Kona's Major Jake serves up Jake's legendary 'cross performance with a generous helping of carbon fiber goodness. The feathery carbon frame floats over the rough stuff and hammers the straightaways, while a tapered full-carbon fork takes the sting out of the course and tracks deftly through the ruts. Sturdy WTB wheels make light work of and muddy 'cross courses in the fall and gravel roads the rest of the year. Supple, grippy Clement tires are ready for any terrain. The smooth-shifting Shimano 105 drivetrain means you'll keep moving no matter how muddy the course may get, and powerful Shimano disc brakes let you control speed regardless of weather conditions.
The legend continues, with all the cyclocross-dominating spirit of the original Jake the Snake, updated to keep the competition scrambling. Kona’s long-running ‘cross racer is better than ever, with a lightweight, race-ready aluminum frame and full-carbon CX fork. Bunny hops are back on the menu with tough, WTB rims wrapped in tenacious Clement MXP tires, while Shimano delivers a Tiagra drivetrain that gives you the wide-ranging gears you need to master the entire course and the durability to do it every weekend. Shimano's hydraulic disc brakes are ‘cross favorites with the complete package: lightweight, powerful in any conditions, and reliable all season long. Transitions will feel like slipping in and out of a glove with Kona’s just-right cockpit pieces, tailored to the needs of modern racers. Hop that barrier and hop on the Jake to ride the Snake!
