The Sutra LTD is one of those bikes that just changes everything. You
thought you were a mountain biker, but you find yourself sneaking off on
adventures on the LTD. You thought you were a roadie, but find yourself
riding singletrack when no one else is looking. That’s the best part
about the Sutra LTD—it broke the mold of what a bike has to be. The
Cromoly steel frame holds an 11-speed SRAM Rival 1 drivetrain and brakes
with 160mm rotors, providing ample power to climb and stop the bike.
Velo Shock-proof bar tape keeps the vibrations down and WTB Venture TCS
700x50c tires make quick work of tricky terrain.
“As you might expect for a gravel bike of this
character, there are plenty of bottle mounts …Steel is a robust material
for heavy use and long-distance escapades, which is probably why Kona
has backed it up with a lifetime warranty…”
