tear it up on singletrack. The Reynolds Cromoly frame features sliding thru-axle dropouts and a tapered headtube, so you get the ride quality and longevity steel is known for with the modern designs that let you do more. A RockShox Revelation RC fork devours whatever you throw it at, letting you blast through rocky stretches and swoop through rutted corners while the Maxxis tires bite earth like a pit bull. Wide WTB i29 rims shape that rubber up to work its best, and SRAM Guide R brakes take full advantage of that dialed traction, letting you brake later with modulation and confidence-boosting power. SRAM's GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain delivers a tight system with the range and precision to keep the stoke factor high. And, Kona makes sure you have the control to handle all that go-fast hardware with their own purpose-built cockpit components. The result is a trail-blasting stick of dynamite and you’re the match.
