Call it a pedal assist bike, or an E-Bike, or maybe even a BUV (Bike Utility Vehicle). The Remote was our most successful foray into electric bike land. Built off of our Honzo platform, the Remote is a hardtail that makes accessing your favorite zones easier than ever. 120mm of front suspension with a Rockshox Recon RL fork, beefy 27.5 x 3.0" tires, and Bosch’s Performance Line CX motor make getting remote easier than ever. - Kona 7005 Aluminum Butted frame - Shimano STEPS E8000 motor - RockShox Recon RL 120mm solo air fork - SRAM NX 11-speed drivetrain - ST i40 TCS 2.0 27.5" wheels - Maxxis High Roller II 27.5x3.0" - Old Man Mountain Sherpa rear rack
The Remote has become the veteran of the Kona e-MTB lineup. It's been a top choice for trail builders, backwoods explorers, and sportsmen of all kinds. Derived from the Honzo, a redesigned frame brings a sportier version to the masses and holds a 504 Wh internal battery that powers Shimano's E7000 motor. 140mm of front suspension is provided by a Suntour Zeron 35 fork. A 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain provides reliable shifting while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes keep the speed in check. The all-new Remote is sporty, practical, and perhaps the perfect way to dip your toe into the eBike waters! Kona 6061 Aluminum Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet 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 we can fine-tune a particular frame's strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application. Internal Headset Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. Tapered Head Tube 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. Tubeless Compatible Rims Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems. 12x148mm Axle 12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
