Born in the deep forests of Vancouver, British Columbia in 1988, and now available in downtown Maastricht. Kona has since gone on to become one of the most influential bicycle manufacturers in the world. Known for it’s innovations in mountain bike design, creative marketing and more recently, the finest road and commuter bikes.
Named after the breezy trade winds that keep the Hawaiian Islands lush and tropical, throughout the company’s history, their designers have always believed that technology isn’t about creating new confusing acronyms and high-tech principles that may or may not help a bike to ride better. Quite often it’s the simplest innovations that enable the greatest improvements.
With offices in Vancouver, BC, Bellingham, Washington, and Geneva, Switzerland, and a staff that lives and breathes riding bikes, today Kona is perhaps best known for its blend of modern technology and creative thought. A lot of the company’s most noteworthy technology comes in the form of its undying attention to detail. From steel to carbon fiber to titanium, refined aluminum alloys through to Scandium 69, Kona features perfected bicycle models ranging from Kids’ cyclocross bikes to World Cup downhill race machines, stylish inner city commuters to flat-out, perfectly priced road bikes. Still owned by its original founders, Kona is one of cycling’s great success stories. At Alley Cat Bikes & Coffee we are extremely proud to be one of the few certified Kona retailers.
