Like the famous pineapples of its namesake island, Kona's Lana'i is one sweet treat! Its butted aluminum frame provides exceptional handling and durability, readying the Lana'i for everything from singletrack adventures to riding to work and back. What's more, the bump-busting Suntour suspension fork and powerful mechanical-disc brakes ensure you can handle any terrain in comfort. And don't forget about the fast, smooth 24-speed drivetrain that evens out the last climb before home, not to mention the Kenda 27.5-inch tires that give you the stick you need around corners.
Owned this for about a month and half now. Drives very well, it's very light for a mountain bike. Definitely the best bike I've ever owned. My only problems are the uncomfortable stock seat and the pedals that I got added onto the bike to replace the stock pedals. One of them makes a clicking noise every time I pedal down. Probably going to have to buy new pedals already as I don't think they are under warranty. I would also prefer grip shifters but that's just because I'm old school.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
