Kona Introduces New Lacondeguy Inc. Dirt Jump Slayer


Andreu Lacondeguy is hands down, tats out, one of the best mountain bike dirt jumpers in the world today. Sweet style, balls out aggression, and no bullshit, giterdone attitude.

“I really wanted a bike that was clean and simple,” says the 20-year-old Clump rider from Barcelona, Spain. “Something made specifically for really aggressive tricks.” Yes, Andreu’s English is getting better.

Kona designers picked Lacondeguy’s brain over the course of the last year to come up with a bike design that could live up to the talent and punishment of one of the planet’s most psycho gifted riders.

The result is a bike made entirely of high grade Reynolds 835 cromoly steel tubing. Embracing the snap and shock absorption of steel, and applying it using a stiff, oversized front triangle design, joined with a short, snappy rear triangle, all in the name of epic standover and premium performance, we’ve crafted a serious gem.

“This bike is insane. Really super sick,” says Andreu, who has been riding his first signature model since early July.

Other features of the bike include a 1.5-inch head tube, internal headset, super steep sloping top tube, integrated seat clamp bolt located under the rear stays, badass flat black paint job, and minimalist graphics (like, none).
